Review for MOSAIC YOUTH THEATER OF DETROIT, Detroit, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a former member of Mosaic I understand how the FREE training they provide impacts the lives of youth in the Metro-Detroit area. I not only gained valuable theatrical experince, but the techniques I learned (such as memorization and speaking from my diaphragm) have helped me in just about every aspect of my life. I proudly support all they do and am glad to see their great work continue!

How would you describe the help you got from this organization?

Life-changing

How likely are you to recommend this organization to a friend?

Definitely

How do you feel you were treated by this organization?

Very Well

How did you find this group?

I do not remember how I first heard about Mosaic, but a former member told me about the auditions.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

Wow, where do I begin? Mosaic gave me a true appreciation of good theatre; but more importantly, we contributed to the writing of the initial production of heartBEAT. The play is basically about the struggle between Love & Hate. Participating in that process has helped me deal with those emotions throughout my life. I was also fortunate to see the musical Rent for this first time through Mosaic (because I was old enough to handle the themes and issues); which taught me that (sometimes) there is "no day but today", and is something I carry with me throughout my daily life.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2011

Role:  Client Served & I played the part of Trygeus in the original production of heartBEAT (1997-1998 Acting Ensemble).
