Capitol Steps to perform Nov. 19 in Warrenton

U.S. Senate staff members started the Capitol Steps in 1981.
The Capitol Steps, a Washington political satire group, will perform Sunday, Nov. 19, in Warrenton.

The 4 p.m. performance at Highland School will help celebrate the 50th anniversary of Citizens for Fauquier County, a conservation organization.

Tickets are $25 and are available at the Town Duck or under the tab “Our Work.”

The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the people and places that employed them. The group started in 1981 as entertainment for a Christmas party.

Evolving quickly, the group decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and they created song parodies and skits that conveyed a special brand of satirical humor. The Capitol Steps has performed thousands of times and has produced more than 30 albums.

Founded in 1968, Citizens for Fauquier County has played a leadership role in protecting the community’s rural, agricultural heritage. During its anniversary year, the conservation group will host events and an exhibit of photographs illustrating the preservation of Fauquier’s rural character.
