Zach Theatre has become one of the best theater for all — aka children’s theater — programs in Austin. Next season, it will bring some classic stories — “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” and “Goodnight Moon” as well as a newcomer, a bilingual story “The Adventures of Enoughie: A Story of Kindness.” It’s being written by Caroline Reck, who gave us the Cinderella story “Cenicienta,” and is a collaboration between Zach, Reck’s Glass Half Full theater, Teatro Vivo and The Kindness Project. Of course, the Christmas classic “Holiday Heroes” returns as well.
On the regular theater schedule is “Beauty and the Beast” the musical, which families will enjoy as well.
“The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.” For ages 5 and up. Sept. 9-Feb. 4, 2018, Kleberg Stage
“Holiday Heroes.” For ages 3 and up. Dec. 2 and 9, Topfer Stage
“Goodnight Moon.” For ages 3 and up. March 2-May 27, 2018, Kleberg Stage.
“The Adventures of Enoughie: A Story of Kindness.” For ages 3 and up. Spring. Mexican American Cultural Center.
