Happy Halloween!
Trickle Down Doesn't Work For Pumpkins Either
Dear Troupers,

Longer nights, falling leaves, gigantic pumpkins and robo calls. It's election season - the spookiest time of the year! Be afraid, be very afraid...at least that's what some candidates want. Terrorists, tax hikes, the economy, Obamacare---yikes- socialism!!! Fear mongering and finger pointing have become the new American pastime (sorry Giants!). But there is seriously scary stuff too: disenfranchising legitimate voters; rolling back women's choices; amending the Constitution in "defense of marriage"; all against the backdrop of the goose-stepping  corporatist march on Washington.


Most frightening of all are the folks 

Who plan on  not voting Nov. 6th. 


With the stakes so high and the race so tight, now is not the time to voice displeasure with the current administration by not voting. We ask that if you meet one of these zombies challenge their brain dead decision by reminding them of what is at stake; the environment, Prop 37, the Supreme Court and Roe vs. Wade for starters. This is not a single-issue election. It's a mandate on the ideological path of this country. Please help get out the vote!!!



In Continued Solidarity,

The San Francisco Mime Troupe


Special Event!
Saturday, November 3
Velina Brown
Songs I Always Wanted to Sing
With Mime Troupe composer/lyricist Pat Moran on guitar, this will be an evening of SFMT veteran
Velina singing songs she's performed for thousands in shows like "Too Big To Fail," "Posibilidad," and "Making a Killing," plus songs she loved from hit Mime Troupe shows like "Spain '36," "Red State," and "For the Greater Good," written for other characters, but which Velina has always wanted to perform! 
She also will be singing some classic activist tunes like "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream," and "The Banks are Made of Marble," and with special guest Barrett Nelson accompanying Velina she will also perform a few of the songs she's written over the years - some of which she's never performed in public!
So reserve a seat for this one-time musical event! Seating is very limited, so call to make sure you'll get a space to see Velina Brown sing some of the songs she's always wanted to sing!
