Monroe Township High School Performing Arts Center, 200 Schoolhouse Road, Monroe Township, NJ 08831
http://www.monroetownshipculturalarts.com/events/ provides more information on the performance, including:
EVITA charts the rags-to-riches rise of the First Lady of Argentina, who won the love of her countrymen after marrying military leader-turned-president Juan Peron. Set in Buenos Aires from 1934 to 1952, the musical follows Eva Duarte Peron on her journey from fatherless child to ambitious actress to the most powerful woman in Latin America—and, eventually,
to a saint-like figure after her death from cancer at age 33. The events in Evita’s life are presented in song and editorialized on by the show’s narrator, Che.
The score includes tunes like “Oh What a Circus”, “The Art of the Possible”, and the classic “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina”.
Don’t miss this wonderful production right here in Monroe Township.
