Manassas, Virginia – Online registration is open for the Feb 22 presentation of The Capitol Steps in The Blunder Games. The event will take place at Metz Middle School, 9950 Wellington Road in Manassas. This event features The Capitol Steps, who satirize the current events making local and national news with songs and skits. This DC favorite has been voted as the “Best Place to Take an Out-of-Towner” by Washington CITYPAPER Best of DC numerous times as they “Put the MOCK in democracy”.
The evening provides a great way to enjoy a Dinner and a Show without the hassle of traveling all the way into DC. The proceeds benefit many local community service organizations. The Osbourn High School Key Club will provide a catered dinner from 5:00 – 7:00 PM for $6.00 with proceeds going to The ELIMINATE Project. The Bull Run Rotary Club will host a Silent Auction featuring local restaurant gift cards, golf and vacation packages, jewelry, autographed sports and commemorative memorabilia. The proceeds from the silent auction and ticket sales will benefit the Habitat For Humanity, Matthews Center, Transitional Housing – BARN, Inc., and other Bull Run Rotary Club Programs in addition to a number of partner community service organizations.
Rotary is a diverse group of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service to improve health and welfare, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
The event is intended to demonstrate that the strength of a community is multiplied when the many diverse organizations work together in a common effort. The Metz Middle School auditorium can seat up to 1000 guests. In an effort to “Fill the House” and maximize the community benefit, many local organizations have agreed to help sell tickets. It is a rare approach – each participating community partner will benefit by receiving 50% of the after expense proceeds. This joint partnership includes: Ben Lomond Swim Team, CASA Children’s Intervention Services, Manassas Bull Run Rotary Club, Friends of SERVE, Habitat For Humanity, KC’s Learning Institute, Matthews Center, Metz Middle School PTA, Osbourn High School Athletic Boosters, Osbourn High School Key Club, Transitional Housing – BARN, Inc. Each partner has a promotion code listed on the ticket site and will be credited when entered while purchasing tickets.
“The long and slow economic recovery and cuts in government spending have contributed to increased demand for the services from our partners and has reduced the ability of our generous local businesses to contribute directly, especially for our school’s clubs,” says Gerry Peters, President-Elect of the Bull Run Rotary Club. He adds, “This event, appropriately demonstrates that the community can and does unite to meet needs AND we have more success and FUN when we work together.”
The price for the dinner is $6. The ticket prices for the show are $35 for general admission and $75 for limited premium seating. Show prices will increase by $5 on the event day, so don’t delay. The public is encouraged to attend. There are a few sponsorships still available as well as advertising space in the Program. To sponsor or advertise call 703-335-2284.
