The Tony Award-winning SF Mime Troupe opens July 4 in Dolores Park with its 54th season premiering "Oil & Water"
|After a successful grassroots fundraising effort, SFMT fans rallied to underwrite the SFMT's 54th season. This summer SFMT is doing something different. Within a larger musical/comedic frame, OIL & WATER is actually two shorter plays - CRUDE INTENTIONS and DEAL WITH THE DEVIL - each stylistically unique but topically linked and musically interwoven. The plays challenge the dangerous energy practices of both corporations and the rest of us.
CRUDE INTENTIONS and DEAL WITH THE DEVIL - both written by Pat Moran and Adolfo Mejia. Music & lyrics for both shows are by Pat Moran. Mime Troupe stalwarts Velina Brown and Lisa Hori-Garcia perform, joined by returning Rotimi Agbabiaka and first-time troupe performer Hugo E Carbajal.

Extended application deadline for Summer Workshop is May 31st!

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.
