Theatre Bristol announces a new collaboration with River's Way to present an original comedy "Three Times Three" February 25 at the ARTspace, 506 State Street.

Three Times Three is a joyful compilation of fairy tales, jokes, and songs written by Dottie Havlik especially for the special needs teens and young adults with River's Way and veteran Theatre Bristol actors.

Directing this original piece will be Theatre Bristol veteran Dottie Havlik, most recently Theatre Bristol director of The Adventures of Madeline and Charlotte's Web at Theatre Bristol, and long-time actor in many shows including Steel Magnolias and most recently, The Music Man.

"These River's Way kids are so creative, and they're so excited to be acting in a real play in a real theatre," said Havlik. "They're learning true theatre lessons about taking directions, overcoming nervousness, and concentrating on a task. But mostly they're learning that hard work can be fun and rewarding."

River's Way, lead by Executive Director Tom Hanlon, is an organization dedicated to the positive and productive involvement of young people with disabilities in our community.

"Three Times Three" will have two showings on Saturday, February 25 at 10:30 am and 5:30 pm. Tickets are $5 and will be available at the door 30 minutes prior to showtime. Seating is general admission and for any special accommodations, please call or email the Theatre. Show information is also available online at www.TheatreBristol.org or by calling the message line at 423-212-3625.
