      HIGHWAY 47 - a new play presented by Frontera Rep

      Local favorite Rebecca Rivas headlines this autobiographical tour de force by playwright KJ Sanchez, co-writer of REENTRY, which was produced by Frontera Rep in 2012. Sanchez grew up the youngest of twelve children in the high desert town of Tomé, New Mexico. A fun and wild ride, this is a story about family, community, and the “importance of place,” HIGHWAY 47 has a bit of everything — comedy, drama, music, dancing, and cutting edge new media. KJ Sanchez’s plays have been produced at Asolo Rep, Actors Theater of Louisville, Two River Theater, Baltimore’s CENTERSTAGE, Round House Theater, Working Classroom, Cornerstone and Off-Broadway at Urban Stages. A noted director and actress, Sanchez is the voice of many characters in the cartoons DORA THE EXPLORER and GO DIEGO GO. Sanchez is a Fox Fellow, the 2012 Douglas Wollop Fellow, an Albert Award Nominee and an NEA CDP for directors recipient.

      Actress Rebecca Rivas most recently graced Frontera Rep’s stages as ‘Sara Lea’ in TOM LEA: GRACE NOTE IN A HARD WORLD. Her past stage credits include featured roles in Arkansas Rep’s New Play Festival and the role of ‘Carly’ in Theatre Squared’s production of REASONS TO BE PRETTY.
