Lanesboro Community Theater will present “Circle Mirror Transformation” by Annie Baker, directed by Catherine Glynn.

The shows will be Feb. 23, 24 and 25 at 7 p.m. and on Feb. 26 at 2 p.m. at the St. Mane Theater in Lanesboro.

A synopsis of the play reads, “When four lost souls enrolled 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.”

Jennifer Kimball-Olson plays Marty, the drama instructor. Her students include her husband, James, played by Robin Krom; former actress Theresa, played by Bebe Keith; Morgan Ming plays Lauren, a high schooler; and Schultz, a carpenter, is played by Blake Lauritsen-Norby.

“The Lanesboro Community Theatre (LCT) has such heart!” said Glynn. “From the auditions to the rehearsal process I have encountered open-hearted, generous souls who put their all into this project. The word amateur means ‘to love,’ and it’s clear everyone involved with LCT loves it. This little show is all about amateurs who fall in and out of love with each other, with theater, and ultimately, I think each character also discovers a bigger piece of themselves to hold onto and love as well. I look forward to having the community see the show because it truly mirrors what can take place when you take a good long look at who you really are.”

Tickets will be available at the door, or in advance at Parkway Market. One can also order online at BrownPaperTickets.com or by calling 1-800-838-3006.

The play does contain some mature language and content.
