Evita charts the young and ambitious Eva Peron’s meteoric rise to sainthood. Set in Argentina between 1934-1952, the Tony-winning musical follows Eva Duarte on her journey from poor illegitimate child to ambitious actress to, as wife of military leader-turned-president Juan Peron, the most powerful woman in Latin America, before her death from cancer at age 33.

Everyone loves a good show!
Our summer musicals have included such astounding productions as “Beauty and the Beast” (2016), “Guys and Dolls” (2013), “Into the Woods” (2011) and “The King and I” (1979). Performed in July or August at the Smith Opera house, these shows are almost always the most recognized production on our program and have drawn directors and performers from afar and right down the street.
