Jacob Rivera-Sanchez is a Business Manager in the Theatre Department and a 2015 graduate of Texas Wesleyan University. He will be playing Chino in the musical, West Side Story.

Taken from the West Side Story website, “The world’s greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical. Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs: the “American” Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time. From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story’s powerful and poignant story will captivate audiences. This show is suitable for most audiences.”
