Zach Laufer: A ‘Zach’ of all trades


Michael Musciano, Staff Writer

Recently, auditions for the spring musical Children of Eden wrapped up and the lead roles filled; Zach Laufer landed a spot as the Father. The first act is about the creation of Earth, and the second act is about Noah and the ark. Last year, Zach played the role of Patt Denning in 42nd Street. The year before that he played the role of Bob Wallace (Bing Crosby) in White Christmas.

In addition to being involved in the acting department, Laufer is in the Symphonic band and the Marching band. He sings in Top 21, a select group of chorus students that sing the National Anthem at sporting events and graduation. This year, they performed before the Tip-Off Tournament and a swim meet. They will also be singing seasonal songs at the Secret Santa breakfast.

When Laufer is not singing in Top 21, he is singing in his church choir where he serves as the Assistant Director of the youth choir.

Laufer also writes for Hawk Eye as a columnist. His column “Inside the Laufer Room,” which comments on all Pittsburgh sports teams, is a big hit among many readers.

When Laufer is not acting, singing, playing instruments, or writing, he is on the tennis court practicing his serve.

Laufer can also be found at Famous Footwear where he works as a Sales Associate.

Clearly, Zach Laufer is a jack, or shall we say “Zach,” of all trades.
