I am trying to get the tweens to execute one after the other. Only the first tween is executing, I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.Any ideas.

1) I have named the instance 'rectangle'


import fl.transitions.easing.*;
import fl.transitions.Tween;
import fl.transitions.TweenEvent;

var twFade : Tween;
var twStretch : Tween;
var twEnlarge : Tween;
twFade = new Tween(rectangle,"alpha",Strong.easeOut,1,0,3,true);

function mynext1(e : TweenEvent):void {

	twStretch = new Tween(rectangle,"x",None.easeOut,0,100,3,true);

function mynext2(e : TweenEvent):void{

	twEnlarge = new Tween(rectangle,"height",Strong.easeOut,rectangle.height,rectangle.height+100,3,true);

Hey Ben.
Your code works - but you probably can't see it happening because in the first tween you've made your rectangle invisible.
to prove it just change the first alpha to

twFade = new Tween(rectangle,"alpha",Strong.easeOut,1,0.5,3,true);

instead of

twFade = new Tween(rectangle,"alpha",Strong.easeOut,1,0,3,true);

ie. change alpha from 1 to 0.5 instead of 1 to 0
