The San Francisco Mime Troupe tours throughout California and nationally in the fall (September through November). Each year, the company creates a new political, musical satire based on current events. The show premieres in Dolores Park in San Francisco and tours locally throughout the summer. By fall, it is a well-oiled machine and we can bring the full show directly to you.

In tandem with the mainstage show, the Tony Award-winning San Francisco Mime Troupe offers a package of residency activities varying in length and focus, which bring our performance style and activist mission to groups of all kinds ranging from youth centers to activist organizations and from college theater programs to labor unions. Members of the company have taught numerous workshops nationally and internationally and have helped create dozens of community plays in the U.S. and abroad.

"Anyone concerned about the state of global politics-- and about the state of political humor -- should listen to the Mime troupe's message."
