Spend An Evening with the Capitol Steps as they bring their sizzling political comedy to the Saugatuck Center for the Arts. The Capitol Steps take aim at both sides of the political aisle with their deliciously funny political satire.
Just in time for this fall’s presidential election, the troupe brings its current-event focused humor to the SCA’s boutique theatre. These former Capitol Hill staffers set out over 30 years ago to satirize the very people and places that employed them. The Steps were born in December 1981 when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Ronald Reagan was President when the Steps began, so co-founders Elaina Newport, Bill Strauss and Jim Aidala figured that if entertainers could become politicians, then politicians could become entertainers!
