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. Since graduation he has been seen at Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari, The Roxy Regional Theatre, Pickleville Playhouse, Emerald Coast Theatre Company, Six Flags Over Georgia, as well as two national tours! He is so thankful for the opportunities he has been given and is so excited to continue the journey his career has taken him on so far!

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