The Capitol Steps will play at NS PAC

The Capitol Steps - Election Year 2012 - March 9 at NPAC in Bothell

The election year is heating up - and so is the comedy! The Capitol Steps bring their hilarious music and political satire to the Northshore Performing Arts Center (18125 92nd Ave. NE, Bothell) on Friday March 9 at 8:00 pm.

This Washington-based troupe of Congressional staffers turned songwriters "put the mock in democracy" with pokes at the entire political spectrum!

The group was born in December, 1981 when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Their first idea was to stage a nativity play, but in the whole Congress they couldn't find three wise men or a virgin. So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and they created song parodies & skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor.

In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.

Ticket prices are $40 for Adults, $35 for Seniors,and $25 for Youth under 17. Available online or by phone at (425) 984-2471.
