Capitol Steps bring political comedy to BF Opera House

BELLOWS FALLS — The Capitol Steps, a Washington, D.C.-based comedy troupe, will perform to benefit the Windham & Windsor Housing Trust at the Bellows Falls Opera House on Friday, Sept. 29, at 8 p.m.

Before The Daily Show, Full Frontal, and The Colbert Report, the comedy troupe made audiences laugh with their bipartisan lampooning. The Capitol Steps began in 1981 as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize their employers, according to a news release.

The troupe is coming to Bellows Falls with a new show of musical and political comedy based on songs from their current album Orange is the New Barack.

Tickets are available by calling 888-757-5559 or visiting All proceeds benefit the Windham & Windsor Housing Trust.

A member-based nonprofit organization, the Windham & Windsor Housing Trust creates a full spectrum of renter and owner-occupied housing opportunities that serve the residents of Windham and Windsor counties who are least served by the prevailing market.

Since its founding in 1987, the Trust has created more than 900 safe and affordable homes and apartments for nearly 1500 Vermonters; its work has helped to revitalize neighborhoods, preserve historic properties, and enhance economic vitality throughout the region.
