Play Within a Play

CircleMirrorTransformationCorvallis will get the rare opportunity to see a brilliant play within a play when Annie Baker’s award-winning hit the Circle Mirror Transformation comes to the Majestic Theatre in April. The performance follows five small-town actors as they meet up at their weekly community drama class. The actors and their backgrounds couldn’t be any more different. Through acting practices and theater games, their personal struggles and true identities are revealed to the audience and themselves.

Circle Mirror Transformation received wide critical acclaim when it won an Obie Award (Off-Broadway Theater Award) for best new American play in 2010. With multiple showings starting on Friday, April 4, theater-lovers will have ample opportunity to see this one-of-a-kind performance. On Sunday, April 6, guests can meet and talk with the cast and crew following the play.

Performances are scheduled for Fridays and Saturdays, April 4, 5, 11, and 12 at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, April 6 and 13 at 2:30 p.m. at the Majestic Theatre, 115 SW 2nd Street. Tickets are $12 to $14, available by calling 541-738-7469 or online at
