Hey Kids,

What's that new big white box with the big red stars pulling into town? Why, it's the Freedomland wagon and it's loaded with songs and a story that's guaranteed to make you get up, stand up-stand up for your rights!!!

That's right folks, it's that time of year when the San Francisco Mime Troupe rolls into your neighborhood to exercise our Freedom of Speech and your Right of Assembly; simple rights that we take for granted until they are taken away.

Today while Washington is busy bringing "freedom" to the rest of the world, at home we are witnessing an abuse of power and rollback of rights that betray the foundation of our democracy. 

  

Freedomland       
asks the question: is a young black soldier safer in Afghanistan than in his own neighborhood? A serious subject delivered with smart comedy by Michael Gene Sullivan and great new songs by Ira Marlowe
 

 
This year we are doing things a little differently by opening the show up north in Point Arena (June 24), Ukiah (June 25), and Redway (June 27) and then returning for our Bay Area opening on July 3, 4 & 5th at the newly improved Dolores Park. Check out the whole schedule.

That nice new truck you see was scratched off of our wishlist thanks to a very generous grant from the Puffin Foundation. It is this kind of generosity that makes it possible for us to come to you, and in many cases perform, for FREE. But the "Cost of Free" continues to grow so please check out our appeal and donate. Money is tight all around and every bit helps.

This summer, bring someone new to a Mime Troupe show and help us dispel the myth that we are silent. We aren't and never will be!!  

And while you are in the park (or online) you can pick up a shirt, hoodie, hat, or - The Poster of Posters - from the SFMT Store!

Speaking of shopping online, have you heard of Amazon Smile?! It's still Amazon, but when you shop through Smile, 5% of your purchases can go toward your favor non-profit organization... us! Learn more

See you in the parks!!! 
 
San Francisco Mime Troupe
Name our Truck Contest

 

It's time to give our beautiful new truck an appropriate name. Our last two trucks were named Ivan and Ivey (both were Iveco). This time, something more creative is in order and that's where you come in. Come to the parks and write your suggestion, along with your mailing address, on the back of the show program. Return that portion of your program when you drop a donation in our bucket after the show!!! The winner will be announced at the end of the season. Prizes TBD. 
Camping Under the Stars and Fireworks!

 

The Troupe needs a couple of committed, volunteer troupers to protect / stay with our stage over night in Dolores Park on July 4th from 10p to 8a.  We also have some Berkeley Park options for later in the season and non over night shifts for various Bay Area Parks.  Please contact Karen if you're available and want know more.
