With the hot weather making its presence known, it’s never been a better time to start planning your theatre trips for the summer. And why miss out on the good weather while you’re enjoying a show?

The Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is putting on several productions this summer, including the legendary Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Evita. And as rehearsals get underway for the show, the full Evita casting has been announced.

Adam Pearce will play Agustín Magaldi. Adam has previously been in World Premiere of Local Hero,  Sunset Boulevard (UK Tour) and The Light Princess (National Theatre).

He will be joining the already announced casting of Samantha Pauly (Eva Perón), Ektor Rivera (Juan Perón), Trent Saunders (Che) and Frances Mayli McCann (The Mistress).

The cast also includes:

  • Alexander Barria
  • Felipe Bejarano
  • Alex Cardall
  • Russell Dickson
  • Lauren Drew,
  • Hannah Fairclough
  • Chris Fung
  • Chlöe Hart,
  • Travis Kerry
  • Jessica Lee
  • Dale Mathurin
  • Peter Nash
  • Sarah Naudi
  • Mireia Mambo
  • Marsha Songcome
  • Bree Smith
  • Monica Swayne
  • Oliver Tester
  • Amy Thornto
  •  Jon Tsouras
  • Rodney Vubya.

Four children will alternate at each performance: Saffia Layla, Ava Masters, Chanai Owusu-Ansah and Ellicia Simondwood.

Tickets are already on general sale, but proved to be so popular that it became the fastest selling production in the Regent’s Park Theatre’s history. So if you missed out on tickets, you’ll be pleased to hear that an additional two matinee performances have been added on 21 and 28 August.

Directed by Jamie Lloyd, Evita tells the real-life story of Eva Perón, the second wife of Argentine president Juan Perón. A political leader in her own right, Evita follows her journey from her early life and charity work, to her rise to power.

The musical features a chart-topping score including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, Oh! What A Circus, Another Suitcase in Another Hall, and the Academy Award-winning You Must Love Me.

Evita is running from 2 – 28 August. Other productions in the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre season includes A Midsummer Night’s Dream (28 June – 27 July) and Jesus Christ Superstar (playing a limited 60-performance season at the Barbican Theatre from 4 July).
