Founded
1984

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 their new 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

MEL BROOKS' YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN - September 25 - October 4, 2020

Young Frankenstein

 

 

MEL BROOKS' - YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN

A LIVE, VIRTUAL PRODUCTION!

 

All performances will be presented FREE via Zoom over Facebook Live.

 

It's alive! The electrifying adaptation of Mel Brooks' monstrously funny film will leave you in stitches.

 

Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced "Fronk-en-steen") inherits his family's estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced "Eye-gore"), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. "It's alive!" he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather's. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds.

Every bit as relevant to audience members who will remember the original as it will be to newcomers, Young Frankenstein has all the of panache of the screen sensation with a little extra theatrical flair added. It will surely be the perfect opportunity for a production company to showcase an array of talents. With such memorable tunes as "The Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz," Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven, monstrously good entertainment.

The Sound Of Music

When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time.

Directed by Jan Isaacson
Choreographed by Jan Isaacson

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
