EVITA

On the 23rd & 24th  March 2017 we were delighted to stage the musical Evita at Epsom Playhouse, It was an amazing production, part of the celebration of the 125th Anniversaries of Ursuline High School and  Wimbledon College. The musical was performed by students from Year 8 to Year 13, featuring some of the best-loved songs in musical theatre, including Dont Cry for Me Argentina and Another Suitcase in Another Hall.

Composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Tim Rice, this hit show recounts the story of Eva Peron, wife of the Argentine dictator Juan Peron, following her short life from humble beginnings through to extraordinary wealth, power and status. She ultimately became the highly revered First Lady of Argentina.

The students from both schools had the opportunity to produce the  whole musical, being the cast, crew and members of the orchestra. They have put in a tremendous number of hours of rehearsals singing and acting. The set, the costumes and the lights added up to this extraordinary production. Students performed to two sell out audiences, with standing ovations and positive feedback from members of our community.

Many thanks to all involved!

An extra special thank you to the Drama, Music and Arts departments at Ursuline and Wimbledon College for their dedication  in ensuring such a superb production!
