Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit means a lot to me. Even though I am no longer in the company, I try to stay in touch with as many people as possible. When I was in the company, I learned so much about the demands of being an actor: you will constantly be auditioning, performing and receiving candid and realistic criticism from people around you. Mosaic gives you that REAL experience! I have been involved in numerous acting classes, workshops, casting calls--but none of them can compare to the demands of Mosaic. We not only learn but we do, we perform. I am so very grateful that this organization is provided to the youth in the Detroit area. Mosaic is very unyielding on all of its young artists, its not some typical after-school drama club, it is a youth developmental organization, through the arts. Mosaic not only prepares you for life as an actor or a singer, be also life itself. I have recommended this organization to numerous people and when they receive the Mosaic experience--its truly life changing.

Hopefully Mosaic can get the funding to improve the rehearsal space we use. We could get acting studios and do camera work. Maybe even add a dance program! Otherwise, the program is excellent!

We hosted a summer gathering to honor and raise awareness to this incredible organization. The kids involved with this organization are not just talented, they are the future leaders of our community. The opportunity that Detroit Mosaic allows, prepares these young people for success in so many ways. The self-confidence, self-awareness, group work ethic all vital traits needed for the renaissance of our fair city and for the nation as a whole.

The Mosaic Youth Theater of Detroit is a wonderful program that allows students the opportunity to receive professional training and experience in the theatre arts. The majority of Mosaic's singers and actors are inner-city students with little or no arts opportunities in their schools. Mosaic welcomes and encourages diversity and focuses on educating and strengthening the talents of these individuals as well as entertaining the community and presenting elements of American and Detroit history through the many original productions they exhibit.

The Great!

seeing the confidence gained by the young artists. The young artists learn how to work and perform with their peers and treat each other with respect and compassion. It is inspiring to watch these students grow through Mosaic's program and graduate with a strong sense of self, great appreciation of the arts, and a confidence to pursue their dreams.

encourage more community involvement and make their presence even stronger. I believe that more schools need to be aware of Mosaic's program and present the opportunity to students in the suburbs who would greatly benefit from the experience.

The amazingly talented group of young people sing, dance and have comedic acting skills far beyond many professional adults. I have experienced their performances on more than one occassion and have been brought to tears and laughed out loud. Their performances are a gift each and everytime to their audience.

My husband and I have been attending performances of the Mosaic Youth Theatre for approximately ten years, and have become very familiar with its operatons. The level of professionalism and discipline achieved by the children and young adults who participate in this program is truly astounding, and we are constantly amazed by the standards of excellence that are consistently and successfully demanded of them by the directors and staff. The skills the participants gain obviously carry over into their later life. Approximately 95% go on to college. In an inner city plagued with poverty, drugs, etc., this achievement is astounding.

It works so well, I could suggest no changes. I am sure they consistent and constant funding would make their life easier and make them available to a greater number of participants.
