Press Corps Poised to Wow Tuesday Night at Skits


Tallahassee, FL – It's that time again: The 55th Annual Capital Press Corps skits on Tuesday night. As Margie Menzel tells us, reporters will perform for lawmakers - instead of the other way around.

Rehearsal at The Moon Sunday brought out Dave Royse, who put aside his duties as bureau chief of the News Service of Florida long enough to compose a rap, and of course, Troy Kinsey of Bay News 9, in his classic role as Gov. Charlie Crist.

"I swore an oath...I took a pledge...I have a duty, dammit...to be at the press skits on Tuesday night. Because if I'm not, I'm gonna catch hell from the people. Gonna catch hell. And we can't allow that...not here in Florida."

Tickets are $20, available beforehand at the Florida Press Center, and all proceeds go to the Barbara Frye Scholarship Fund. Doors open at The Moon at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, and the show starts at 8 p.m.
