San Francisco Mime Troupe’s “Treasure Island” The Musical | 2019

The Tony Award-winning San Francisco Mime Troupe continues its 60th season with more free and lively performances in park settings around the Bay Area with their 2019 production “Treasure Island” The Musical – A Toxic Tale of Corporate Corsairs, Swashbuckling Swindlers, and Big Buck Buccaneers on the Bay.

San Francisco Mime Troupe | 2019
Free political theater & music in parks all over the Bay Area

Various dates: July 4 – Sept. 8, 2019
SF, Berkeley, Oakland, Palo Alto, and more
FREE (donations requested)

Founded in 1959, the San Francisco Mime Troupe creates and produces socially relevant theater; despite the name “mime,” their work is not pantomime, but live musical comedy and political satire.

About Treasure Island: The Musical

Treasure Island – is it the mythical isle where untold wealth awaits marauding pirates, or the freezing cold, artificial island in the middle of San Francisco Bay awaiting cut-throat developers? Or is it both?

That’s the question for Jill Hawkins when an old sea-dog of a developer drops anchor in her office at City Hall, and drops a mystery in her lap. “Developers…they scour the map looking for cities with fat purses, ready to be plundered, damn the regulations!”

But if Treasure Island is such a wonderful opportunity why has no one developed it yet…? What about the people who live there now? And who is the one-legged developer Hawkins was warned about?
