Early Years and Beginnings
DMTC started as an idea from Jan Isaacson (co-founder and co-producer) in March of 1984, to produce musicals involving children, teens, adults and seniors, DMTC has evolved over the years.
It has a wonderfully successful Youth Program (YPT) and Main Stage program.
DMTC has entertained thousands, and has sent many to Broadway and professional theater.
After producing Peter Pan
(1984), The King & I
(1985), and Fiddler on the Roof
(Summer 1985), DMTC built its first facility at 2121-2nd Street, in Davis.
The facility opned with Meredith Willson's The Music Man
on October 18, 1985, with folding chairs, no heat, no air-conditioning and no insulation in the building.
It was a tough first winter! this continued until February 1993 with its last production at 2121 2nd St of 42nd Street
The Varsity Years
In Oct 1992, the City of Davis finished a remodel on the old Varsity movie theater at 616-2nd St in downtown Davis.
Mayor David Rosenberg wanted live downtown entertainment and came up with a brilliant idea.
They had a facility with no tenant, and DMTC, having its absentee landlord raising the rent to $7,000 per month, was a tenant with no facility...it was a match made in fiscal heaven.
DMTC produced On the Twentieth Century
in Feb 1993 at its new home in the Varsity Theater, 616-2nd St, Davis
In 2005, DMTC opened the Hoblit Performing Arts Center at 607 Pena Drive in Davis.
This beautiful 238 seat facility features wonderful acoustics as well as a full orchestra pit for up to 20 musicians.
There is a large lobby and spacious rest rooms as well as a large parking lot.
DMTC also has an excellent online ticketing system developed by Centerstage Software (Bruce Rowe and php programmer Ben DruShell), that allows the patron to choose any particular seat they wish and have the tickets emailed to them with no service charge
