Here’s some great news for North Austin families… ZACH Theatre is opening a new ZACH North campus, giving kids ages 3 and up the chance to experience ZACH Theatre’s education program without the hassle of fighting traffic and traveling into downtown Austin. The new facilities are located at 12129 Ranch Road 620N, Austin, TX 78750.

Nat Miller, ZACH Theatre’s Director of Education explains, “Our hope is that by expanding our theatre education offerings into their backyard, and being close to a major corridor that more families from North Austin, Cedar Park, Leander, Round Rock, and Pflugerville are able to be a part of our great programming.”
