Way Off Broadway Dinner Theatre Set to Hold Auditions for Its 2009 Season-Opener Evita

Frederick, MD- Way Off Broadway, the area's only year-round professional dinner theatre, will be kicking off its 15th Anniversary Season with Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita. When the show opens in January of 2009, it will have been over twenty years since Evita was last performed in Frederick.
Argentina's controversial former First Lady is at the center of this dynamic musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president's mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three. Eva Peron "saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military" was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Her life story, coming from nothing to being the most influential and revered woman in South America, makes for one of the most powerful musicals ever to find its way to the stage.
Auditions for Way Off Broadway's production of Evita will be held on Monday, October 20th at the theatre beginning at 7:00pm. No appointments are necessary.
Those auditioning should be at least 18 years old, have a headshot and resume, as well as, 16 bars of prepared music, and be ready to sing, read from the script, and dance (for certain roles). All roles are open and non-union paying.
Way Off Broadway's production of Evita will be directed by Bill Kiska with choreography by Amanda Parker and musical direction by Eric Seebach. The show will run January 16-March 15, 2009, with performances every Friday and Saturday evening, matinees on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sunday of each month, and evening performances on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month.
For questions or specific casting information, visit or call the theatre at 301-662-6600.
