CHARACTER BREAKDOWN
Eva Perón: Lead -- Vocal range: Mezzo-soprano    Age range: Plays ages 15 through 33
Eva is a beautiful, ambitious and power-seeking woman, who rises to become the spiritual leader of Argentina by the age of 26. She must be able to project both toughness and charisma. She is also a woman of few options, who uses her sexuality to build power. The actor playing this role must be a trained vocalist with strong vocal stamina and excellent control: a legit mezzo with a clear, strong mix that can belt to a high G and sing to a low E (below middle C) who must also be a passionate and strong actor who can move well.

Che: Lead -- Vocal range: Tenor    Age range: 21–35
Che is dashing, impulsive, jealous, and manipulative. He is a political activist (modelled on the actual Argentine-born Cuban guerilla fighter Che Gueverra but according to the authors, he is only supposed to be representative of all activists). Che is the "narrator" and Greek Chorus of the show. He isn’t reluctant to ask tough questions and demand answers. He must be an actor/singer who can move very well with a high, rock tenor voice that can sing a low A to high B, falsetto to high F.

Juan Perón: Lead      Vocal range: Baritone        Age range: 30-50
Juan is an officer in the Argentinean army who rises, driven by his wife Eva, to become the Argentine President. He is a man who is dignified, charming, and authoritative. He should be a strong actor and singer who can play both character and leading roles. Vocal bass/baritone to high F.

Agustin Magaldi: Featured      Vocal range: Teno        Age range: 30-40
Migaldi is a tango singer with whom Eva has her first love affair. He is a charming loser who never quite made it. He has the first big number in the show, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, and sets up the world in which Eva exists by establishing a Latin flavor to the piece, which is essential. He will also appear in the ensemble. He should be able to portray a Latin American “personality” type with a feel that needs to be bigger than life, but real at the same time. Sings high tenor High G.

Perón's Mistress: Featured       Vocal range: Mezzo-soprano       Age range: 16-21
The Mistress is a very beautiful, fragile, vulnerable, innocent young woman who plays Juan Peron’s teenaged Mistress. She is "dismissed” out of Peron’s life by his future wife, Eva. The Mistress ponders the rejection during her featured song, Another Suitcase in Another Hall. She will also appear in the ensemble. She must be able to move well and sing a low A to a high E.

Ensemble:  Vocal range: All ranges        Age range: All ages
For the men, women and children of Argentina, we are seeking a broad range of males and females from late teens to 70s. All must have excellent singing voices in all ranges and must be able to sing in excellent harmony. All must understand the Latin temperament even if they don’t fit into the “look.” The ensemble will double in all other roles from Generals to peasants. Strong movement ability a plus.   The ensemble is featured and utilized throughout the show and is integral to the telling of the story and to making this show a success.  Strong singers and dancers.
