'Mock the Vote' with the Capitol Steps

SHIPPENSBURG – The H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center at Shippensburg University presents the comedy of the Capitol Steps at 8 p.m. Thursday, April 14.

A Washington, D.C.-based comedy troupe that began as a group of Senate Staffers, the Capitol Steps will present a show based on songs from their current album “Mock the Vote.”

The troupe has been a Washington, DC institution for more than 30 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 and since then have appeared on “The Today Show,” “Nightline,” “CBS Evening News” and in specials for National Public Radio.

Their show is constantly changing, strenuously bi-partisan, and includes songs about everything in the news, such as “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Crimea,” “Ain’t No Pipeline, Now It’s Gone,” and “The iMpossible iWatch.”

If you’ve ever wanted to see Barack Obama sing a show tune, Nancy Pelosi sing a rock song or New Jersey Governor Chris Christie do a classical ballet, this might just be the show for you.
