‘The Living Constitution’


How would you like to spend your Sunday afternoon learning about the U.S. Constitution—what led up to it being created, the struggles surrounding it and its effects to this day? Wait, wait, before you say “no,” roll your eyes and think, “That is the worst way I can think of to spend a glorious spring afternoon,” what if I told you there’s humor involved? Lots of it. The Living Constitution mixes hilarious antics with history and this, my friends, always makes the “medicine go down” much easier. What to expect from this hourlong production? Well, how about “pratfalls, wrestling matches and scores of arguing politicians”? Written by local screenwriter Gary Weinberg and local acting coach Melanie Smith, the play was performed at several area libraries this past September and October as well as for junior high school students. I’m told it’s been a hit with junior high kids, so if they give it a thumbs-up, it’s gotta be good. A performance of The Living Constitution takes place this Sunday, April 7 at 1 p.m. at the Center for Spiritual Awareness in West Sacramento. The cost is a “love offering,” which means you pay-what-you-can/want. Though keep in mind, this performance is a benefit for CSA. The play is suitable for audience members older than 5.
