Living Room Theatre is back with CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION written by Annie Baker. 

Imagine seeing a poster for a new drama class at your local Vermont community center when something about it strikes a chord and you think what the heck, maybe I should sign up. You've always wondered what it would be like to act, so you take the plunge.

In Annie Baker's play, five strangers gather once a week for six weeks to play theater games and improvise. They pretend, they share, they learn through exercises they never imagined doing. Becoming an actor isn't easy, but interestingly, it's a lot like being a regular person. As the youngest character says -- and I'm paraphrasing here:  Isn't it strange how many times your life totally changes and starts all over again?  

The play opened in 2009 in New York and won the Obie Award for Best New American Play. LRT's brilliant acting ensemble includes favorite LRT actors Ken Forman, Lizzie-King Hall, and Allen McCullough. Jacqueline Jacobus and Oona Roche are making their LRT debuts, and founding member Christopher McCann directs (audiences will remember him from all our Chekhov productions and Exit The King).

Performances:  August 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11 & 12 at 7:30. August 13 at 2pm in the Carriage Barn. Tickets are pay-what-you-will (with a suggested donation of $30)

Make your reservations as seating is limited and we don't want you to miss this! Call 802-442-5322 or write to us at  info@lrtvt.org
