First impressions are everything.

This season is the groundwork for my relationship with you -- our patrons, artists, and donors. I want to let you know who I am, what I’m about and where I see the theatre heading in the future. I want to strike a balance between innovative challenging work and classic American theater. I want good juicy roles for actors to sink their teeth into. My aesthetic has always incorporated inventive design, so I want to have exciting opportunities for designers as well. New work development by local writers and companies is also part of the equation. T3 will never be avant-garde, but it can be innovative and relevant. Good writing? Of course. Relevance? Definitely. Classics? Yes. Provocative? Please. Campy and cheesy? Not really, but there are always exceptions to the rule!

THE MINOTAUR
by Anna Ziegler
Directed by Jeffrey Schmidt

Who controls your life’s narrative? Just because the chorus says “That is how things should be.”, does that mean you must abide it? A present-day version of a classic Greek myth, The Minotaur is a contemporary take on love, honor, and human connection. With refreshing originality and wit, it explores how we break out of history to shape new stories for ourselves.
ADDING MACHINE
Music by Joshua Schmidt
Lyrics by Jason Loewith and Joshua Schmidt
From the play by Elmer Rice
Directed by Blake Hackler

This musical adaptation of Elmer Rice's incendiary 1923 play tells the story of Mr. Zero, who after 25 years of service to his company is replaced by a mechanical adding machine. In a vengeful rage, he murders his boss. An eclectic score gives passionate and memorable voice to this stylish and stylized show, as Zero is met with one last chance for romance and redemption.

DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE
Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher
Directed by Christie Vela

On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll's experiments with exotic "powders and tinctures" have brought forth his other self—Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. In this new and exciting adaptation, the many facets of Hyde’s personality are portrayed by different members of the cast.
SHE KILLS MONSTERS
by Qui Nguyen
Directed by Jeffrey Schmidt

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture. 
THE LAST ONE NIGHTER ON THE DEATH TRAIL STARRING THE DISAPPOINTMENT PLAYERS
Book by Christie Vela and David Goodwin
Songs by Our Endeavors Theater Collective
Directed by Matthew Earnest

In this fun and raucous story, a troupe of vaudevillians in the early ‘30s wait behind a theater in Dallas for their opportunity to go on stage. It questions what is and isn’t art and why it is necessary. Watch out, though. It’s the prohibition era in the bible belt and the cops are cracking down on all unseemly behavior!
LES LIAISONS DANGEREUSES
by Christopher Hampton
Directed by Tiffany Nichole Greene

You may know it as Dangerous Liasons, the title of the film adaptation. A tale of seduction set in France among aristocrats before the revolution, this is a classic drama for exploring decadent sexuality, morals and manipulation played as the ultimate game with tragic results. Christopher Hampton adapted the play from the 1782 novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos and was nominated for a Tony in 1987.
