Capitol Steps

The Capitol Steps are coming back to Wolfeboro on Saturday, August 24th to wrap up the Great Waters Music Festival 2018 season at the Kingswood Arts Center. Show time is 7:30. Come as you are and laugh as you get a new perspective on politics.

Although the Capitol Steps are based in Washington, DC., most of their shows are out-of-town or for out-of-town audiences, whether it’s the National Welding Supply Association, a university audience, high schoolers, or State Legislators. In fact, the Capitol Steps have performed for the last 5 Presidents. The only complaints the Steps seem to get are from politicians and personalities who are not included in the program! 

No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. What more would you expect from the group that puts the “MOCK” in Democracy?!

Most cast members have worked on Capitol Hill; some for Democrats, some for Republicans, and others for politicians who firmly straddle the fence. No matter who holds office, there’s never a shortage of material. Elaina Newport, producer of Capitol Steps, says “Typically the Republicans goof up, and the Democrats party. Then the Democrats goof up and the Republicans party. That’s what we call the two-party system.”

Great Waters Music Festival is a non-profit organization dedicated to culturally enriching New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. The festival encompasses a diversified program designed to appeal to a variety of musical tastes. Its purpose is to promote live musical performances including folk, pops, jazz, Broadway, dance, and renowned vocal and instrumental artists.
