ZACH Theatre presents Songs Under the Stars
ZACH Theatre will present a weekly fall concert series, Songs Under the Stars on The People’s Plaza. Employing all necessary health and safety guidelines, ZACH Theatre is ready to welcome patrons back on campus. Although socially distanced pod seating will look different than a traditional show at ZACH, the “Songs Under the Stars” concert series will hold the energy that live performance brings.
