We absolutely love having you at The Z. Currently we can't exactly do that, but we can still find ways to be creative and socially distant at the same time. Let's virtually hangout and do what we do best. These new online programs focus on supporting local artists and maintaining community connections while we have to remain physically apart.


We know everyone is feeling the challenges of the day. There is no gift too small that won't make a BIG difference in keeping The Z working for all of us, as a community-minded, non profit theater dedicated to new & emerging works & artists. We are all relying on each other right now. Our remote programming is our way of showing we are here for you, please let us know you are here for us by making a donation today.
