The Manly Musical Society has gone to new heights with the world-famous musical EVITA, about the renown Argentine political leader Eva Perón, wife of Argentine president Juan Perón.

Evita tells the story of an ordinary woman from the Argentine slumps who, after the second world war, became one of the most powerful and influential women in the world. A very inspirational story, not just about one woman's life, but also about power, adulation and corruption.

The musical EVITA has been produced since the late 1970s with great successes around the world, and Manly's Star of the Sea Theatre is now proud to be presenting this timeless musical in Sydney's northern beaches.

Manly Musical Society's Keira Connelly stars as Eva Perón. With her strong voice and charisma, she is able to captivate the audience and bring Eva Perón to life.

Neville Berwyn is perfectly cast as Juan Perón. His portrayal of the Argentine president presents us with the classic stereotype of a South American leader, both a showman and an accessory to Eva's flamboyance.

A special mention should go to Kiana Carty and Maeve Cox as child soloists, who both deliver very powerful performances.

Directed by Carl Olsen, produced by Keith Muir with musical direction by Anthony Cutup and Alison Logie's choreography, The Manly Musical Society has successfully created its own entertaining version of EVITA. The performances on stage are convincing, the singing is outstanding, and the enthusiasm from all actors on stage is contagious from start to finish.

EVITA runs at Manly's Star of the Sea Theatre from Friday 20 November until Saturday 28 November. Tickets can be purchased through Manly Musical Society.
