Today is #GivingTuesday!
Thank you to those who have already donated to our winter appeal. But if you haven't yet, what better way then on #GivingTuesday!

This year we purchased an improved sound system which made it possible for the actors to be heard and understood. Perhaps as a result, we saw a boost in hat donations at shows. But unfortunately, we raised much less in our critically important summer appeal. We need to raise $50,000 during our winter appeal. Please donate as generously as you can and keep us moving forward with our plans to stay busy performing, teaching, touring and working for a just future for all. Read on and donate!

Donate $328.50 to help us pay back Inkworks before they close their doors at the end of the year. 
Donate $525 and Karen Runk can be paid for summer website upkeep. 
Donate $1896 and Michael Gene Sullivan can be paid the remaining amount due for writing this past summer's award winning show, Freedomland!

We also accept checks made out to SFMT / mailed to:

Meanwhile, we are busy beginning a strategic planning process. This requires us to redefine our goals and establish a sustainable business plan that will support those goals into the future. A large part of this depends on gathering information from you. Please fill out a survey and answer with as much honest detail as possible. We need to hear from you.

SFMT Holiday Party - Everyone is invited!
Truck and us
Is the annual contradiction of a season of family and togetherness turned into a celebration of gluttony and consumerism driving you to rebellion?
