Capital Steps to perform Sunday

The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council will present a performance by Capitol Steps, a Washington, DC-based comedy troupe, on Sunday Jan. 24, at 7 pm at Centennial Hall.

Now in their 17th season, the troupe will present a show based on songs from their current album “Mock the Vote.”  

Art Passports and JAHC Packs are still available for the final three performances of The Juneau Arts & Humanities Season 42. The Art Passport offers the opportunity to be entered into a raffle at the first Food Truck Friday and the JAHC Pack offers a 20 percent discount on the purchase of four or more tickets.

The Capitol Steps have been a Washington, DC, institution for more than 30 years, providing a blend of musical and political comedy. 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 bi-partisan show 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.” 

Tickets are on sale now at The Juneau Arts & Culture Center, Hearthside Books, and at www.jahc.org.  Tickets range from $5 for UAS students and children, to $30 for adults. Student and senior pricing is available as well.
