The Tony Award-winning SF Mime Troupe opens in the Bay Area July 4, 6 & 7 with its 60th season premiering
"Treasure Island"

Treasure Island - is it the mythical isle where untold wealth awaits marauding pirates, or the freezing cold, artificial island in the middle of San Francisco Bay awaiting cut-throat developers? Or is it both? That's the question for Jill Hawkins when an old sea-dog of a developer drops anchor in her office at City Hall, and drops a mystery in her lap. "Developers...they scour the map looking for cities with fat purses, ready to be plundered, damn the regulations!" But if Treasure Island is such a wonderful opportunity why has no one developed it yet...? What about the people who live there now? And who is the one-legged developer Hawkins was warned about?

Treasure Island written by Michael Gene Sullivan with Ellen Callas, Marie Cartier. Music by Michael Bello. Lyrics by Daniel Savio. Directed by Wilma Bonet with Lisa Hori-Garcia. Featuring Mime Troupe veterans Lizzie Calogero, Keiko Shimosato Carreiro, Michael Gene Sullivan, as well as returning performers Andre Amarotico, Brian Rivera.

View a KTVU interview with Michael Gene Sullivan about the anthology.

Anthology The never silent, hilariously thought-provoking,Tony and OBIE award-winning San Francisco Mime Troupe, in celebration of our 60 years of revolutionary theatre has put together an anthology of our scripts from 2000 - 2016. From the War on Terror to the War on Drugs, from genetically modified foods to financially modified democracy, from corporate personhood to Occupy to Trump - the Troupe has dealt with the issues of the day with our particular brand of outrageous, hard-hitting political musical comedies, tragedies, farces, and melodramas. Speaking truth to power, giving voice to the voiceless, comforting the afflicted, afflicting the comfortable, this collection of scripts is being provided - including introductions to the plays, photos, fan quotes, and artists biographies - at price every fan, supporter, student, historian, and comrade of the Troupe can afford... FREE!

If you would like to make a donation to show your appriciation

Troupe News

What Are Troupers Up To Now

Have you ever wondered where else past and present Mime Troupe Company Members work and perform? Wonder no more! We will keep you posted on Trouper's current shows and other shows we feel are worth seeing!

The San Francisco Mime Troupe does not do pantomime. We mean 'mime' in the ancient sense: to mimic. We are satirists, seeking to make you laugh at the absurdities of contemporary life, and at the same time see their causes. We travel the country and the world with our message of solidarity, comedy, and the plight of the worker in our increasingly corporatized democracy, and have done shows about most of the burning issues of our time - normally debunking the official story. And because we want our shows about the issues of the day to be seen by the people who are most effected by those issues- working class families who can't always afford to the ticket prices at the other Tony award winning theaters - we perform most of our shows free in public parks, for tens of thousands of our fellow citizens every summer.
