ZACH Theatre Postpones Spring Musical, Gala, And Summer Camps

Article Pixel

ZACH Theatre announces additional postponements in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis. Spring classes and summer camps move online for the time being.

ZACH's Spring musical, Reunion '85, which was scheduled to begin May 27 has been postponed to the 2020-21 season. Additionally, Summer Camps have been canceled until June 29th, and ZACH's annual gala Red, Hot & Soul, has been rescheduled for September 26, 2020 (previously May 2). The Sound of Music, which begins performances July 15, is still scheduled as planned.

From Producing Artistic Director Dave Steakley regarding season changes and looking to the future:

"Reunion '85 is a highly interactive experience which would not be responsible for us to produce in these times. We look forward to bringing this fun, new musical to Austin next season when we can raise a glass together and shake it on the dance floor. The health and safety of our audiences, staff, and artists is our first priority. We will continue to follow city and state guidelines to make the best decisions possible to protect the well-being of our community."

The revised 2020-21 season will be announced in full in the coming months. Find more information and updated cancellation notices at zachtheatre.org/healthandsafety.
