This critical moment in history is calling on us to be hyper-vigilant, to find new ways
to collaborate and resist and to reach new audiences. But we literally cannot do it without you.

to keep SFMT out-front and outspoken. Now more than ever, we need your financial support

YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK
FOR LOCAL ARTISTS!!
||The San Francisco Mime Troupe is a grateful grantee of the Voluntary Arts Contribution Fund. This fund administrated through SF Grants for the Arts has been a bonus for local arts organizations particularly with their Creative Space programs that help fund facility upgrades and repairs, expenses that can really impact a company's (like ours) already stretched budget. As your bills come due, we ask all SF PROPERTY OWNERS to regularly check the VACF box on their tax bills and give a donation to help their local San Francisco Arts organizations maintain a home in this increasingly expensive city.
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 is currently looking for presenters for a Fall, 2017 tour of FREEDOMLAND
"...hilarious, while also serving as a sobering depiction of how entire segments of the population can be automatically seen as a threat because of the color of their skin..."
FREEDOMLAND, is a tragic musical farce about the militarization of the police, the continuing War on Drugs, the institutionalized racism of our judicial system, and how these three converge on, and are besieging, Black men in America.
Our plan is to bring the show to Southern California, the Midwest, and East Coast, to spark not only conversations of the issue, but also inspire and encourage activists fighting for justice. If you are interested in helping bring this show to your community please contact us at email@example.com.

"Once again, the San Francisco Mime Troupe has produced an action-initiating play that deserves to be seen far and wide..."
Talkin' Broadway - July 2015
"The laughs, served in a steady flow, are justly earned and make it almost too easily bearable to consider the tragic situation on display."
Examiner.com - 7/8/15
"Bravura performance." "Brilliant." "Freedomland... stands out as one of the most thoughtful and sobering (of the Troupe's productions)."

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.
