Zach Brown earned both a Master of Letters and a Master of Fine Arts in Shakespeare and Performance from Mary Baldwin College in 2011 and 2012, respectively, and graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a Bachelor of Arts in English from Colorado State University in 2007. Directing credits include Hamlet (MFA production) at MBC, Macbeth and Ionesco’s Macbett (for which he did the translation) in 2012 and 2011, respectively, at Stuart Hall School in Staunton, Virginia. He has had Linklater voice training from Tina Packer, in addition to acting in her production of Pericles at MBC in 2010. Other acting credits include Baptista in Taming of the Shrew (directed by Rob Clare) at MBC, Nym/Gloucester in Henry V at the American Shakespeare Center (directed by Ralph Alan Cohen), Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet at MBC, Enobarbus in Antony and Cleopatra with Richmond Shakespeare Festival, Lucky in Waiting for Godot at CSU, and Trigorin in The Seagull, also at CSU (directed by Walt Jones). He is an experienced writer, director, actor, coach, stage-combatant, musician, and cheerfully off-key singer. Born in Colorado, Zach is grateful to return to his hometown and is fairly bristling with eagerness to share some of the state-of-the-art Shakespeare scholarship and stage-craft that he has acquired in his travels.
