In Memoriam
Earl Crabb

May 31 Memorial @ Freight & Salvage

We are sorry to share the sad news of the passing of Earl Crabb longtime Trouper, friend and Treasurer of our Board of Directors. Earl has been a part of our greater artistic family since his time working with our comrades at the Pickle Family Circus years ago. Earl was not only a positive supporter of our collective efforts but as a skilled photographer, documented Troupe and Pickles projects and events for decades. Likable and good humored, Earl was a truly kind man who always chose helpful rather than harsh words. He was a gentleman in every way and we feel the loss. Our hearts go out to his wife Giselle and his family.

Earl Crabb
Earl it was an honor knowing you.

Summer Internships

Summer Workshop

Application deadlines are April 13, 2015!

Winter Appeal!

In order to realize our 2015 plans we need to raise $45,000 from this winter appeal! As of Jan 23 we are $7,000 short, but sooo close! 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 anytime during the Winter Appeal and we will send you a free t-shirt! Your donation will keep us on the road so we can keep you out of sinkholes! Read on and donate!

Mud Time Theater

Mud Time Poster

Steve Friedman and Denny Partridge met in 1970 as fellow-members of the SFMT's first collective. They moved east together in1976 and spent the next 30 years creating, performing and teaching popular theater in New York City and around the world. Since 2006 they've lived in Vermont, where they collaborate as Mud Time Theater. On May 10 & 11 they'll bring two of their teeny two-person plays to the Mime Troupe studio: MILDRED TAKEN CRAZY and THE NINE QUESTIONS. They hope all their old pals and comrades, and anyone else who's interested, will come and see what they've been reduced to. The two plays concern disturbing episodes from Vermont history; their style is epic minimalism. Warning: The plays may upset young children, but are fine for a Mother's Day outing.

        When: Sunday May 10th at 2.00pm & Monday May 11th @ 8.00p
        Where: 855 Treat Ave (limited street parking)
        Running time: 75 minutes
        Suggested Donation: $10

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.
