2022-2023 Season Information
Big Scary Animals
by Matt Lyle
Directed by Becki McDonald
An older white couple from the country moves to the city to be closer to their granddaughter and unknowingly settles in the gay neighborhood. What begins as polite dinner conversation with their gay, multi-ethnic neighbors careens out of control. Returning to Theatre Three after a critically-acclaimed run in Theatre Too in 2017, “Big, Scary Animals” is a hilarious collision of race, sex, guns, and sports that examines shifting generational beliefs and just how hard it is to raise a child regardless of who you are and where you live. A hilarious, dark comedy.
Run Dates: September 1-25, 2022

From the creators of the Broadway sensation “The Producers” comes the monstrously fun musical, Young Frankenstein. When the grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein, inherits his family’s estate, his mad scientist genes come to fruition! With the help of his assistant, Igor, he brings a monster to life and hilarity ensues. With memorable tunes like "The Transylvania Mania," "Don’t Touch Me" and "Puttin' on the Ritz," Young Frankenstein is an electrifyingly good time.
Puttin’ on the Ritz in Transylvania!

The Elephant Man
Written by Bernard Pomerance
Directed by Jeffrey Schmidt
John Merrick, an intelligent and friendly man shunned by Victorian-era society and called a “freak” due to his skin and bone disorders is found abandoned. Under the care of physician Frederick Treves, Merrick begins to slowly evolve from an object of pity to an urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati, only to be denied his ultimate dream – to become a man like any other. A biographical drama.

The Butterfly’s Evil Spell
Written by Federico García Lorca
Translated and Adapted by Dante Flores
Directed by Jeffrey Schmidt
In a whimsical world of beetles, scorpions, and bugs of all sorts, a beetle falls in love with an injured butterfly. An "insect comedy" written in verse, “The Butterfly’s Evil Spell” is a story about unrequited love in a “green and humble meadow” covered in dewdrops and dripping in poetry.
A fantastical, tragic love story.
Run Dates: April 6-April 30, 2023
Next to Normal
Book & Lyrics by Brian Yorkey
Music by Tom Kitt
Directed by Christie Vela
Music Directed by Vonda K. Bowling
The Goodman family is just a “normal” family: Dad's an architect, mom packs lunches and makes birthday cakes, and their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens. Under the surface, their family is anything but. “Next to Normal” explores a family’s raw and emotional journey with a mother struggling with chronic bipolar disorder as they navigate a world of therapists and medication.
An emotionally charged Tony-Award winning musical!
Run Dates: June 1-July 2, 2023

New Works Initiative
Why new plays and not just classics? Classics can give us perspective. We can evaluate the present from a distance. New plays give us context. Who better to speak for us than our peers? Together, new plays and classics fulfill T3’s mission to illuminate the human experience. Who knows? Years from now, maybe a play developed right here at T3, perhaps by a Dallas playwright, will offer perspective to a future audience.
