From ZACH Employees: We are the ZACH!

Zach Topfer Theatre
The production crew at ZACH Theatre creates high quality productions, staging Broadway-style musicals and socially evocative plays. We enthusiastically contribute our labor on collaborative efforts and artistic projects that we are passionate about. We make Mary Poppins fly; we drive forward the automated Governor’s office in Ann; we light the rock concert that makes The Who’s Tommy larger than life; we build the monumental scenery in All the Way: the LBJ Play; we project the subtitles in Tribes, so that hearing and non-hearing patrons can enjoy theatre together; we dress the iconic talent in Sophisticated Ladies in breathtaking costumes. We introduce local children and their families to the literary gifts of a young Cenicienta, the unselfish kindness of James & the Giant Peach, the pride in bilingual literacy of Tomas & the Library Lady, and the adventurous yearning of Alice & Wonderland. These works are presented to schoolchildren in our community who may not otherwise be exposed to theatre of ZACH’s caliber. The work we produce is hard-hitting, creative, important, impactful, and fulfilling, and we are proud to make a difference in the lives of Austin kids, parents, and community members.

We love what we do, and we want to keep doing it, but many of us recognize the need for some changes that will greatly impact our lives. We need to make a living wage and want some job security. We deserve fair treatment and a civil disciplinary process. We deserve wage parity for men and women. We deserve to be treated with respect because we are dedicated, hard-working employees living in a progressive and competitive city. Unfortunately, Zach Management has failed to address our concerns so we are seeking help from the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), Local 205, so that we may work together to finally achieve these ends. To find out more about our campaign for Union representation, explore the links below. We will update these pages as our story continues to unfold.
