BAOS Limelight, our youth group are proud to present Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical and award winning masterpiece – EVITA. The show features the smash hits: ‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’ and ‘Another Suitcase In Another Hall’ and ‘On this Night of a thousand stars’.
Argentina’s controversial First Lady, Eva Peron, is the subject of this dynamic true story which is told through captivating musical compositions and dance with Latin and jazz influences. The musical starts 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’.
Director Richard Cox returns to Limelight and promises to make this our best production yet. Simon Eastwood retains the baton as Musical Director while seventeen year old Limelighters, Zoë Blackall and Hattie Brannam, will work together on the Choreography.
Limelight’s production of EVITA will be on stage at Queen Mary’s Hall, Queen Mary’s College, Basingstoke from Thursday 27th to Saturday 29th October 2016.
The Limelighters will be hoping to repeat the success of their last two productions, “Grease” and ”Into the Woods” which were both runners up in the NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) SE region Youth-West award and received an Accolade for Excellence.
The show runs from Thurs 27th October – Saturday 29th October 2016 at Queen Mary’s Hall, Basingstoke.
