We have been granted the rights to perform Andrew Lloyd Webbers Monumental masterpiece that is... EVITA!!!

We are bursting with excitement about this production and can't wait to get started, with plans in place already!

The show will run from the 22nd - 25th March 2017 in The Great Hall, Downshire Estate!

Auditions will be taking place on Sunday 26th June 2016, in The Parish Hall, Downpatrick with rehearsals commencing on Monday 5th September! - Please note main cast is restricted to ages 16+

If you know the show, you will know that it is no easy task and requires a substantial ensemble, and we therefore invite members old and new to come join us for this amazing journey to Argentina!   Evita is a particularly male heavy show and so we are particularly interested in hearing from males!
