Motor City Youth Theatre is a professional theatre company and was founded in 1990 by Fred and Nancy Florkowski as
The Redford Youth Theatre, under the umbrella of South Redford Schools.
The company later moved to the Detroit Masonic Temple where it was sponsored by the Scottish Rite Masons.
It was then that the name was changed to Motor City Youth Theatre.
In 2005 MCYT found its own home in an old VFW hall in Livonia, where it has created a beautfful off-Broadway style theatre.
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 teamwork;
To offer high quality theatrical productions to the community.
Motor City Adult Players is an extension of MCYT.
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.
