Mixed Blood Theatre's entertaining, eye-opening productions brilliantly spotlight the pluralistic threads of the American cultural fabric.
Easy to arrange and accommodate, these productions promote inclusion, pluralism, and individual equality, showing live theater as a vehicle for change. Equally effective for an audience of young people in a gym, college students in a commons area, families at a library, or longtime theater-goers in a million dollar concert hall, Mixed Blood's touring repertory has proven over three decades to be consistently affirming for some, eye-opening for others, and entertaining for all.
