The mission of the Mixed Magic Theatre Exult Choir is to preserve and celebrate the great American tradition of gospel music. Each year since 2006 the choir has presented a concert event that features a collection of songs that include Negro spirituals, traditional hymns, and the gospel music that has influenced blues, rhythm and blues, and rock music. The concert also features selections from the world music genre including songs made popular by the Soweto Gospel Choir of South Africa. This year’s concert,Shakespeare in the Spirit, blends gospel music to scenes from Shakespeare and both soar to new and unique heights.
Go ahead. Believe in magic.

From Artistic Director Jonathan Pitts-Wiley:
Like most non-profit arts organizations, Mixed Magic Theatre's continued success depends upon grants and generous donations along the way. We believe in affordable prices for the community at large, paying our bills on time and paying the talented men and women who grace our stage whenever possible. As with any organization, there have been lean times in the past and there may be lean times in the future. Mixed Magic Theatre was able to keep its door open by sheer force of will, a few dedicated (and possibly crazy) souls and generosity of people who believe in building more literate, arts-active communities. This is where our magic begins and it is vital that it continue.
