The Davis Musical Theatre Company (DMTC) was founded in 1984 by Jan and Steve Isaacson (Davis residents since 1977), who, before founding their own company, had participated in productions by West of Broadway, Davis Players, the Davis Comic Opera Co., and other local groups.

DMTC produces six mainstage, Broadway-style musicals every year, now shown at their new DMTC Performing Arts Center.

The producers, board and committee members, actors, directors, stage managers, costumers, musicians, and other DMTC participants are volunteers. The only paid participant is the pianist, who receives a stipend.

Jan Isaacson also produces four musicals a year geared especially to children in DMTC's Young Performer's Theatre (YPT). The YPT showcases the talent of kids 7 to 18 years old. Please visit the DMTC website for show and audition information. The Davis Musical Theater Company gives out two scholarships each year to graduating high school seniors who have participated in DMTC Young Performers or main stage productions. DMTC is a non-profit corporation organized under IRS Rules 501(c)3


Special Event

Big Day of Giving (DoG) - May 6, 2014

http://www.dmtc.org/images/dropins/bigdogweb.jpg

A Chorus Line - Opening April 25, 2014

http://www.dmtc.org/images/logos/ACL-small.jpg A stunning Pulitzer-Prize winning musical, about a chorus audition for a Broadway musical. It tells of the achingly poignant ambitions of professional Broadway gypsies to land a job in the show, and is a powerful metaphor for all human aspiration. Memorable musical numbers include I Can Do That, At the Ballet, Dance: Ten; Looks: Three, Music and the Mirror, What I Did for Love, One (Singular Sensation) and I Hope I Get It. It is a brilliantly complex fusion of dance, song and compellingly authentic drama. The show was instantly recognized as a classic.

Young Performers' Theatre

The Emperor's New Clothes - Opening May 3, 2014

http://www.miramesatheatreguild.org/Images/Posters/empposter.jpg Two con-men "play the palace" in this breezy adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's well-known satirical tale. Mr. Stitch and Mr. Sew wreak havoc at Wits Ends Palace when they present the Emperor with a special gift: an exquisitely beautiful "magic" suit of clothes, invisible to all but the wisest of men. THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES is a charming exploration of the dangers of vanity, with a host of hilarious characters that includes a brassy, tap-dancing bugle-playing Empress. This Prince Street Players version has delighted audiences for over 50 years.

September 13, 2013-October 6, 2013

The Sacramento Regional Community Theater Premier of Monty Python's SPAMALOT!

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls?

November 8, 2013-December 1, 2013

Nothing entertains on stage like a well-crafted tale, and OLIVER! is just such a show. Based on the Charles Dickens novel, it engages you with its pathos and drama, while delighting you with its outstanding musical numbers. Food, Glorious Food, I’d Do Anything, Where is Love?, Consider Yourself, As Long As He Needs Me, Who Will Buy and Reviewing the Situation are musical theatre classics You will leave you saying ‘Please Sir, May I have some more?’.
Recommended for all ages.

2008-09-30 10:22:43   Young Performer's Theater continues with Footloose through October 12th. Visit www.dmtc.org for show dates and times.

The cast has really worked hard on this performance, and it's well worth seeing. —ArthurFrane


2010-03-08 06:24:23   Attended the DMTC production of "A year with Frog and Toad" this past weekend with the family. It was a packed house and the kids put on a great show that we all enjoyed tremendously. Tickets were reasonable, the location is easy to get to and this is an entertainment option that we will be pursing much more in the future. Worth the communities support —loneshark


2014-01-09 22:26:07   I discovered DMTC on Davis Wiki in March 2013 and was pleasantly surprised at the talent in the production I saw. I am constantly amazed at how accepting they are. Very disability friendly too! The 2013-2014 season is full of great shows, including Les Miserables and Cats. I expect next season, DMTC's 30th anniversary, to be just as great. The tickets are pretty low priced compared to others in the area (about $7 less). —GAvila
