BlueBarn Theatre Announces Auditions for:
What the Constitution Means to Me
About the Play: Fifteen year old Heidi earned her college tuition by winning Constitutional debate competitions across the United States. In this hilarious, hopeful, and achingly human new play, she resurrects her teenage self in order to trace the profound relationship between four generations of women and the founding document that shaped their lives. Hailed as the best play of the year in 2019 by the New York Times and earning two Tony Award nominations, this boundary-breaking play breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of Americans.
Audition Dates: Nov 5 from 10am-12:30pm and Nov 7 from 5pm-7:30pm at BlueBarn Theatre (1106 S 10th St, Omaha, NE)
Director: Susan Clement
Rehearsal Dates: January 1 – February 1
Production Dates: February 2 – February 26
