About Zeiders American Dream Theater
Zeiders American Dream Theater is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization founded on the belief that creativity and creative experiences are fundamental to an individual’s and community’s development.

Zeiders American Dream Theater, known as The Z, is a professional, non-profit performing arts company whose mission is to provide a wide range of highly entertaining artistic experiences to the community by fostering and introducing new works and exceptionally gifted artists in all areas of the performing arts. The Z is a community hub for celebrating creative growth and entertainment. With intimate performance spaces and unique programming that generates an exciting connection between the performer and the audience, The Z inspires audiences and performers to tap into their own creative spark, unleash their dreams, and achieve their full potential.

The Z is gearing up for the opening of our permanent home in the center of Town Center in October of 2018.  This 17,000 sf facility will include a 310-seat Main Stage and black box Studio Theater, audio recording studio, lobbies, and offices.  Both theaters will provide an intimate setting that creates an exciting connection between the performer and the audience.  The facility, which is being built entirely with Zeiders American Dream Theater funds, is part of a public private project that includes retail stores, a restaurant, apartments, a public plaza, a monumental staircase, and a bridge to a free public parking garage.  

In the interim, The Z operates from an 1,800 square foot temporary cabaret-style theater in Town Center, which seats approximately 70 patrons. Programming began in this space in October of 2015 and will continue with weekly events through June 2018, when the move to the permanent home begins.
