Hello Three River-ites,

In this letter, we're letting you know about two exciting events that are coming up, there's a call-out for memorabilia and we also have some membership information for you...

Three River is once again hosting Theatre Drinks this Friday, 21 October.  As always, this will be a terrific evening of drinks and nibbles, and a great chance to catch up with friends and colleagues from around the Launceston theatre scene.  We hope to see you there!
Fri 21 Oct, 6pm - 7:30pm
Upstairs Foyer of the Princess Theatre


LAST CHANCE TEXACO by Peter Maloney. Drama.

Directed by Jonathan Pedler. Featuring Tia Landeg, Caitlyn Stirling, and Amanda Dawes.


Peter Maloney’s Last Chance Texaco is a haunting, lyrical play set in a rundown gas station run by a mother and daughter in a small Texas town in the buckle of the Bible Belt, where white trash and religion are not strange bedfellows.

 Late one night in central East Texas, a dispirited New York sophisticate way out of her element has a flat tyre in the middle of nowhere and barely makes it into Cissy’s run-down service station.  As the tyre gets patched they begin to share about their lives, but the vibe shifts dramatically with the entrance of Verna, a dishevelled harridan with a mean fundamentalist streak who eyes strangers with suspicion and minces no words in expressing her moral outrage.

 Presented together with


MONEY TALKS by Jason Milligan. Comedy.

Directed by Tia Landeg. Featuring Amanda Dawes, Jonathan Pedler and Caitlyn Stirling.


Thanks to a well meaning mutual friend, sophisticated Yolanda has a blind date with dowdy City budget planner Clark.

Their meeting in a downtown pub begins pleasantly enough, but turns into the blind date from hell when Yolanda is forced to fight for her dignity and her sanity.

Nachos & beer will never taste the same!


The evening will also serve as this year's Nearly End of Year celebration.  And what a year it's been, with 7 fantastic plays brought to life through our playreading series, some great social functions and, of course, Twelve Angry Men.

So, if you're up for some excellent readings and great company, we'd love to see you there! 

Thu 17 Nov, 7:30pm
Maggie's Place, 34 Paterson St, Launceston

Nibbles provided and refreshments available by donation.
It doesn't seem like a month has gone past since our production of Twelve Angry Men.

With six super well-attended public performances and a massive schools show, we couldn't have been happier with the turnout to this quintessential piece of theatre. 

Thank you for your support for our company and the theatre we make!
As part of an ongoing project to flesh out our story, we're on the hunt for programs, tickets, posters, clippings and stories from the Rep's 60+ year history.  Particularly anything you (or your theatre loving relative/friend/neighbour) may have from the 70's and 80's.  Drop us a line if you have any hot leads!


Three River Memberships are now open for next year and we'd love you to be a part of our plans!

We've got some crackerjack ideas lined up for 2017 - and there's no better way to keep informed and to get involved!
