Published by Pioneer Drama, “We the People” begins as a committee discusses putting on a patriotic show for their town. Through a series of sketches organized phrase by phrase from the Preamble of the Constitution, 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.
To magnify the patriotic grandeur of the production, American Legion posts in Oswego, Plano, Sandwich and Yorkville and Paul and Sherry Loewe have donated a number of American flags to Indian Valley Theatre for the show.
“We the People” is sponsored by Bob Wright, State Farm Insurance of Sandwich.
