ZACH Theatre is the home of Merlin Works

Founded in 1933, ZACH Theatre is the oldest continuously operating theatre in Texas and one of ten original resident theatre companies in America.

Today, ZACH Theatre creates a year-round season of more than 500 performances, serving nearly 100,000 Central Texans annually, 30,000 of which are children who participate in our education and outreach programs. ZACH productions span a dynamic range of programming that includes both professional Mainstage plays and musicals, and Theatre for Youth. Located in the heart of Austin on the banks of Lady Bird Lake, ZACH is widely considered “Austin’s Theatre.”

Plenty of free parking is available on Toomey Road by the baseball fields just west of the ZACH campus.
