THREE'S A PARTY by Justin Santory

This is Mesa Community College Theatre & Film Art's next main production. Three's a Party is a product of The Juntos Project which is a yearlong collaboration between Mesa Community College and Teatro Bravo. The purpose of the Juntos Project is to cultivate a meaningful year-long partnership in a true celebration of Latinx voices and theatre. This is a new work which means we will be working side by side with the Playwright throughout the whole process. The current plan is to begin rehearsals in a virtual setting, while eventually moving into MCC’s facilities following COVID-19 Safety Regulations. This show is intended to be performed as a live theatre performance, but will be recorded and streamed for audience consumption.
