Five people who might not otherwise meet take a six-week acting class in Annie Baker’s CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION, where the theatre games they play transform their perspectives, their relationships, and the course of their lives.

“…orchestrated with a subtlety and unfailing naturalness that make the play’s small revelations disarming and unexpected. The characterizations display a miniaturist attention to detail that goes down to the bone…Baker is never blind to their weaknesses and faults, yet regards them all with a warm, empathetic eye.” —Variety

Performances will occur at the Slate Theater, August 9-25 for a total of 13 performances. Most rehearsals will occur at either the Slate or TPS as possible.


Other details:
If you are unable to make an appointment, you are welcome to drop by and audition or inquire about alternate timing if required.


Character Breakdown / Project Needs
Marty - The teacher of the acting class. Emotionally aware, empathic, and artistically engaged, having forged a creative life in this small town, teaching jewelry-making and pottery along with drama. Fairly self-possessed, carries a position of authority well. Married, mostly happily, to James, a economics professor with Marxist leanings. Referred to as 55 years old and uses she/her pronouns; should be age-appropriate to a 60-year old husband.

Schultz - Recently divorced, still wearing a wedding ring. The sort of person who describes a sad condo as “very-corporate feeling.” A carpenter, finding both the art and the craft in that. Perhaps better at processing other people’s feelings than expressing their own. Has a brief relationship with Theresa; must be comfortable with on-stage kissing. Referred to as 48 years old and uses he/him pronouns; looking to cast a bit younger than that, perhaps late 30s.

Lauren - A rising high school junior. Wants more from the class than just acting exercises, which feel a bit unfulling or at least unapplied. Wants to play Maria in “West Side Story.” Not the stereotypical disengaged teenager of pop culture; likelier seeking a level of engagement and expression not found in day-to-day life. A future child of divorce. Will move away from this small town. Referred to as 16 years old and uses she/her pronouns; looking for an actor 18 or older to play high school age.

We are committed to casting performers of any race and gender and strongly encourage all who feel a connection to one of these roles to audition.

The roles of James and Theresa have already been cast.

Audition/Interview Dates:
Saturday, June 15, 11:00AM-2:00 PM

Audition Requirements:
Prepare a monologue. Contemporary is great, but your comfort and familiarity are paramount; we’ll want to see how you can take direction and adjust, radically or minutely, your approach to what you’ve prepared.
We may also cold-read some sides.

Monetary compensation:
Each actor will receive a small stipend based on ticket sales, $150 minimum.
