Celebrate Election Year With The Capitol Steps
Are you tired of politics as usual? Do you wish politics could be more interesting?
"Well, the Arts Council of Moore County has the answer to your election year blues," says Chris Dunn, executive director.
On Sunday, Oct. 19, at 3 p.m. at R.E. Lee Auditorium at Pinecrest High School in Southern Pines, ACMC will present The Capitol Steps in a performance of hilarious musical political satire at the expense of politicians.
Admission is $25 for ACMC members, $30 for nonmembers, and can be purchased in advance at Campbell House (482 E. Connecticut Ave., Southern Pines).
The sponsors of this benefit performance are The Pilot, STAR 102.5FM, and WIOZ 550AM.
The Capitol Steps began in 1981 at a Christmas party in the office of the former Senator Charles Percy.
Over the past 27 years, they have recorded 23 albums, and appeared on "Good Morning America," "The Today Show," "20/20," "Entertainment Tonight," "Nightline," CNN's "Inside Politics," and dozens of times on NPR's "All Things Considered."
For the past 19 years, they've produced quarterly specials for public radio and have been featured in three national specials for public television.
Many of the performers have worked on Capitol Hill, some for Republicans, some for Democrats, and some for members who sit firmly on the fence. In fact, the current cast of The Capitol Steps has at one time or another infested the offices of 11 U.S. senators and seven members of the House of Representatives.
For tickets and information, stop by Campbell House (482 E. Connecticut Ave., Southern Pines), call the Arts Council at (910) 692-4356 or visit www.arts council-moore.org.
