It Came from Theatre Three

Conceived by Christie Vela & Jeffrey Schmidt

Join our two haunted hosts for an evening of old school scary fun featuring short plays written by Dallas playwrights, commissioned by and filmed at our very own Theatre Three and presented in a story anthology format.

The plays featured include:

The Loss of Jane

by Nicole Neely

Inspired by Charlotte Perkin Gilman's short story, The Yellow Wallpaper, The Loss of Jane is a post-WW2 story about a woman who seeks to defy expectation without knowing quite how.

Doctor Diablo

by Blake Hackler

Marla is on a mission to get THE toy of the season for her grandson. Nothing can stop her, not even a pandemic.

The Old Woman in the Wood

Adapted by Jeffrey Schmidt in collaboration with The Drama Club

Inspired by the Grimms Fairy Tale of the same name and The Juniper Tree, The Old Woman in the Wood is a dark story filled with puppets, trash and puppets made of trash! When a young servant girl runs from a murderous scene, she is left to the mercy of the forest and all who live within.

Bloody Mary

by Jonathan Norton

Back in the late Roman Empire, a young woman goes on a bloody rampage, enacting gruesome revenge to avenge her beloved. And like any good slasher film, that's really all we need to set us on an unbridled and unapologetic gore-fest!

The ghosts of Theatre Three are back!! Coming this October, spend an evening, or 6, with a new live show each night! That's right! In true DGDG fashion, they are pushing boundaries and challenging the notions of theatre and dance by creating a theatrical mini-series event, with 6 brand-new plays (or episodes)! Commemorating the scariest year ever, THE BIPPY BOBBY BOO: 2020 CALL-IN SPECIAL will be full of glitz, gags, and glamorous ghosts! After spending a glorious run with live audiences, the ghosts have become stir-crazy in the theatre without a show going on! Instead of waiting for audiences to return in person, the ghosts will be haunting the internet with this live-streamed interactive event! Get to know the ghosts in a whole new way and participate in the show from your home by calling in and donation your "boos" to the special Boo-Meter! Got a joke for Bippy Bobby? Call in and hear your voice on your TV! Want to give Bippy a piece of your mind? Ring the Halloween hotline and howl! Get your tickets for this wild internet extravaganza and come join in the fun! Bonus: Bippy will be hosting an Election Day special that you don't want to miss!
