The Ghent Playhouse announces auditions for Annie Baker’s Obie Award-winning play, CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION, to be directed by Brian Wagner.


In a small Vermont town, five strangers gather in a dance studio to embark on a unique journey in a creative drama class for adults.  Together, they move through a series of acting exercises, ranging from the heartbreaking to the ridiculous.  In one small room, through some seemingly trivial games, quiet wars are waged, emotional wounds are nursed and healing is finally, slowly able to begin. This quiet masterpiece takes its audience on a transcendent journey through the mundane into the profound.


(Female, playing 55, casting 50’s-60”)  The supportive class instructor.  A free spirit; somewhat eccentric and totally zen.
JAMES – (Male, playing 60, casting 50’s-60’s)   Marty’s quiet and genial husband; a mellow, middle-aged hippie.
SCHULTZ – (Male, playing 48, casting 40’s-50’s)  A recently divorced, emotionally vulnerable carpenter
THERESA – (Female, playing 35, casting 30’s-40’s)  A beautiful, confident, earnest and vibrant former professional actress.
LAUREN – (Female, playing 16, casting teens-early 20’s)  A mopey, self-conscious high-schooler.
