As a primary goal of the organization is to provide all people with opportunities to experience the performing arts, with support from KARMA*,
this Blueprint organization-sponsored show is pay what you want!
Which can be as low as, well… free!


“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles one has overcome…”
— Booker T. Washington

Obstacles and odds are a part of life, sure.
But they don’t have to stop you…
If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up; figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it!

Blueprint’s fall show places focus on just that: overcoming the odds.
Standing up to obstacles, and finding that they haven’t half the strength you think they have!
(and boy, have we all had to deal with those!)

What’s included in climbing those mountains, do you ask? How about…

Avril Lavigne’s Keep Holding On
Toto’s Africa
Sia’s Alive
David Bowie and Queen’s Under Pressure
• Once and For All
from Newsies
Shaw’s The Road Not Taken
Soft Place to Land from Waitress

and of course…

• Sia’s Titanium

And many more (powerful) songs!

So take a trip up the mountain with Blueprint for a hurdle-leaping and odds-defying good time!
