Winter Appeal!

In order to realize our 2015 plans we need to raise $45,000 from this winter appeal! Funding for the arts continues to dissipate and corporate funding would never allow us to sit in our own driver's seat. So we look to you- our community. Know someone whose activist motor is stalled? How about revving them up by donating a gift on their behalf? Donate $500 and you'll receive a SFMT classic tee- a perfect holiday gift! Your donation will keep us on the road so we can keep you out of sinkholes! Read on and donate!

"Central Works serves up the laughs in this delicious take on a circle of sweet old grandmotherly bakers, who just happen to be fervent revolutionaries. But baking pies and cakes isn't enough to satisfy these four intrepid refugees from the '60's (and 50's, and '40's), and their burning desire to "Up the Revolution!"

Oct 18-Nov 23 at Central Works.

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.
