 Red, Hot & Soul

Saturday in the Park with ZACH

An imaginative Parisian evening honoring Bill Dickson and Schlotzsky’s
Benefiting ZACH Theatre’s education programs

Cocktails | Dinner | Entertainment | Auction | Moulin Rouge After Party

Red, Hot & Soul – Saturday in the Park with ZACH is inspired by ZACH’s 2018 summer musical Sunday in the Park with George. Stephen Sondheim’s Pulitzer Prize-winning musical masterpiece is a living painting by artist Georges Seurat, and centers on the artist as he discovers unimaginable possibilities while creating an enduring work of art. Pop up your parasol and don your top hat for this dazzling Parisian affair!

The funds raised at Red, Hot & Soul impact ZACH’s educational programming including Theatre for Families, ZACH’s Pre-Professional Company, College Bound Conservatory, Arts Across the Curriculum, Sensory Friendly Performances, and our SAFE partnership. ZACH’s education programs reach over 55,000 children and students annually, welcoming all of Austin’s children and schools to attend performances, classes, and summer camps, even if they can’t afford tickets or tuition.
