Topfer Theatre

Your backstage pass for a look behind the curtain at ZACH

The experience of theatre is not only what we see on stage, but also what we don’t see behind the scenes. This contributes to the entertaining, inspiring, and thought-provoking performances we experience in every ZACH production. Join us for a fun evening of dinner, drinks, and live music in celebration of the amazing talent, dedication, and innovation that enliven ZACH’s performances through acting, design, and stage craft.

All funds raised at Backstage benefit ZACH artists and artistic programming.
