Forever Plaid
By Stuart Ross
Directed by Dave Steakley
November 1 – December 31

You asked for it and here it is. The return of Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Franky — that fabulous foursome in the tradition of The Four Freshmen and The Hi-Lo’s. You remember the Plaids, that glorious guy group from the 50’s who almost made it in the Ed Sullivan Show but were sent heavenward when their bus was broadside by a busload of Catholic School girls. And now, wow, they’re back! To perform their once-in-an-afterlifetime comeback. Forever Plaid will transport you to prom heaven. New! Forever Plaid will play in repertory with The Taffetas. So, it will be possible to see both shows on the same weekend! Plan now for out-of-town guests!


Rockin Christmas Party
Created and Directed by Dave Steakley
December 12 – 28, 1997

Rock around the Christmas Tree with ZACH’s award-winning cast of Beehive and their favorite fellas in ZACH’s critically acclaimed revue of rock, soul and holiday hits from the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s. Winner of the Austin Critics’ Table Award for "Best Musical" Rockin Christmas Party annually plays to packed houses, so it is best to order tickets early. Staged at The Paramount Theatre.


Schoolhouse Rock Live!
By Scott Ferguson, Kyle Hall and George Keating
November 22 – December 31, 1997

Music & Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens (Once on This Island), Bob Dorough, Dave Frishberg, Kathy Mandry, George Newall & Tom Yohe. "Conjunction Junction, what’s your function?" If you don’t recognize that lyric then you weren’t camped out in front of your TV every Saturday morning between 1973 to 1985. The catchy, jazzy tunes from Schoolhouse Rock taught millions of us the amazing fundamentals of math, grammar, science, and history. And now, live-on-stage, you’ll remember….the first time you learned how a bill becomes law in "I’m Just a Bill on Capitol Hill"…the names of the planets of our solar system in "Interplanet Janet"…that a "noun is a person, place or thing"…and all the words to "The Preamble". So "unpack your adjectives" and pack up the kids and head to ZACH for Schoolhouse Rock where no one’s too cool for school! A nostalgic blast for adults–a fast-paced, musical treat for young audiences!
