THEATRE AT RVCC TO PRESENT CAPITOL STEPS

Tickets cost $29 and $34.
The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. Although not all of the current Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, together the performers represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience. The Capitol Steps have recorded 27 albums, including the group?s latest, Springtime for Liberals.
