Washington, D.C., comedy troupe Capitol Steps coming to Mount Baker Theatre

The Capitol Steps, a Washington, D.C., comedy troupe that began as a group of Senate staffers, present a show based on songs from their current album, “How to Succeed In Congress Without Really Trying,” at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15, at Mount Baker Theatre, 104 N. Commercial St.

The Capitol Steps have been a staple at the nation’s capitol for more than 30 years, providing a unique blend of musical and tasteful lampooning guaranteed to leave both sides of the political spectrum laughing. They have appeared on “The Today Show,” “Nightline,” “CBS Evening News” and for many years in specials for National Public Radio.

Their show is constantly changing, strenuously bipartisan, and includes songs about everything in the news, such as “Putin on a Blitz,” “The Big Benghazi Theory” and “Everybody Must Get Droned.”

If you’ve ever wanted to see Barack Obama sing a show tune, Nancy Pelosi sing a rock song and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie do a classical ballet, their show might just be you!

Tickets, $30 to $49, are at 360-734-6080 and mountbakertheatre.com. Students can buy half-price tickets starting one hour prior to the performance.
