3f; 2m

  • Marty – (Female, playing 55, casting 50s - 60s) The instructor. Somewhat eccentric, and totally zen.
  • James – (Male, playing 60, casting 50s - 60s) Married to Marty. A mellow middle-aged hippie.
  • Schultz – (Male, playing 48, casting 40s - 50s) Depressed, newly divorced.
  • Theresa – (Female, playing 35, casting 30s - 40s) Beautiful, confident, recently gave up trying to act professionally.
  • Lauren – (Female, playing 16, casting teens - 20s) A mopey, shy teenager.

When four lost New Englanders who enroll in Marty's six-week-long community-center drama class begin to experiment with harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won. A beautifully crafted diorama, a petri dish in which we see, with hilarious detail and clarity, the antic sadness of a motley quintet.

Tull is a veteran Curtain Players director, having overseen productions of Arsenic and Old Lace (2018), Rabbit Hole (2017), You Can't Take It With You (2016), Picnic (2014), and All My Sons (2013).

Script review, auditions, and performances take place at:
Curtain Players Theatre
5691 Harlem Road, Galena, OH 43021

Curtain Players offers a information session for each of its productions as a help for actors seeking roles, but attendance is not required to audition. The event is an opportunity for actors to become acquainted with the community theatre organization, to discuss the play with the director, and to ask questions about the audition process, rehearsal period, and production plans. Those interested in working behind the scenes are also invited to attend.

Curtain Players conducts open auditions for its productions. Roles are not cast in advance, and, unless specified otherwise in the role's description, are open to all without regard to race or ethnicity. Casting decisions are made by the director and a casting committee comprised of a member of the theatre board, a general member of the organization, and individuals of the director's choosing.

Actors are encouraged to come to auditions familiar with the script and ready to read sides from the script. Every effort will be made to give all actors equal chance to read. Monologues are not required. Resumes are necessary, and headshots are helpful and encouraged. The play takes place during an acting class, so please come dressed to move rather than dressed to impress (no heels, dresses, suits, etc.), as we'll be doing acting exercises in addition to reading sides. These characters are not experienced actors - the movement part of the audition is not to show that you already know how to do these exercises, but to show your willingness to be vulnerable and try new things! Advance copies of the audition sides will be given to those who attend the script review.

Requests for an early audition for Circle Mirror Transformation must be made no later than December 27, 2020.

Questions related to the audition process may be directed to

Rehearsals will take place Tuesday - Thursday nights (7-10pm) and Sunday afternoons (2-6pm). Conflicts will be incorporated into the rehearsal schedule if presented at auditions.
