Only the Best 20: Years of Mosaic Memories in Detroit

The talented Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit presents a fun retrospective of various fan favorite shows from over the years Dec. 14-16, 2012

For two decades, the tweens and teens of Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit have shredded the stage with their acting and singing chops. To celebrate this milestone, the talented troupe pulls out the stops with Only the Best: 20 Years of Mosaic Memories, playing Dec. 14-16 at the Detroit Film Theatre, located in the Detroit Institute of Arts.

This retrospective showcases bits from memorable past shows. Highlighted favorites include Crossing 8 Mile, Everybody's Talking, Hastings Street, Magnificat, What Fools These Mortals Be and Now That I Can Dance, a musical about the early days of Motown when the artists on the label were between ages 12 and 21 – the same as Mosaic's performers. "Only the Best gives audiences an understanding of the diversity, energy and empowerment of Mosaic's theatrical and musical art," the group says in a statement.

If you've never seen a Mosaic show, it's also a perfect introduction to the troupe, organizers say. This action-packed spectacle is quite the revue, billed as a "nostalgic theatrical journey."

Created in 1992, Mosaic serves as an artistic home for young actors, singers and stage technicians. Now, more than 165 kids from over 50 schools participate each year, with many going on to further their education and careers after high school.

Show times for Only the Best are 8 p.m. Dec. 14-15 (Friday and Saturday) and 4 p.m. Dec. 15 (Sunday). Tickets costs are $22/adults and $15/students and seniors.
