VITERBO’S NEXSTAR SEASON OPENS WITH CAPITOL STEPS OCT. 29
LA CROSSE, Wis. – Viterbo University will open its NexStar season with Capitol Steps, a hilarious satire of Washington D.C., Sunday, Oct. 29 at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.
With songs poking fun at famous politicians and celebrities such as Bill Clinton, Bob Dole, and Oprah Winfrey, the Capitol Steps will leave audiences laughing and wanting more delightfully humorous satire.
The group consists of members who are former (but not disgruntled) congressional staffers who travel the country satirizing the very people and places that once employed them, as they create new lyrics for familiar tunes. The group takes pride in attempting to be funnier than even the politicians themselves.
Capitol Steps is “the best musical satire on Washington we have ever seen,” according to the Washington Times.
This performance is co-sponsored by Carlson Wagonlit Travel. Tickets are $31 for main floor, $29 for lower balcony, and $24 for upper balcony seating. For more information, contact the Viterbo University box office at 608-796-3100 or www.viterbo.edu/finearts1.aspx.
