Zak Edwards was born and raised outside of Denver, where his musical theatre loving parents encouraged him to start singing and playing the piano at a young age. He lived in the same house, performing every chance he got, until he left Denver to attend the University of Oklahoma. There, he earned a BFA in Musical Theatre Performance, and graduated at the top of his class, receiving the F. Donald Clark Award for Excellence, an honor given to one student in the College of Fine Arts every year for academic and artistic achievement.
Since moving to New York, Zak has performed Off Broadway, with New York City Opera, at City Center Encores, on first national tours, and at countless regional houses including Sacramento Music Circus, Goodspeed Opera House, North Shore Music Theatre, Maine State Music Theatre, Riverside Theatre, The Arvada Center, and many others. He still plays the piano (though mostly as a hobby), is a slightly ashamed reality competition show lover, and a completely unashamed math enthusiast.
