The Capitol Steps Comedy Troupe is coming to Calvert February 21, 2013 at Huntingtown High School. Calvert Alliance Against Substance Abuse Inc. (CAASA) is pleased to announce that the 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”. The show will raise funds for Project Graduation.
The Capitol Steps has been a Washington, Dc institution for over thirty years, providing a unique blend of musical and political comedy to our Nation’s Capital 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 “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 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.
Come enjoy a night of laughter as we raise funds for Project Graduation 2014, an alcohol-free and drug-free event held on graduation night for the county’s graduating seniors. Tickets are $24 in advance and $30 at the door. Doors open at 7 pm and show starts at 8 pm. You can purchase tickets from the CAASA Office at 30 Duke Street, Suite 104 in Prince Frederick. Starting January 6th, tickets can be purchased at K5 Sports in Prince Frederick, Floral Expressions in Owings and Lotus Kitchen in Solomons.
