    Capitol Steps is a troupe of current and former Congressional staffers who perform a political musical satire and keep you laughing about events and personalities on Capitol Hill, the Oval Office, and other centers of power. Capitol Steps takes a humorous look at serious issues and has provided laughs for millions!

    The Capitol 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!

    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, creating song parodies and skits which convey a special brand of satirical humor that is as popular in Peoria as on Pennsylvania Avenue.
