Winter Appeal

In spite of our now eliminated NEA funds and the growing trend to devalue arts funding, we will continue to speak out loudly against the tyranny of bullies on and offstage. We are up for whatever hurdles lie ahead but the financial obstacles are the ones with which we need your increased help with your tax-deductible gift. In this non-election year please consider your donation a vote for free speech through art. Make SFMT your candidate this year and support our watchdog efforts to sound the alarm of the historic dangers of complicity through complacency. Read more and donate!

News Letter

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.
