  • #BLACKLIVESMATTER

    The stage is a place for all voices to be heard, which is why theaters must speak out in this moment.  DMTC has always been committed to being supportive, inclusive, open and welcoming. We are committed to hearing and telling the stories of our community. Our diversity is our strength. We believe voices carry power, and today we raise ours in support of the fight against the racism and injustice that continues to plague our country. Racism should not have a place on the world’s stage, and it certainly does not have a place on our stage either. To our Black artists, patrons, volunteers and friends: your lives matter.

    Black Lives Matter.

     

  • The Board of Directors of Davis Musical Theatre Company, takes very seriously the health and safety of our patrons, performers, crew, orchestra and volunteers. We have closely followed all of the updates regarding COVID-19, and to protect all involved, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the rest of the run of Camelot. The dates of the remainder of our 2019-2020 shows are still unknown at this time, as almost all of California counties now have shelter in place. We were looking forward to bringing these productions to you, as we have for the past 35 years, and this decision was not made lightly.

    We are a nonprofit arts organization, and as with the rest of Regional nonprofit performing arts organizations, we rely on ticket sales, and donations to maintain operations, and present shows for our community. Loss of ticket revenue is a setback for this year’s season.

    If you have purchased tickets for CAMELOT (Main Stage) or JUNIE B JONES (Young Performers) or SCHOOL HOUSE ROCK (Young Performers), you may:

    1. Please consider converting the cost of your tickets to a donation to Davis Musical Theatre Company. All donations are tax-deductible and will assist DMTC during this difficult time. We will give you a donation letter for tax purposes upon request. (Federal Tax ID#: 68-0028068)
    2. Postpone your tickets to a later performance of YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN or TITANIC or JUNIE B JONES
    3. Receive a credit for a comparably priced ticket that will be good till the end of the next season (through July 18, 2021).

    Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

  • Godspell, junior Cast List posted

Young Performers' Theatre Current Production

Godspell, junior

September 18 - September 20, 2020

CAST LIST POSTED

The original Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award-winner, Stephen Schwartz, and it took the world by storm.  A group of disciples help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing.  With an eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage.  Jesus’ messages come vibrantly to life, touching audiences of all spiritual backgrounds with universal themes of kindness, love and tolerance.

In this virtual production, we will use technology and creativity to bring a sense of togetherness to what has been an isolating time.  While we cannot use the real stage, actors will perform elements of the show in real-time via live-stream broadcast to capture the “theatrical” experience.

Auditions (via zoom, 30 minutes)
July 27, 4:30-6:30
July 28, 4:30-6:00 

Please come prepared to sing 18-36 bars from a musical theater song(not from this show), but rather than provide us with sheet music, please provide your own accompaniment (either piano-track recording, or karaoke version from YouTube) to sing along with.  

Callbacks will be on Thursday July 30th (via zoom). Given the constraints of virtual callbacks, you will be provided with a piece of a song ahead of time (and the track) to perform at callbacks.  Maya can still "teach" it to the performer, but it will be better if you have a little time to familiarize yourselves with it due to the constraints of teaching on zoom. 

Rehearsals (online via zoom) will start on Aug 3rd to Sept 17th (the last week of that time will be tech week).  

Performances (online streaming live with songs pre-recorded, but some scenes will be done live at each performance) on Sept 18th @ 7pm, 19th @ 7 pm, and 20th @ 2 pm.

When you sign up, the audition forms will be emailed to you and to be returned prior to auditions or you can fill out the form and return it to Kristin Provost.

There will be no cost involved, except for the cost of the Godspell Jr.  t-shirt.  The shows will be recorded and available at no charge.

DMTC Fundraiser

Remember Mamma Mia!? The show was a lot of fun and I was really happy to be the sponsor in 2019.  In an effort to continue supporting the arts in Davis and sponsoring future performances, Iben Wilson, Realtor is setting up a fund raiser that only requires a half hour of your time to meet in person reviewing the value of your home.  You will receive a personalized folder that you can present to your tax advisor during tax season.

DMTC will receive $100 for each property review scheduled and presented.  The goal is meet with 50 patrons in the first quarter of 2020 so DMTC can receive a $5,000 sponsorship before the end of this year's season.

Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up.  I will send a follow up e-mail requesting address for the property review. Thank you for your
