Full casting has been announced for Regent’s Park Theatre production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita.
Opening on 2 August 2019, Evita is the fastest selling production in the theatre’s history, and two additional matinee performances have been added.
Samantha Pauly will play the role of Eva Perón, Ektor Rivera as Juan Perón, Trent Saunders as Che, Adam Pearce as Agustín Magaldi, and Frances Mayli McCann as 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 Thornton, Jon Tsouras and Rodney Vubya.

From a life of poverty to spiritual leader of the nation, Eva Peron was loved, hated, derided and venerated.
Dividing the Argentinian people with her patriotic speeches, her ambition, glamour and magnetism established ‘Evita’ as the world’s first major political celebrity.
With a chart-topping score including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, Oh What A Circus, Another Suitcase in Another Hall, and the Oscar-winning You Must Love Me, Jamie Lloyd directs Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical.
