“He drew a circle to shut us out
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout;
But love and I had the wit to win,
We drew a Circle that took him in.”
– Edwin Markham
To REACH the Unreachable Star!
We are so proud of our fall production of The Who’s Tommy and thank all of you who came out to see our comeback show. While producing Tommy, we realized that not everyone was familiar with Open Circle’s history and mission. So here’s how we’re going to fix that!
September 15, 16 & 17
