On Saturday, Jan. 15, 2011, Washington’s own Capitol Steps will appear at Rockford High School’s Fine Arts Auditorium at 8:00 p.m. for the 15th annual Rockford Education Foundation Benefit.
The Capitol Steps began as a group of senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. Since they began more than 25 years ago, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 billion albums, including their latest “Liberal Shop of Horrors.” They’ve been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC and PBS. Most cast members have worked on Capitol Hill; some for Democrats, some for Republicans, and others for politicians who firmly straddle the fence. No matter who holds the office, there is never a shortage of material.
Tickets are on sale now for $35 (reserved seating) and are available by calling the Rockford Education Foundation (REF) office at (616) 863-6317 or visiting the website at www.rockfordschools.org/ref.
The REF provides resources for increased educational opportunities for people of all ages in the Rockford community. Since 1991, the REF has awarded over $860,000 in grants to Rockford.
