Zach Bencal


Zach’s first show with Peacock Players was our 2000 Mainstage production of The Pirates of Penzance. Zach proudly states “Peacock was a staple in my life from the first time I set foot on the stage at Court Street”. Zach’s favorite Peacock Players credits include: The Secret Garden (Colin), Into the Woods (Jack), Aida (Mereb), and The Wizard of Oz (Lion), to name just a few.

Zach graduated from Londonderry High School in 2009, and (subsequently) from The Hartt School of Music in 2013 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre. Upon moving to New York City, Zach continued to hone his skills as a musical theatre performer, and also as a music director/composer – another facet encouraged and nurtured at Peacock Players. Zach musically directed the Off-Broadway production of The Anthem!, and also participated in the BMI Musical Theatre Writers Workshop. Zach has been fortunate enough to work both regionally and internationally as a professional actor. He has been a proud member of Actors Equity Association since 2009.

Zach is currently starring in Disney’s Aladdin on Broadway as “Babkak” after originating the role on the First National Tour. Zach would like to thank Peacock Players and the mentors he was fortunate enough to work with while he was here.
