Community Impact

In addition, ZACH is primed to host private and community events across the beautiful rental-ready spaces on our three-stage campus located in the heart of Austin along Lady Bird Lake. A non-profit organization, ZACH creates arts experiences that entertain, inspire, and engage the community. As Austin’s leading professional producing theatre, ZACH employs more than 300 actors, musicians, and designers annually to create its own diverse array of nationally recognized plays and musicals under the leadership of Producing Artistic Director Dave Steakley and Managing Director Elisbeth Challener.
