Evita Theatre Outing
On November 5th, several couples from the Applewood Probus Club travelled to Cambridge to see Drayton Theatre's production of "Evita". Prior to this event, arrangements were made to meet for lunch at the Evo Kitchen and Bar restaurant, just a few minutes walk from the theatre. We had 30 people attend the show, and most of that group were able to gather for a tasty lunch of salads, sandwiches, wraps or the trendy fish taco platter.
With appetites satiated, we were able to sit back and enjoy this Tony award winning operetta by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. The story charts the meteoric rise of Argentina's infamous Eva Peron, affectionately known as Evita. "Evita" is well known for its recognized musical numbers such as "Don't Cry For Me Argentina", "Buenos Aires" and "Another Suitcase in Another Hall". Once again, Drayton Entertainment did not disappoint! This was a polished production of a challenging musical and kudos must be given to the cast who were clearly accomplished at their craft.
All in all, this outing proved to be another great theatre day for Applewood Probus. See you next time!
