MCYT Bard Bums is a professional level acting company, comprised of youth actors who are in grades, 4-12. Motor City Youth Theatre (est. 1990) began its Shakespeare for Families program in 2005, with its premier production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, featuring a mixed cast of adults and children. 

MCYT's Shakespeare for Families has performed Hamlet, The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Production of Macbeth, and The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged, with adults as well as youth productions of Hamlet, Macbeth, The Tempest,  and two productions of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

In 2015/16 the name, MCYT Bard Bums, was given to a well-deserving youth cast that offered eight performances of the full version of A Midsummer Night's Dream, including a performance at the Wayne State University Hilberry Studio Theatre.
