Threshold Repertory Theatre is celebrating its third season by taking audiences on a figurative world tour.

They’ll kick things off Oct. 8 with Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters, the story of a family in 20th century Russia dealing with life in a small town. The Exact Center of the Universe by Joan Vail Thorne runs Jan. 17-Feb. 10. The New Yorker called it “an amiable comedy about a classic Southern dragon lady mother.” In March, we’ll see Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap, a classic country house murder mystery. In May, Moisés Kaufman’s 33 Variations is the story of a mother and a composer separated by 200 years as they come to terms with different aspects of their lives. Shakespeare at the Rep is the theater’s community summer workshop that runs July 25-Aug. 4 of next year; they’ll be tackling the Bard’s Twelfth Night.

Interspersed throughout the season will be Threshold’s Play with Your Food events, which are interactive lunchtime theater experiences. Guests will hear works from local writers and participate in an open dialogue with playwrights and actors while enjoying food from local restaurants. They’re scheduled for Oct. 24, Jan. 23, and March 20.

Located at 84 ½ Society Street, Threshold has parking for its guests directly behind the building. Subscription packages can be purchased for all five shows at Packages are $40 for students, $50 for seniors, and $70 for adults. Single show tickets are $10 for students, $15 for seniors, and $20 for adults.
