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 main stage, Broadway-style musicals every year, now shown at the Jean Henderson 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 Performers' 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.
Main Stage Production
Oklahoma! - November 3 - 26, 2023
THE 80TH ANNIVERSARY OF OKLAHOMA!
Underwritten by Betty J. Paro, in Remembrance of Tom Paro
March 31, 1943, was a day that changed the face of musical theatre forever. Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today (The first show in history, where dance advanced the plot). Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. This new love and new life together will begin in a brand-new state that provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant Oklahoma!

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
