Adopt A Bill!

It ain't sexy, it don't sing and dance, but it's the cost of doing biz-ness, plain and simple. Times are tough for everyone, we know, but if you could kick in a few extra dollars by adopting a bill the Mime Troupe will be able to keep the show on the road! Follow the adoption progress from now till the end of the summer by revisting this page! Make your donation at the bottom of the page.
