It's definitely not politics as usual when The Capitol Steps return Sunday, October 21 for a night of musical political satire!
About the Capitol Steps:
The Capitol Steps is a troupe of current and former Congressional staffers who monitor events and personalities on Capitol Hill, in the Oval Office and in other centers of power and prestige around the world, taking a humorous look at serious issues while providing a nationwide laugh for millions.
Join us at St. Louis Public Radio the evening of October 24 for a closer look at four of the big decisions Missouri voters face this fall.
St. Louis on the Air host Don Marsh will moderate discussions with proponents and opponents of several key issues on the November 2018 ballot, including Amendment 1, Proposition B, and Proposition D, as well as the three competing proposals that would legalize medical marijuana (Amendments 2 and 3 an Proposition C).
Audience members will have an opportunity at the event to submit questions for potential inclusion in the conversation. The discussions will be recorded and will later air on St. Louis on the Air in the days leading up to the midterm election on Nov. 6.
Welcome to a night of terror—and fun—when Nine Network and St. Louis Public Radio, in partnership with Johnnie Brock’s Dungeon Party Warehouse, present a classic Halloween film. Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein will provide the laughs and gasps on screen in the outdoor Public Media Commons.
We’ll kick off the event with music from DJ limewire.prime and an Oh So Vivant photo booth. There will be food, public media swag attendance prizes, and a costume contest — so break out your clever and creative ideas then come prepared to wow the judges (please, no weapons, drug paraphernalia, etc.).
Tickets are only $10! Each Halloween Movie Night ticket purchased includes a complimentary specialty cocktail or mocktail. A cash bar will be available to purchase other beverages.
The movie starts at 8:00 p.m. Please bring chairs or blankets for seating.
This event is rain or shine. In case of inclement weather, we will move indoors to the Nine Network Studio (no need to bring your own chair if inside).
Please note event terms and conditions: Alcohol will be present. Every person, regardless of age, must have a ticket to enter. The ticket holder voluntarily assumes all risk and danger incidental to the event for which this ticket is issued, whether occurring prior to, during or after the event. Ticket is valid only for the event date and time listed on the ticket. We may photograph and record portions of this event for promotional purposes. By registering for this event, you grant permission for your image to appear in a public media production. All proceeds benefit the Nine Network and St. Louis Public Radio.

The Arianna Quartet joins forces with UMSL philosophy theorist and aesthetics scholar, Dr. Stephanie Ross, for an inspiring and entertaining look at the inner workings of how great compositions and live performance come together to create lasting masterpieces. What makes a musical masterpiece a masterpiece, or a movie, or book, or even a building, truly great? Why do we enjoy revisiting favorite works again and again? If we treat favorite works like cherished friends, what determines which new works we can come to love? Do we ever outgrow works we once admired? Don't miss this opportunity to join the ASQ and philosopher Stephanie Ross at UMSL Grand Center for a thought provoking evening of performance and insight that is sure to change how you see and hear the world around you.
