Stetson University stages a student-directed production of the Obie-Award-winning play Circle Mirror Transformation, by Annie Baker. This production is directed by Stetson Theatre Arts major Dakota Stitsinger, and it will take place January 17th-20th in Stetson’s Second Stage Theatre (located inside the Museum of Art, DeLand).
Set in Shirley, a made-up town in Vermont, this play centers on a six-week community acting workshop, where four students and a teacher – all with various levels of acting experience – take a dive into the world of theater. Through performing various acting exercises, the characters learn what it really means to be an actor and how there is more to acting than people may originally think. They also learn more about the people around them – their histories, struggles, and talents. Relationships of all kinds will form and break as everyone learns to expose themselves in the way only actors can.
The Cast includes: Rae Nobles (Marty), Elijah McCoy (James), Drake Cunningham (Shultz), Reed Wilson (Teresa), and Rachel Harrison (Lauren).
Performances for Circle Mirror Transformation are:
- Friday, January 17 at 8 p.m.

- Monday, January 21 at 8 p.m.
