There is no better way to celebrate America than with beautiful, patriotic music — from America’s favorite anthems to poignant and uplifting

original compositions. We the People, the Musical asks the question, “What does America mean to you?” Through a series of sketches and

songs, this show shows 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.

This Norman Rockwellesque review offers slices of life in America. Picnics... tributes to the military... letters home from war...

all become part of this patchwork quilt of American life.

Thank you!

We appreciate all of you who auditioned!
