A small political theater company - Theater BAM! - finds itself at a crossroads: should they keep telling the stories they feel can change the world (and starve while telling them), or feed at the corporate trough, and be a mouthpiece for The Man? Tough decision! But before having to make it, they are offered an artistic commission that may save the company; all they have to do is create a new play, "2012 - The Musical!" But is it political? Is it in line with the company's mission? What's the true purpose of this ridiculous production, and who's really bankrolling the thing? Find out the answers to these questions and more in this lively, skewering satire of corporate funding and the art of mass distraction.

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.

Along with The San Francisco Mime Troupe, other exciting FREE events include: Music on the Square on Fridays, Movies on the Square on Thursdays, and Dancing on the Square on Tuesdays. Other ongoing events in the coming months include seven special outdoor exhibits featuring Art on the Square, as well as weekend Target Family Days.
