To enrich the lives of youth through participation in dance, music, visual arts, theatre workshops and main stage productions;
To facilitate youth’s development of life skills such as problem solving, decision-making and team work;
To offer high quality theatrical productions to the community.
 Children with special needs are also included as equals in MCYT programs and productions.  Unlike most programs that audition and accept only the most talented children, MCYT accepts all children and guides them toward becoming creative and talented leaders who advance to adult theatre programs and other professions.


Motor City Youth Theatre Bard Bums spend 100 hours studying full Shakespeare plays before performing them. This year's production was Romeo and Juliet Meet the Hatfields and the McCoys.

It was so much fun that we plan to produce it again. This time we'll add more of the Hatfield's and McCoy's story!

MCYT Bard Bums will be re-working this playful and sometimes tragic production that reveals interesting parallels between the four feuding families. More Hatfields and McCoys, and less Romeo and Juliet back stories. More fun for everyone!

Watch  for us in the spring/summer of 2019
Tickets will be available at the door and at EVENTBRITE (with additional fee).

​Motor City Youth Theatre's recent productions were a great success!
Directed by Kelly Boczek Petrie
based on the book by Delia Ephron
This musical romp through the joys and sorrows of being a child includes twenty-three
lessons in such subjects as how to beg for a dog, how to torture your sister, and how
to act after being sent to your room. The pace is fast, the tone subversive, and the fun
never stops.

Directed by Nancy Florkowski
Book: Vera Morris, Music and Lyrics by Bill Francoeur
This engaging adaptation of the classic story of Sara Crewe by Frances Hodgson Burnett includes a touching and beautiful score that adds a magical touch to this enchanting show.
Be a princess for a day!  
 “Little Princess Tea” and show was a sweet event, with princesses as young as two years old.
