“That’s the Constitution! Where’d you get that? That’s a very important historical document- at least my teacher says it is- and I bet they don’t want doggy drool on it!”
 
“Mr. Franklin, wake up. We’re talking about history.”
 
“Studying history is not just about memorizing dates and names for tests. It’s about learning from the injustices of the past and righting those wrongs right now.”
 
 
 
MY DOG ATE THE CONSTITUTION by Stacey Lane
 
When My Dog Ate the Constitution premiered at the historic Victoria Theatre, 3000 elementary-school students jumped out of their seats, shouted, clapped, laughed and learned. In this age of standardized testing and crowded classrooms, educators, parents and our community are faced with the challenge of teaching our children about U.S. History and the Constitution. Even more challenging is to spark a genuine interest in our government. The fast-paced comedy, kooky characters and interactive learning games in My Dog Ate the Constitution engage audience members and performers alike. What more, the casting is so flexible and the technical elements so minimal, that My Dog Ate the Constitution can be performed by schools, theatres and touring companies of any size with any budget and any number and age of actors.

Lorne is a lucky guy. He has 368 friends online, and anybody with that many friends has it good. At least, that's what Lorne keeps telling himself. But as time goes on, he has more and more trouble believing it. After his posts about depression go unanswered, Lorne announces to his 368 friends that he plans to kill himself and waits to see if any of them will try to stop...
BAAAAAGELS
Good customer service is apparently extremely hard to find in a local town's bagel shop. The cashier speaks in what almost seems like a different language, but is really just an awful accent making it impossible to figure out exactly where this character is from. Will the customer get their bagel or just a morning of frustration?
CAMPAIGN PROMISES
A timid, love-struck girl is about to tell her boyfriend the three most precious words in anyone's vocabulary: "I love you." Too bad she hears a phone message from another one of his girlfriends. In this clever comedy, our heroine gives this player a taste of his own medicine and lets him see how it feels when he's the victim of a broken promise.
THE EDUCATION OF ANGELS
Witty and extremely funny with a message that will touch every heart - that is the domain of The Education of Angels and the formula that will endear this play to audiences for years to come.

Two unlikely characters, Nick and Jenna, are thrown together in this hilarious tale of two angels in training sent back to earth to help Dave, who is having cold feet on...
GLASS
A fatigued matinee idol on the verge of a nervous breakdown comes home one day from his long-running Broadway hit and discovers an audience watching him through the plate glass window of his high-rise apartment. An excellent Twilight Zone-style play.
IT'S NOT BLUE
In a fru-fru store in a fru-fru mall that sells "lifestyle" rather than product, a frustrated high school student verbally spars with a sales clerk. Style wins over substance every time in this wacky duet.
MAC AND BETH
A young couple has just robbed a bank. The dye pack in the bag of money has exploded, covering Beth's hands with ink. Now she and Mac are in a laundromat, trying to clean themselves, and the money, when suddenly things start unfolding an awful lot like Macbeth, from the arrival of a Sheriff MacDuff and three weird sisters with laundry to do. Minimal set requirements,...
OUTSIDE IN
Outside In traces the lives of 8 teens in Los Angeles over a 24-hour period. We meet a young woman who ran away from an abusive home, a boy who wants to be a superhero, girls with boyfriend trouble, an artistic boy whose father and brother are jocks, a girl who gets a text message that breaks her heart, and a girl whose first kiss involved a Red Vine, among others. ...
PAPA'S LAST WISH
Ashes to ashes...dust to dust. For Beth, the pool at the YMCA is the perfect place to spread her Papa's ashes. For a horrified lifeguard, stopping her is the perfect nightmare.
RACHEL AND RUTHIE
Do family bonds transcend time? Is there a special connection that bridges generations? Rachel and Ruthie answer these questions as they reveal the powerful and touching nature of the relationship between a granddaughter and her grandmother. An unexpected juxtaposition in time is used to convey a story that is heart-warming yet funny and surreal yet grounded. This...
A SALUTATORIAN'S GRATITUDE
After four years of hard work, graduation is finally here, and Jamie is about to give a Salutatorian speech that no one will ever forget! After discussing the importance of gratitude to his fellow graduates, he quickly begins to drop the facade and let his true feelings come out, including jabs at the Valedictorian (who happens to be the Headmaster's son), his own father (who...
SCRATCHING THE SURFACE
What are we hiding? Through a series of interwoven monologues, Scratching the Surface explores the secrets we keep. What we don't say often speaks volumes. Look into my eyes. That's where you'll find me.
