$45/person (Group discount price)

Includes dinner (6-8 p.m.)

and show (8 p.m.)

Chelsea’s in Georgetown

1055 Thomas Jefferson St., NW

(between 30th and 31st, south of M St.)

Washington, DC

What is “Capitol Steps?” It’s a musical political satire,
“funnier than the Congress,” with contributions from the Cast and the Congress.
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL writes. “The troupe has become a favorite on the
Washington social circuit. It brings chuckles…rave reviews…guffaws…and
bipartisan grins all around. The satire hits the mark.”

Since the Capitol Steps will not refund money for unused
tickets, we have reserved seats for only 20 people, but will increase this
when numbers exceed 20 (which we expect, given the reputation of the show
and our 10% group discount). No tickets will be issued. We will reserve tables
and chairs early so as to guarantee close-up seating with other Stanford
people. Please be punctual; dinner will be served from 6-8 PM. The show will
begin at 8 PM and all food and drinks will be removed.

Please send checks (payable to WDCSA) to: Dell Wilkinson,
6401 N. 27th, Arlington, VA 22207; (703) 237-4818 (h)
