ZACH The­atre cel­e­brates its 85th di­a­mond an­niver­sary.


TRUE GEM As it cel­e­brates its 85th di­a­mond an­niver­sary, ZACH The­atre, the old­est con­tin­u­ously run­ning re­gional the­ater in Texas, con­tin­ues to set the pace in Austin with its tra­di­tion of pro­vid­ing some­thing for ev­ery­one on its three stages, from chil­dren’s shows to crowd-pleas­ing mu­si­cals and ad­ven­tur­ous newer works. The Austin pre­miere of Sin­gin’ in the Rain (Sept. 27-Oct. 29), based on the 1952 film that is among the crown jew­els of Hol­ly­wood’s Golden Age, prom­ises to be a fam­ily-friendly de­light (and yes, it rains on stage!). Stephen Sond­heim’s Sun­day in the Park With George (May 30-June 24, 2018) is a Pulitzer Prize-win­ning work of art about cre­at­ing a work of art. The epic Dis­ney’s Beauty and the Beast (July 11-Sept. 2, 2018) closes the sea­son. Those in­ter­ested in provoca­tive works should check out the Di­rec­tor’s Choice en­try, the Austin pre­miere of The Cu­ri­ous In­ci­dent of the Dog in the Night-Time (Jan. 31-March 4, 2018), win­ner of the 2015 Tony for best new play, and Si­mon Stephens’ Heisen­berg (June 20-July 22, 2018), a Tony nom­i­nee about an un­usual ro­man­tic con­nec­tion. 202 S. La­mar Blvd., 512.476.0541, zachthe­ –Wes Eichen­wald

Dave Steak­ley’s pop­u­lar ren­di­tion of A Christ­mas Carol re­turns Nov. 22-Dec. 31 dur­ing ZACH’s 85th an­niver­sary sea­son.
