Zachary Martin Waters is one of the most creative and hard working students to come through the Belmont University program. He is committed and smart and is a director’s dream to work with.
— Nancy Allen, Coordinator of Belmont Musical Theatre

Zachary Waters has always known that he wanted to perform. If you ask him how, he will gladly tell you the story: "I have known that I wanted to be on stage since I was seven years old, sitting in the orchestra section of the Fabulous Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia. My family went to see Cats, and while everyone else slept or stared at the stage in confusion, I sat enthralled with every movement. I excitedly recounted what had happened to my sister who slept through the show, who promptly replied with, "Cats don't dance and then go to heaven." I didn't care then, and I don't care now - I still want to perform." He made those dreams a reality by attending Belmont University, graduating in May with a BFA in Musical Theatre. In his time at Belmont he participated in shows such as The Addams Family, Oklahoma!, and White Christmas. This summer he was in Santa Claus, Indiana performing at Holiday World in their WOW: World of Wonder show as the Ringmaster, and continued his journey with the company performing in the Halloween show Lights OutThis winter season he was seen at the Roxy Regional Theatre in Clarksville, TN as Curtis in their production of The Happy Elf! He recently finished his first national tour with VStar and Nickelodeon's Paw Patrol Live! Race to the Rescue, and is continuing his journey with the company in the premiere cast of Paw Patrol Live! The Great Pirate Adventure this fall!

When Zach isn't performing you can usually find him crafting, watching Idina Menzel performances, or stalking French Bulldogs on Instagram.
