It made us proud to be from Pittsburgh!”Denise Hoffman, teacher, Forbes Elementary School
We the People, the Musical
Book Now for 2013!
There is no better way to celebrate America than with America’s favorite anthems set to poignant and uplifting original compositions. Through a series of sketches and songs, this show explores our Constitution and Civil Rights. Using the Preamble to the Constitution as a framework for the show, the cast takes us on a journey showing not only how the Constitution applies to our past, but also to our present and future. Everyday life is showcased in both funny and touching vignettes, offering a variety of moods as it explores the deeper meanings of the language of the Constitution. Tributes to the military, freedom songs and a celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous speech, “I Have a Dream”, all become part of this patchwork quilt of American life. This educational and inspirational musical masterpiece will leave all involved not only with a better understanding of the founding of America but also a stronger appreciation for what makes this country unique and great today.
