Important Announcement

DTC has been struggling with the same dilemma facing every performing arts organization during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and the uncertainty surrounding existing public health concerns have made it difficult to imagine or plan an ordinary summer or fall.  Sadly, the DTC Board of Directors feels its best decision this year is to postpone Aladdin JR until early 2021 and cancel our production of You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown, which was planned at the Arts Barn Theatre in September.

As a result of canceling the next two shows, DTC will be losing all of its revenue for this calendar year. We continue to incur monthly expenses that must be paid year-round and not having any shows puts us at significant financial risk.  If you feel compelled to make a donation during this financially trying time for us, please visit our website or mail your donation to us at PO Box 185, Damascus, MD 20872.

Thank you so much for your support!

Call for Directors

DTC is currently seeking submissions for the 2020-2021 season. Area directors are encouraged to submit proposals for musicals or plays that will appeal to a broad base of performers and audiences.  MORE DETAILS >>
