Mystery Newsmaker May 11 & 12

Listen to WTOP this Saturday and Sunday morning during the 8am hour for the WTOP Mystery Newsmaker Contest. We’ll play the voice of someone you’ve heard in the news this week on WTOP. 

Be the first caller at 855-885-1035 to correctly identify the mystery newsmaker and win a family four pack of tickets to see Cirque du Soleil’s VOLTA on July 30 at Tysons II.

The Cirque du Soleil big top returns to Tysons II this summer with VOLTA! Energetic, urban and contemporary, VOLTA is a captivating voyage of discovery inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of street sports.


Freedom is the ultimate achievement.

VOLTA is about finding yourself and unveiling your personal powers. VOLTA is a story of transformation. It is about being true to oneself, fulfilling one’s true potential, and recognizing one’s own power to make it possible. Ultimate freedom comes with self-acceptance, and with the liberation of the judgement of others.Waz, a gameshow contestant, that has lost touch with himself. He’s ashamed of who he is because of his difference. Follow him as he enters the show in search of fame, thinking that this will bring him love and acceptance from others. What he will find is something else. That fame is not the answer. If fame doesn’t provide freedom and acceptance, then what does? Will WAZ reconnect with his true self – and stand up for all that makes him truly unique? Will he realize that his difference is what makes him extraordinary?

Opens July 26 under the big top at Tysons II.
