By From page A7 | August 07, 2014

Davis Musical Theatre Company — Northern California’s longest-running, year-round, amateur musical theater company — celebrates its 30th anniversary with a gala event at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 23, at 607 Peña Drive.

Tickets are $30 each and include a light dinner followed by an evening of entertainment by past and present performers.

DMTC was founded in 1984 by Jan and Steve Isaacson, whose goal was to preserving the classic American musical as an art form. The company has been a proving and training ground for amateur theatrical performers, directors, choreographers, musicians and technicians.

DMTC produces six Main Stage musicals and five Young Performers Theatre musicals each year — a total of more than 100 performances.

The YPT — for performers aged 7-18 — was founded in 1988. In addition to five productions each year, the program also offers a training workshop each summer focusing on acting, singing and dancing for musical theater and culminates in a recital at the end of the program.

DMTC attracts audiences from all across the region. DMTC’s theatergoers come from Yolo, Solano and Sacramento counties as well as the Bay Area, Northern California and the Central Valley. More than 20,000 people each year enjoy the productions.

Additionally, DMTC has a strong commitment to making the performing arts accessible to all. Ticket prices are as low as possible and prices are discounted for seniors and students.

In order to keep ticket costs low, DMTC is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization from the board of directors down. In total, more than 300 individuals participate in DMTC productions each year.
