The Mixed Blood Theatre Company is a professional multiracial theatre company in Minneapolis, Minnesota.[1] It was founded in 1976 by artistic director Jack Reuler. Its core stated values are promoting cultural pluralism, individual equality, and artistic excellence.

Its plays range from intimate chamber theatre to political satires. The theatre presents over 500 performances annually in the Alan Page Auditorium of its historic firehouse theatre, as well as in schools, churches, community centers, juvenile detention centers, and workplaces.

Mixed Blood's "Radical Hospitality" program provides no-cost access to all mainstage productions for any audience member. An expansion of Mixed Blood’s egalitarian mission, Radical Hospitality erases economic barriers in pursuit of building a truly inclusive, global audience.

Mixed Blood Theatre was the first company to use the Joe Dowling Studio in the Guthrie Theater with its play Yellowman.[2] Mixed Blood is a member of Theatre Communications Group (TCG) and the National New Play Network (NNPN).
