Discover Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit!

Mosaic is a non-profit creative youth development organization committed to enhancing the social, emotional, artistic, and academic development of young people via transformative artistic experiences in the city of Detroit, abroad, and now online!!

In our nearly 30 year history, Mosaic has uplifted the lives of hundreds of young people, ages 7 to 18, with professional performing arts training (Acting, Singing, and Technical Theatre), and performances that engage, transform and inspire audiences and participants.

Mosaic’s all-teen performances have toured to Africa, Asia, Europe, and 25 states and provinces throughout the U.S.A and Canada. Mosaic young artists have performed at the Public Theatre, the historic Apollo Theater in New York City, won several international and national awards, and have been the opening act for legends such as Maya Angelou, Aretha Franklin, Al Green, The Temptations, Harry Belafonte, Sweet Honey in the Rock, John Legend and toured with Josh Groban.

Alumni of Mosaic have been nominated for Tony, Emmy, and Grammy awards. In 2019 alumna Celia Keenan-Bolger was Mosaic’s first Tony award winner for To Kill A Mockingbird! Alumni have also made their mark in law, education, banking, social work, television, and film. 

But more than any of these accomplishments, we are most proud of the fact that in our 28+yrs of programming 95% of Mosaic youth ensemble members have gone on to college. 

Join the journey!
Mosaic is welcoming youth entering grades 7-12 to audition to join our award-winning pre-professional Acting Company and Mosaic Singers AND youth entering grades 8-12 to join our Backstage Tech ensemble.
