This year the focus of the annual fundraising event will be on celebrating 25 years of the acclaimed Youth Theater Project (YTP) - where the SFMT brings students from under-served communities together, and give them the skills to create, direct, and perform their own stories, helping them be the next generation of activist/artists we will look toward in the future.

Directly following the fundraiser on Sat. March 13, 2021, from 2:00 - 3:30 pm PST, the SFMT will be commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the Youth Theater Project with an online production highlighting new works by the YTP 2021 teen artists and a special retrospective video celebrating 25 years of SFMT's youth arts education.

The Red Star at the End of the Tunnel event is an opportunity to learn more about the SFMT who for over 60 years has been speaking truth to power, and to learn more about this most unique of people's theatre that performs free political musical comedies, tragedies, and farces, and their plans to overthrow capitalism, injustice, and oppression - one musical comedy at a time.
