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.
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.

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