Audition Information For
Michele Pawk – director
Lauri Young – music director
Eva Peron—A passionate and powerful character who sings in a multiple of musical styles: quasi-Latin, rock, contemporary musical theatre, classical. Vocal range is three octaves: E below middle C to a belt or heavy mix E5.
Peron—essentially a baritone role but actually has one number that requires a B flat and C. !!! If we find the right person, these notes are negotiable.
Che—the dramatic foil to Eva. Che also sings in a multiple of musical styles although he is mostly musical theatre pop rock. Must be comfortable sitting on top in the F, G, A flat range. The voice needs to be intense and powerful.
Peron’s Mistress—Mixy low soprano to E5.
Magaldi—the nightclub singer. A baritone role with an easy G and an occasional belted A. A commercial, crooner sound.
Ensemble will be singing in multiple styles: classical, Latin, contemporary musical theatre, quasi-rock. I will need some bass baritone men who have a low F. Sopranos with a high C. There are lots complicated numbers in the show that involve changing meters and close harmony. I will need some excellent musicians for this show.
Ensemble of 9 women & 9 men
