Mosaic Youth Theatre
Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit is an internationally acclaimed youth development program that concentrates on helping young artists excel.
Mosaic’s mission is to empower young people to maximize their potential through professional performing arts training and the creation of theatrical and musical art that engages, transforms and inspires.
Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit, founded by Rick Sperling in 1992, was born out of a need to fill the gaps in arts education in Metro Detroit schools while providing an artistic home for young actors, singers and stage technicians. Serving only 25 young artists without any budget or home in its inaugural year, Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit is now recognized as a highly regarded cultural treasure for the city of Detroit and Southeast Michigan. Mosaic’s national and international touring performances bring recognition to Detroit as a center for arts and culture and promote a positive image of metro Detroit area youth.
Even though Mosaic students are disproportionately minority and from low-income families, 95% of Mosaic’s Youth Ensemble members graduate from high school and go on to college, which is dramatically above the national average for young people of similar backgrounds.
Each year more than 165 youth from over 50 different schools benefit from involvement in Mosaic’s Youth Ensemble and Intermediate Training Programs. An additional 1000 youth participate in Mosaic’s First Stage programs within schools and community centers throughout Metro Detroit. Through these training programs, Mosaic is developing talented young artists and new, diverse audiences for the performing arts.
