BROADWAY HOPEFUL JEN ANAYA VISITS WICKENBURG
Fresh off a part in the off-Broadway show "Angel", Jennifer Anaya will be coming home to Wickenburg for a few days to visit her parents and sing with Max Borjon's band, Jazz for Fun, at a fundraiser for the Wickenburg Cultural Organization.
Jen grew up in the small agricultural town of Aguila, 25 miles from Wickenburg. Her exceptional musical ability and drive caught the eye of the WCO who encouraged her talent for ten years with lessons, music camp and scholarship help through four years at ASU School of Music.
She graduated from ASU, married her high school sweetheart, Adam Clark, and moved to New York two years ago. Since then she has played in a musical at the Duke Theatre On 42nd, was featured in an independent movie, An Immigrant's Tale, and is soon to co-star in Alan Tacle's new film Dark Rites. She is up for a role in Casa Blue, a story about Frieda Kahlo and a part in the New Jersey Repertory Theatre's Bookends.
To make ends meet, Jen has worked two 4-month stints with Martha Stewart Living and fills in there regularly. Through her job at "Sur La Table" in Soho, she has met Elijah Wood, Stanley Tucci, John Leguizamo, Holly Hunter and John Mayer.
Wickenburg looks forward to Jen's visit. You can meet her and hear her sing at the WCO dinner-dance fundraiser "All That Jazz" on April 13 at Rancho de Los Caballeros in Wickenburg. Jen says "I promise I'll sing my heart out in thanks for what you're going to do for the next kid with a dream."
