The Tony Award-winning SF Mime Troupe opens in the Bay Area July 4, 7 & 8 with its 59th season premiering
"Seeing Red: A Time-Traveling Musical"

It's Election Night 2018 and Bob swears she'll never vote again. A lifetime of fading fortunes made this former Obama voter take a chance on the new guy promising change-Donald J. Trump. But it's two years into his presidency and Bob's still waiting to start winning. Tonight she's telling everyone in her small-town bar that all politicians are liars, the system is rigged, and nothing's ever gonna change.

Along comes a mysterious stranger with an intriguing offer. He'll show her an America where working people come together to demand a brighter future, where socialism isn't a dirty word. He'll take her all the way ... to 1912.

Bob soon finds herself traveling back to a time when the Socialist Party was winning millions of American votes; uncovering a hidden history and realizing that she may have more in common with those pesky progressives on the coasts. She begins to ask: what will it take to get people to stop voting against their interests? How do we overcome the divide-and-conquer tactics that keep us all down? When did our electoral choices get so limited? And isn't it time to get off the swinging pendulum that's left us at our current impasse?

Summer Appeal

SFMT has had a ring-side seat for 6 decades of history and have eagerly offered our stats and color commentary along the way. As we welcome the next generation of Troupers we are more committed than ever to tell the stories of working people from different perspectives in the quest for real communication between us, not just selective "Fake News". But we need your help to do it! This summer, we have no NEA grants and the competition for other organizational funding is fierce. We need the financial support from friends like you to keep us onstage and outspoken as we seek to expand our audiences both demographically and geographically. Please consider you tax-deductible donation as a support not just for us but for those who have gone before. 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.
