Mixed Blood’s Programming on TV

Posted on February 4, 2012


Mixed Blood annually serves 75,000 people through regional tours of 5-7 shows, our mainstage season of new plays, and our On the Job program, a series of customized theatre productions that provoke awareness and provide skill-building opportunities that help employees and workplaces confront barriers to personal and business success. Two aspects of our programming will be on television this weekend and we’re so excited to share the news!

During our year-long partnership with local health-care service provider, Health Partners, we created four original films that revealed a range of health-care inequalities that members in our diverse community have experienced. The films will be shown in an upcoming series on Twin Cities Public Television’s MNChannel entitled “Healthy Acts: Setting a New Course”. The series will premiere on Sunday, February 5th @ 8PM. If you miss Sunday’s broadcast you can watch it on the web here or catch the program at the following times:

Our season-opening production of Neighbors attracted a lot of attention! One patron took our call to “actively engage in our work” to a new level by creating a documentary about the show. Ralph Crowder, director and producer of the docuementary, will air the film through his company Freedom Radio. Freedom Radio News & Culture Television Network is a new form of broadcast media directed at all aspects of art, education, dance, music, sports, poetry, fashion, film, headline news and events shaping Urban America’s local or national conversation. Freedom Radio Programming engages a diverse viewing audience primarily focused on issues concerning the African American Community.

Freedom Radio’s episode that includes the Neighbors documentary will be aired in Minneapolis (Comcast Cable, Ch. 17, MTN) starting today at noon and will repeat at various times (for program listings call 612-331-8575). The first St. Paul (Comcast Cable, Ch. 15, SPNN) broadcast will begin at 7:00 PM and will repeat Sundays at noon.

So set your DVRs and get ready to check out some really great programming!
