In order to continue to serve you, our community, we are looking to you to commit to sustaining us as we continue to create a practical model that reflects "The New Economy" so that we can continue to offer our free shows and summer workshop.

 Want to make a real impact for the Troupe?  We need one donor/Angel to step up and fund the remaining cost ($1800) for our new database which is still in creation.  We need to raise this money... yesterday.  Contact Karen at info@sfmt.org if you can help!

We're kicking into high gear for "Oil and Water", inspired to be writing a show about natural resources.  The consequences of pollution, climate change, and impending scarcity are as sobering as the call for action is urgent. New this year, we invite you to be part of the learning process with us.  As we continue to research these issues and interview experts, we will be regularly posting topical information and perspectives via Facebook. Please join our conversation by sharing environmental solutions and local & global actions!
