Rockland — Tickets are now on sale for The Capitol Steps, appearing live on the downtown Strand Theatre stage Sunday, Nov. 9, at 7:30 p.m. The Washington, D.C.-based comedy troupe that began as a group of Senate staffers will present a show based on songs from its current album, “How to Succeed In Congress Without Really Lying."

The Capitol Steps have been a Washington institution for more than 30 years, providing a distinctive blend of musical and political comedy about our Nation’s Capitol and more.  Each show consists of tasteful lampooning guaranteed to leave both sides of the political spectrum laughing.

The troupe started in 1981. Since then, it has appeared on “The Today Show,” “Nightline,” “CBS Evening News” and for many years in specials for National Public Radio. Their shows are constantly changing, strenuously bi-partisan and include songs about everything in the news, such as “Putin on a Blitz,” “The Big Benghazi Theory” and “Everybody Must Get Droned.”

Tickets are $40 in advance, $45 day of show, general admission. The Strand lobby and balcony bars will be open for those ages 21 and older with a valid ID. For more information on all upcoming live concerts, films, HD broadcasts and events at the Strand, visit; call 594-0070, ext. 3; or email
