San Francisco Mime Troupe presents "The Ripple Effect"

The Arena Theater welcomes the San Francisco Mime Troupe for a performance of "The Ripple Effect."  Done in their characteristic quick-change, singing & dancing, Commedia dell'Arte political style, a cast of four, playing multiple characters, tell the story of three very different women, all at a critical life point, who find themselves in a boat on San Francisco Bay, brought together by chance. Although they perceive each other as "different", each is a member of the working class and has been betrayed by a system that rewards only the few motivated solely by greed and self-interest.  As they tell their stories, they discover through their failed hopes and aspirations they are more similar than they thought and are connected in ways never imagined. In solidarity, they refuse to let their home town fall into the hands of those who have no heart for it. Their actions will have a positive Ripple Effect.  Doors open at 7:00pm, music starts at 7:30pm, performance starts at 8:00pm.  Tickets are $18 general admission, $15 for Arena Theater Film Club members (with card), and only $10 for ages 17-and-under.  Check out the San Francisco Mime Troupe online for more information.
