San Francisco Mime Troupe
The members of the San Francisco Mime Troupe hardly fall into the Marcel Marceau camp; this is, thankfully, a no-pantomime zone. Rather, this group of political satirists performs broad musical comedy that spares no targets. Founded in 1959, it finds particular richness in election years, so brace yourself for some particularly pointed jabs. The troupe visits with three local shows, all to be performed outdoors. Check them out at one of three local shows. Friday, September 7, 8 p.m.; Miners Foundry Cultural Center, 325 Spring Street in Nevada City; $20. Saturday, September 8, 7 p.m.; Community Park, E. 14th and F streets in Davis; free admission. Sunday, September 9, 4 p.m.; Southside Park, Sixth and T streets; free admission; www.sfmt.org.
