Mimes Making Music?
Mateel Press Release: San Francisco Mime Troupe Returns To Mateel On July 30th
On Saturday, July 30th, the Mateel Community Center in Redway will host the Tony Award-winning San Francisco Mime Troupe, who will present their latest theatrical work, 2012- The Musical!, a lively satire about corporate funding and the art of mass distraction. The play tells the tale of a small political theatre company, Theater BAM!, who find themselves at a crossroads- should they keep telling the stories they feel can change the world (and starve while telling them) or feed at the trough, sell out, and be the mouthpiece for The Man? Tough decision. So when they are offered a commission from a “green” corporation that could save BAM!, the company is very tempted. All they have to do is create a new show, 2012- The Musical!. But is it political? Will it keep with the company’s original mission? And who’s really bankrolling the production?
To find out, don’t miss San Francisco Mime Troupe in 2012- The Musical!. Admission is at the door only for a price of $18 MCC members and $20 general. Doors open at 6:30pm with a gourmet dinner available for purchase. The Mime Troupe band plays a set of live music beginning at 7:30pm and the performance starts at 8:00.
