Indian Valley Theatre will bring “We the People” to the historic Sandwich Opera House in July, and auditions are scheduled for this fun and patriotic show. Be a part of the history of America and the celebration of our country in July.

This patriotic tableau begins as a committee discusses putting on a patriotic show for their town. Just what does America mean to them? One person pulls out the Preamble to the Constitution, and they decide to use it as a framework for their play. Through a series of sketches organized phrase by phrase from the Preamble, they show not only how the Constitution applies to our past, but also to our present and future. Everyday life is showcased in both funny and poignant vignettes, offering a variety of moods as it explores the deeper meanings of the language of the Constitution.

From two neighbors arguing their constitutional right to have crabgrass to an immigrant’s heartwarming story of coming to America, this Norman Rockwell-esque revue offers slices of life in America. Spelling bees, parades, and letters home from war zones all become part of this patchwork quilt of American life.

IVT is in need of three males, three females, and six to 10 extras, three of which will be younger children. Walk-in auditions will be from 1 to 4 p.m. May 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. May 5 in the Opera House’s community room. No prior theater experience is needed. Singing ability is a plus, but is not required.

Performances will be July 25, 26 and 27 at the Sandwich Opera House.
