Yorktown High School Theatre Arts Program
Presents The Capitol Steps!

November 19, 2017    7-9 pm •  $39

The Capitol Steps, a Washington DC-based comedy troupe that began as a group of Senate Staffers, will present a show based on songs from their current CD Mock the Vote at Yorktown High School. Proceeds help to support Yorktown Theatre Arts!

The Capitol Steps has been a Washington, DC institution for over 30 years, providing a unique blend of musical and political comedy to our Nation’s Capital and more.  Each show consists of tasteful lampooning guaranteed to leave both sides of the political spectrum laughing. Ronald Reagan was President when the troupe began in 1981, so the co-founders figured that if entertainers could become politicians, then politicians could become entertainers!

So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and created song parodies and skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor.  This comedic genius has continued for over 30 years by Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them and taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.

No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet The Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. What more would you expect from the group that puts the “MOCK” in Democracy?!

A portion of all ticket proceeds go to support the TAP Program.
