“Circle Mirror Transformation” To Play On The Meadville Community Theatre Stage

What do a flirty former actress, a pouty 16-year-old, a hippie husband and a divorced carpenter have in common? Very little, or at least that’s what they think until they take a six week community acting class.   2010 Obie Award for Best New American Play, CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION takes us to a community-center drama class where theatre instructor Marty coaches these four strangers in imaginative, and sometimes awkward, theatre games.   Who would know that over the six weeks these seemingly silly games would end up generating some real-life drama where hearts are quietly torn apart.  A beautifully crafted diorama, a petri dish in which we see, with hilarious detail and clarity, the antic sadness of a motley quintet.

Directed by Beth Watkins and featuring the talents of P.Todd Fox, Dan Crozier, Eric Brockman, Sylvia Cagle and Becky Brenneman, “CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION is the kind of unheralded gem that sends people into the streets babbling and bright-eyed with the desire to spread the word.” – NY Times.  Show dates are September 20th, 21st, 27th, 28th, October 4th, 5th 2013 at 8:00PM and September 29th at 2:00 PM.  Tickets are $10.00 for Adults and $7.50 for Students and Seniors (62+).  For reservations contact The Meadville Community Theatre Box Office at 814-333-1773. The Meadville Community Theatre is located in the Oddfellows Building located on Allegheny College Campus at 400 N. Main St., Meadville, PA. Parking is located in the rear.
