NCC Fall Semester
For the Fall, under the guidance of State and County officials, and placing health and safety first, NCC will provide the majority of courses that can be instructed remotely or online in the following format. Courses that have critical components and require face-to-face instruction, including classes with lab components that cannot easily be replicated remotely, will be instructed on-campus in a face-to-face format following appropriate health and safety guidelines and procedures to maintain the safety of the NCC community.
For Immediate Release: February 10, 2016
Garden City, NY – The Nassau Community College Department of Theatre and Dance will present Circle Mirror Transformation, written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker, March 3 through 6 and 9 through 13 at the Little Theatre.
Circle Mirror Transformation takes place in a small Vermont community. Local residents take part in a six-week acting class, during which much is revealed — some of it funny, some of it painful. Taught by their free-spirited and supportive leader Mary, the group includes: Schultz, a recently divorced, emotionally vulnerable carpenter; Teresa, an earnest and vibrant former actress; and Lauren, a reserved and self-conscious high schooler. In one small room, quiet wars are waged, emotional wounds are nursed, and healing is finally, slowly, able to begin. During the play, the audience takes a transcendent journey through the mundane into the profound.
Performances of Circle Mirror Transformation are at 8:00 p.m., except Sundays, when they are at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are priced at $9.00, discounted to $7.00 for seniors 55 and over and $5.00 for those under 18. Groups of 15 or more pay $5.00 per ticket for the Wednesday, March 9 performance. While supplies last, weeknight rush tickets (tickets bought at the door at the time of performance) are free for college students with current ID. For more information, please call the theatre box office at 516.572.7676 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except for College holidays.
