The Santa Monica College Theatre Arts Department will present “Circle Mirror Transformation” Apr. 3-12 at the Theatre Arts Studio Stage on the SMC main campus, 1900 Pico Blvd.

In “Circle Mirror Transformation” — a three-time Obie Award winner written by Annie Baker — an unlikely group of strangers in an artsy small town plays imaginative (and sometimes awkward) theater games while attending an “Adult Creative Drama” class. As their relationships develop, hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won.

Show times are 8 p.m. on Friday, April 3 and 10, and on Saturday, April 4 and 11. Early shows are at 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 5 and 12, and on Thursday, April 9. Matinees are at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 4 and 11, and on Sunday, April 5 and 12. Late arrivals seated at management discretion. No video feed offered in lobby area.

Advance tickets are $10 plus a service charge, and can be purchased by going to or by calling (310) 434-4319 or (310) 434-3005 Monday through Friday. Tickets are $3 higher at the door. Parking is free on Friday evenings and weekends.
