Welcome to the brand new way we’ll be sharing everything happening at Mixed Blood. We created this new format with the intention of better serving all, with a platform that’s more inclusive, easier to engage in, and just downright pretty.

Here’s one example: on most of our content, you’ll start to see [image: text]. This is one way folks with diminished or lost vision can understand the visual content of our website. For the image above, we describe it as:

Take a look at all of the goodness below and let us know your thoughts. If you have feedback on how we can continue to make our website even better, we’re all ears.

Now let’s dive in.

Extraordinary times

The world is run by those who show up.

These are extraordinary times.

So we’ve chosen to do something out of the ordinary: three plays in rep.

Each play can easily stand on its own; each is raw, insightful, eloquent; each will empower, challenge, and entertain.

Together, they tell one narrative befitting the times:

A journey that reminds us that tragedy isn’t the only reason to show up.

An experience of tension between knowing what is right, and knowing what is needed to survive.

A parable of our shared world, that demands witness to our shared humanity.

So show up for PRESCIENT HARBINGERS. Let’s run the world.

Fall is in the air

Thanks to the 2,264 Bloodites who joined us for Is God Is! 

This show; where do we begin?

With so many moments of raw devastation matched by ridiculous hilarity, it took everything we had not to send too many spoilers your way. Which is why all throughout the run, we teased this one scene:

You see, it’s not every day that you see a 400-pound wall free fall 5 feet in front of you.

But as surprising as we hope that scene was, we hope the messages of Is God Is resonates with everyone who joined us; messages that we hope challenged you and empowered you.

Way to show up.

Have a thought, reflection or picture from your time at Is God Is? Share it with us on our Facebook page; we’d love to continue the conversation with you.

Indeed We Can

We know beer isn’t for everyone. But let us tell you about Indeed Brewing.

We first became pals with them last spring, and since then they have been incredible partners.

From helping us think through offering beer & wine at Mixed Blood, to sponsoring Is God Is, we’ve got all the love for the work they do.

Which is why we’re so excited to join them on Wed, Nov 21 from 3 – 11 pm for Indeed We Can: one night where all the proceeds go to support Mixed Blood.

We want every Bloodite and every Bloodites’ friends to be there with us. So join the Facebook event and invite your pals.

Not a beer drinker? Even the proceeds from merchandise + NA beverages goes to support Mixed Blood!

Zealous Hellion: Ernie Hudson

In 43 years of Mixed Blood, we’ve shared with you a lot about our history.

But did you know, Ernie Hudson–the actor you’ll recognize as one of the original Ghostbusters and most recently from Netflix’s Grace & Frankie–was one of the reasons Mixed Blood began?

Hear that story and so many others when Ernie joins Jack on stage at Mixed Blood. He’ll be here Saturday, January 12 at 8 pm.

And while the post-holiday winter doldrums will be in full force, don’t let that get you down! Get your seats to Ernie when you join us as a Member starting at $9/month.
