based on Charles Dickens’ a christmas carol
adapted for the stage by Michael Gene Sullivan
musical direction and original lyrics by Daniel Savio
"Infusing Dickens’ with sentiments more closely aligned
with Eugene V. Debs and Joe Hill, A Red Carol is a delight
for the anti-Trump culture that divides America down
the middle.” - BroadwayWorld

After 35 years the mural on the san francisco Mime
Troupe’s building has been restored!
Lead by Famed artist Juana Alícia and supported by a community of artists, actors, organizers, art lovers, and core team of Mime Troupe General Manager Ellen Callas, San Francisco Heritage's Kerri Young, and Mime Troupe Board Member, Susan Segal, with the fiscal sponsorship of the restoration by Brava for Women in the Arts.
Thank you to all who were involved in keeping this amazing mural alive and vibrant in the heart of the mission district!

SFMT Mission Statement
Founded in 1959, SFMT’s Mission is to create and produce socially relevant theater through original stories that make audiences feel the impact of political events on their personal lives. Our aim is to create work that crosses racial and national borders, that by its very existence sustains a vision of a multicultural, multinational community.
The San Francisco Mime Troupe is able to continue performing for FREE in the parks due to the generous contributions from community members like YOU! Please take a moment to throw some money into our virtual hats so you don't have to exchange any germy money with us.
Thank you for helping us continue our necessary work!
The SFMT does NOT take corporate sponsorship! So, we very much appreciate all of the wonderful folks who have chosen a giving circle through which to become members of the Mime Troupe family!
