SYNOPSIS: Studying for a test on the U.S. Constitution will make you fall asleep! In this audience-participation adventure, a young girl does just that and is surprised to meet George Washington and Ben Franklin. Even more surprising is that her dog is now wearing a wig and claiming to be James Madison. My Dog Ate the Constitution utilizes songs, games and humor to teach students curriculum-based U.S. History and civic responsibility in a memorable and interactive manner.

"My Dog Ate the Constitution gets to the heart of a child's imagination. It brings the historical figures and founding acts to life with humor, entertainment and audience participation. Stacey Lane understands children. The play is cleverly written to connect young enquiring minds to this pivotal event in American history."
By Shirley Tipping - Librarian - Kelvinside Academy School
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.
