DMTC was started in 1984 as a group where community members and families could come together and produce quality musical theater. DMTC is an all-volunteer community theatre which serves as a training ground for children and adults with an interest in performing arts. Our Main Stage produces 6 musicals per season in which children, teens and adults come together to work as performers, artists, technicians, musicians and support staff on an all-volunteer basis. Our Young Performers' Theater is a training ground for students ages 7-17 to perform, work as technicians and orchestra members in four shows during the regular season as well as a summer workshop and show. Family involvement is a built-in part of our YPT structure - with 'parent-hours' and lots of opportunities for families to help out. It is common, in our Main Stage, to have multiple generations of family performing, playing in the orchestra and working as technicians on shows.
DMTC's greatest need is for on-going grants and underwriting as well as individual donations to support our ability to produce quality, affordable shows and maintain and improve our facility. We are currently focused on making several improvements to our facility that will greatly benefit our patrons - we have plans to improve the acoustics and lighting of our performance space, as well as install a hearing assistance system. We keep our overhead costs as low as possible by being all volunteer from the Board down (except for our pianists who get a small stipend). Everyone - directors, designers, choreographers, performers, musicians, technical staff - all volunteer their time. Our greatest per-show costs that need to be covered are royalties, set costs and costumes - these can average between $5,000 to $10,000 per show.
Our top needs:
  1. Funding: Program - Main Stage and Youth productions
  2. Funding: Unrestricted - General operating budget
  3. In-Kind Donations - constructions materials, costumes, concessions, etc
  4. Technology - laptops, and sound and light equipment
  5. Volunteers - construction volunteers and general help
Davis Musical Theatre Company (DMTC) is committed to continue to provide a safe, nurturing space for all ages to further the collaborative art form of live theater. With over 40 kids sent to Broadway to start careers and continue the groundwork that was laid down by DMTC, I as co-producer and Executive Director, am proud of the work we have done over the past 33 years, and will continue to do in the future.
