The 4th Annual New Voices: Detroit Festival on August 12 Showcases
Short Plays and Songs from Next Generation Storytellers in 8th through 12th Grade
Detroit – Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit proudly presents the 4th Annual New Voices: Detroit Festival on August 12. This exciting event features original plays and compositions written by talented Detroit-area teens in grades 8-12.
Paired with industry professionals, young artists hone their skills, creating new works that will be showcased at prominent Detroit arts & culture venues. This year, Mosaic collaborates with Detroit Public Theatre to host the festival, scheduled for August 12 at 6pm.
“New Voices: Detroit goes beyond supporting young talents; it inspires the community and fosters vital conversations,” said DeLashea Strawder, Executive and Artistic Director of Mosaic. Participants develop artistic and life skills, enriching their communities with relevant arts experiences. The festival also plays a pivotal role in expanding diverse next-generation playwrights and composers for all audiences.
Metro-Detroit youth submitted their ideas this spring for a chance to join the paid summer intensive. Finalists, chosen earlier this summer, have worked diligently with coaches throughout July, fine-tuning their work before the August 12 premiere.
