Circle Mirror Transformation
Auditions for Annie Baker’s magnificent Obie award winning play Circle Mirror Transformation will be held at the Blue Slipper Theatre on Tuesday, February 26, at 7 pm.
Parts are available for three women ages 17 to 65 and two men ages 18 to 65. Rehearsals for the production, directed by John Henry Haseltine go from March 11 through April 25 with performances running weekends, April 26 through May 12.
The play follows four small town Vermont residents enrolled in Marty Kreisberg’s six-week-long community-center summer drama class. As the play checks in with them week after week, it becomes clear that not only are their outside lives moving the class in unexpected directions, but the seemingly harmless in-class exercises are having epic, life altering influences on the characters. In what the New York Times called an “unheralded gem that sends people into the streets babbling and bright-eyed with the desire to spread the word,” Circle Mirror Transformation is a beautiful meditation on life and is as elegant and gentle as it is hilarious and cutting.
Those interested, but unable to make the February 26 audition date are encouraged to contact John Henry Haseltine at email@example.com to schedule a different audition time.
No previous experience or prepared audition materials are necessary.
Director John Henry Haseltine is an award winning filmmaker and artist. He served as the Technical Director for the Blue Slipper’s current production of No Exit, as well as last season’s Night Comes Early and appeared as Lee in True West.
