Upcoming Auditions

Stupid F*ing Bird

Circle Players, along with director Brian Craig, is pleased to announce auditions for the fifth production in our 2017-2018 season, “Stupid F*ing Bird” by Aaron Posner.

In this irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix of Chekhov’s “The Seagull”, Aaron Posner stages a timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all. This play will tickle, tantalize, and incite you to consider how art, love, and revolution fuel your own pursuit of happiness.

The production runs April 27th – May 13th, 2018.

Auditions will be held at Circle Players on:

    Thursday, February 22nd, 7:30 to 9:30 pm
    Sunday, February 25th, 3 pm to 7 pm
    Callbacks on Monday, February 26th, 7:30 to 9:30 pm. (Please note callbacks are by invitation only.)

If you have any questions please feel free to comment below or shoot us an e-mail at circleplayersnj@gmail.com.
