‘Circle Mirror Transformation’ begins this evening

The School of Theatre begins performances of Circle Mirror Transformation  by Annie Baker Wednesday, Feb. 15. Performances run at 7:30 p.m. nightly, Wednesday, Feb. 15 through Saturday, Feb. and  Thursday, Feb. 23 through Feb. 25 in the Francis-Booth Experimental Theatre in the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center.

The production is directed by School of Theatre Associate Professor Nicole Perrone.

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.

Tickets are $20 for the general public, $15 for Marshall University faculty and staff, and $7 for children 12 and under.  Marshall University students are admitted with a valid I.D.

To purchase tickets, contact Marshall’s box office on the Huntington campus Monday through Friday from 1 to 4:30 p.m. or by calling 304-696-ARTS (2787).
