Fasten your seatbelts for another wild yet thought-provoking ride with the world-renowned San Francisco Mime Troupe, with the ensemble’s annual new musical addressing contemporary America. Prepare for laughter, tragedy, snappy dialogue, and live music.

In Freedomland, young Nathaniel returns from serving in Afghanistan only to find another war zone at home. Meanwhile the Mayor and the Police Chief – one desperate for votes, the other desperate to fund his militarized police force – ramp up the fear (and their shiny new tank) to fight the newest, drug threat to America… worse than weed, meth, coke, crack, or crank, it’s… SNORF!!

Pre-show music at 1:30pm.
