50 Years of The San Francisco Mime Troupe

In October 2009, the production model of Spark changed, moving from a stand alone series of original programs to the production of Spark segments, which will be premiered throughout the year as part of the newly re-vamped This Week in Northern California.

In this segment, the San Francisco Mime Troupe celebrates 50 years of irreverent and thought-provoking political theater. The segment follows the Troupe as they mount a performance of their new musical comedy: "Too Big to Fail", and takes a look back at the group's incarnation and early years.

This Week Produced by Spark for This Week in Northern California.

[Original air date: Fri, Nov 13, 2009]

This program is not currently scheduled for broadcast.
