      HAMMOND – The Tangi Chapter of the Southeastern Alumni Association is sponsoring a dinner theatre featuring the popular comedy troupe The Capitol Steps on Oct. 10, and seats are still available.

     Tickets are $55 per person and include dinner and a ticket to see The Capitol Steps. A cash bar will also be available.

     Scheduled at the Columbia Theatre for the Peforming Arts in downtown Hammond, the dinner is scheduled from 6 – 7 p.m. in the Conference Center, with the production following at 7:30 p.m. in the John J. Hainkel Performance Hall.

     "Limited seats are available for this extremely funny and popular show, so don't wait to get your tickets," said Alumni Director Kathy Pittman. "You don't have to be a Southeastern alumnus to take advantage of this great opportunity. Anyone can join us for a fun, entertaining night."

     The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that once employed them.

     The group was born in December, 1981, when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. They decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and they created song parodies and skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor.

     Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 albums, including their latest, "Take the Money and Run — for President." They have been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard four times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their "Politics Takes a Holiday" radio specials.

     Columbia Theatre season ticket holders are welcome and should call 985-549-2150 for more information.

     For all other inquiries or to RSVP, call the Alumni Association at 985-549-2150.
