McCain Performance Series hosts a peaceful transition of comedy from Capitol Steps to Capitol Fools

Posted Aug 28, 2023 1:43 PM

MANHATTAN — The 2023-2024 McCain Performance Series opens election season with the Capitol Fools at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15, in Kansas State University's McCain Auditorium.

The political satire originally performed by the Capitol Steps continues with the Capitol Fools — the new musical parody group created by the performers and co-writers from the Capitol Steps. The Capitol Fools group holds up a mirror to the nation's political culture, providing hilarious song parodies and foolish reflections that continue to inspire belly laughs.

Audiences will continue to see cast members from past seasons of the Capitol Steps performing all the beloved bits, the show-ending and mind-boggling backward-talking spoonerisms, breakneck costume changes, over-the-top impressions, and all-new song parodies reflecting the day's news.

Tickets are available online at or at the ticket office in the McCain lobby from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays. Tickets are also available by phone at 785-532-6428 during the same hours. Kids 17 and under get 50% off the general price of admission for this show.
