CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

THE ROLE OF EVA PERON HAS BEEN CAST. All other roles are open. The roles of Che, Juan Peron, Magaldi and the Mistress may be considered for Equity contracts. ALL OTHER ROLES WILL BE NON-UNION CONTRACTS. Palos Verdes Performing Arts strongly encourages performers of all backgrounds to audition.

CHE: (Male, 18-35) The narrator of the show.  Charming, impulsive, intelligent and sarcastic, he is a radical activist who isn’t afraid to hold Eva and Juan accountable for their actions.  High rock tenor, low A to high B, falsetto to high F.

JUAN PERON: (Male, 30-50) An officer in the Argentinian army who rises to become the Argentine President. Dignified, charming, and authoritative, but aware of the dangerous position he is in. Deeply in love with Eva, and willing to go along to get along with her political aspirations.  Bass/Baritone to high F.

MISTRESS: (Female, 18-25) Juan Peron’s mistress who is “dismissed” by Eva.  Beautiful, fragile, vulnerable and innocent.  She is also a member of the ensemble. Low A to a high E.

MAGALDI: (Male, to play 30 - 40) A tango singer with whom Eva has her first love affair. Overly charming and a bit slick, he is a larger-than-life classic lounge singer who gets more than he bargained for with Eva. He is also a member of the ensemble. High tenor High G.

ENSEMBLE: Seeking a broad range of males and females of all ethnicities from late teens to 70s.  Must be excellent singers and learn music quickly.
