Hi. We're The Mix. We're a theatre company. But, we're not like other companies, because this one is flat. Here's what that means:

In a flat company, innovators, thinkers, dreamers, schemers, and all kinds of talented people come together to work on projects. These projects are all modular, so they are not controlled by one entity, or confined to one location.

Say one of us wants to play Hamlet. We think that's super great, and we want to help them do that. So, they call everyone in The Mix who is nearest to them and see if there is an interest. Some of us will act, some will direct, some will promote, etc. We can do this because working in The Mix means that any one of us can do it all, and do it all well. If someone needs us as a poster designer, we are just as capable of doing that as if they had asked one of us to play Horatio.

Once we have as many people from The Mix as we can, we bring in people from outside the company to do whatever else we need them to. Now that the project is underway, it's the creator's to do with what they will. They are their own boss, and for the time being, the producer of this project. Whomever started it now makes sure it finishes with the same spirit it began.

Now say one of us has written a play and wants it performed immediately. Well, all they have to do is start the project, assemble their team, and make good art.

If they want to direct? They start the project, assemble their team, and make good art.

It's really that simple.

Production History

As You Like It  | Open: 05/24/13 Close: 05/31/13
Join the Mix Theatre Company for its inaugural production of Shakespeare's classic pastoral comedy, 'As You Like It,' which tells the story of a lovestruck Rosalind, who flees her dukedom when she is banished by her jealous uncle. Deep in the forest of Arden and disguised as a boy, she seeks to win the heart of the noble young Orlando (with the help of her cousin, a clown, and a few lovesick shepherds). Between the designs of her uncle and Orlando's wicked elder brother, the odds are against them - but with luck and no small amount of wit, they might just manage a happily ever after.

Come out to the Sonnet Theatre (http://www.producersclub.com/sonnet.html) and enjoy an evening of romance and revelry, misunderstandings and mistaken identities - and what's more, have the play performed in the style of your choice. Each night the audience will choose a classical or modern rendition of the play; but either way you won't be disappointed. 

May 24th-25th and 28th-31st: 8 pm
May 26th: 2 pm
