Events: WSF presents The Capitol Steps
June 24, 2014
The Capitol Steps, a Washington DC-based comedy troupe that began as a group of Senate Staffers, will present a show based on songs from their current album “Fiscal Shades of Gray” in the Pennsylvania Ballroom at Clarion Hotel & Conference Center, 148 Sheraton Drive, New Cumberland, PA on 21 September 2014.
The Capitol Steps have been a Washington, DC institution for over thirty years, providing a unique blend of musical and political comedy to our Nation’s Capitol and more. Each show consists of tasteful lampooning guaranteed to leave both sides of the political spectrum laughing. The troupe started in 1981, when John McCain was only 63 years old! Since then, they have appeared on “The Today Show,” “Nightline,” “CBS Evening News” and for many years in specials for National Public Radio.
Their show is constantly changing, strenuously bi-partisan, and includes songs about everything in the news, such as “Putin on a Blitz,” “You Can’t Hide This Biden Guy,” and “Greece! The Musical.”
If you’ve ever wanted to see Barack Obama sing a show tune, Nancy Pelosi sing a rock song, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie do a classical ballet, this might just be the show for you!
In addition to the performance, heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be provided as well as a silent auction taking place. All proceeds to benefit the World Surgical Foundation.
Doors open at 1:30 PM. Tickets can be purchased from Whitaker Center. For ticketing information, visit whitakercenter.org or call +1 717 214ARTS (2787).
