The iconic story of Evita, starring Marti Pellow as Che, is currently on tour and there are two chances to see it locally.

The show tells the story of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, following her journey from humble beginnings through to extraordinary wealth, power and iconic status.

First stop for the show, which features Don’t Cry For Me Argentina and Another Suitcase in Another Hall, is the Wycombe Swan from May 27 - 31 and then in July it comes to the Waterside.

Former Wet Wet Wet frontman Marti Pellow has enjoyed over 25 hits and three of the UK’s biggest number one singles, including the seminal Love Is All Around. He has also starred in many West End musicals. Tickets for the Swan cost from £23, box office 01494 512000.
