The San Francisco Mime Troupe is Back in Berkeley This Weekend

Tuesday July 12, 2011 - 05:36:00 PM

The San Francisco Mime Troupe's 2011 summer show opened as usual in Dolores Park over the July 4th weekend, played its first Berkeley engagement at Cedar Rose Park in Berkeley last weekend, and now has added a Berkeley show on Saturday at Willard Park (aka Ho Chi Minh to old lefties). The new date is Berkeley's gain and Southern California's loss, because a planned run down south fell victim to a construction delay in the scheduled venue. 

This year's production recounts the trials and tribulations of a radical theater troupe trying to keep its soul in the face of unexpected funding cuts. Sound familar? Check it out Saturday at 2:00. The award-winning music gets going at 1:30. Admission is free, but bring some money, because they pass the hat, vigorously, at the end of the show.
