THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW
By Richard O’Brien
Directed by Jeffrey Schmidt with Musical Direction by (TBD)
T3 owns the Halloween season with this cult classic--a deliberately kitschy rock 'n' roll sci-fi gothic musical!

As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including the mad Dr.’s latest creation: the perfect specimen of a man, Rocky. Dress for the Time Warp If You Dare!

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS
Adapted by Ken Ludwig, based on the novel by Agatha Christie
Directed by Emily Scott Banks
The exotic Orient Express is about to go off the rails! With a luxury locomotive full of suspects (speaking in a host of over-the-top European accents) and an alibi for each one, it’s the perfect mystery for detective Hercule Poirot, n’est-ce pas? Wax your mustache and hold on to your passport—from Agatha Christie’s masterpiece comes this slick and comic adaptation by Ken Ludwig! A glittering entertainment that takes you on an exotic, daring ride aboard the legendary Orient Express! A Funny, Suspenseful, Fast-Paced Thrill Ride
Run Dates: November 27- December 20, 2020
Written and Directed by Regina Taylor, Musical Direction by (TBD)
As one of Dallas’ most accomplished theatrical exports, Regina Taylor is known for her luscious, ripe language and exhilarating poetry. With a background beat of be-bop, she combines realism with lilting lyricism to tell the tale of Gin Del Sol, a young saxophone player who joins an all-black, female jazz quartet. Set in the post-war era, Taylor’s tribute to the ladies of jazz chronicles the struggles of musicians trying to make sweet music over the intrusive societal noise of pervasive sexism and racism. Powerful! Eclectic! A Jazz Lover’s Experience!
Run Dates: February 11- March 14, 2021
Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
by Edward Albee
Directed by Jeffrey Schmidt
Albee’s 1962 masterpiece, an escalating, perversely erotic dance of booze, anger and resentment, remains as relevant as the day it was written. Late one evening, after an alcohol-fueled university faculty party, a middle-aged couple, Martha and George, receive an unwitting younger couple, Nick and Honey, as late evening guests. They draw them into their bitter and frustrated marital love-hate ambivalence and pummel each other senseless in a verbal slugfest. Grotesque games-playing until dawn is ultimately uplifting and cathartic as illusions are shed and the bitter truth comes to light. Intensity. Darkness. Complexity. Ambiguity.
Run Dates: April 8- May 2, 2021
Meredith Willson’s The Music Man
Book, Music and Lyrics by Meredith Willson
Based on a story by Meredith Willson and Franklin Lacey
Directed by Joel Ferrell with Musical Direction by Vonda Bowling
One of the most cherished American classics, The Music Man, merrily marches onto the T3 stage! Called “one of the sunniest musicals ever” by the New York Times, this family-friendly story should be joyfully shared with every generation. This is a timeless story of the fast-talking salesman, Harold Hill, who cons the good folks of River City, Iowa, into believing that he can teach their children to play in a marching band. Before the fraudulent teacher can skip town with the loot, Harold’s got trouble when he falls for the quick-witted, not to mention beautiful, small town librarian, Marian. A slice of Americana you won’t want to miss!
Run Dates: (4/8/2021-5/2/2021)
The Bippy Boppy Boo Show
A Co-Production with Danielle Georgiou Dance Group
Written and directed by Danielle Georgiou
Dazzling with glitz and glamour of a 1960s musical variety show, THE BIPPY BOBBY BOO SHOW returns to Theater Too, the delightful downstairs space at Theatre Three Dallas. Bippy Bobby, the crooning, cocktail-toting ne’er-do-well, hosts this late-night limited engagement featuring performances by the six ghosts living in the belly of the uptown basement. Inspired by the plays they saw performed by Norma Young, Esther Ragland, Robert Dracup, and Jac Alder, the ghosts of Theater Too bring the works of Pirandello, Pinter, Albee, and Beckett into their acts. Come on down to the Boo Show Lounge, and enjoy the music, dance, and hilarity of this fall’s swankiest night of theater! A haunted holiday experience!
Murder on the Polar Express – A Sketch Comedy Show
A Co-Production with Bootstraps Comedy Theatre
Written and directed by Matt Lyle
Death. Mayhem. Fear. Mirth. Joy. And cute little outfits. The holidays can be downright terrifying. Matt Lyle and the sketch comedy hooligans at Bootstraps Comedy Theater will face that fear for you and celebrate the courage and resiliency of the human spirit. Or they will literally die trying.

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.
