Evita (HK Season) Auditions

18/03/2018

Winner of more than 20 major awards, the original West End and Broadway production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical EVITA comes to Hong Kong from May 11 2018, directed by the legendary Hal Prince.
 
Presented by Lunchbox Theatrical Productions with auditions held in conjunction with HKYAF, we are now seeking 18 talented young performers aged 8 - 12 to join the cast. This is a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform alongside musical theatre professionals!

EVITA charts the story of Eva Perón, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Perón, from her humble beginnings through to the extraordinary wealth, power and status which ultimately led her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’ by the Argentine people. Featuring some of the best-loved songs in musical theatre, including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, Oh What A Circus, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall, this iconic, award-winning show promises to be the theatrical event of the year!

To audition, please first read through the “Audition Briefing” document thoroughly.
