WHAT IS DGT?

DGT is short for Davenport’s Got Talent! We started this school based community fundraiser in 2014 with the intent of building community and offering a creative outlet for our students. DGT was planned to be a show in our café-torium, but once we saw the sign-up papers coming thru, we needed to move the venue to! We were thrilled to see that over 250 students signed up from all grades, including Pre-K!. Our fundraising goals were blown away the first year. Who would have believed that a talent show could not only unite the school, but also help build the foundation for our financial needs to come. In the three years that we have run DGT, the total profits have exceeded $30,000. These funds are spent to subsidize field trips, teacher/classroom needs and a variety of other projects that would not be able to happen without this event.

 

WHO ARE THE DAVENPORT PLAYERS?

The Davenport Players are a group of students who are interested in learning more about musical theater, and the process of putting on a show. The show is directed by Sarah Simner, a self-proclaimed Stagemom and musical theater geek. These students work with a musical director & choreographer to learn songs from a musical. This group meets after school, on Fridays to practice. While there is an audition process, EVERYONE IS INCLUDED! Some of the DP alumni have gone on to perform in off-broadway theaters, earned leads in their middle school musicals and become part of Curtain Call’s Summer Youth Program.

 

WHAT IS AN INDEPENDENT ACT?

This is an act the that is organized by the students outside of school. Each act must have an adult mentor to ensure they are prepared. While we try to meet with all independent acts prior to dress rehearsal to give feedback, these acts are mostly managed on their own time.

 

WHAT ARE WE DOING FOR DGT THIS YEAR?

This year the opening for the show will be a musical medley from THE GREATEST SHOWMAN featuring choreography from FORTNITE the Video Game

 

WHAT IS A GRADE BASED ACT?

This is an act the that is organized in school at recess. If you are time starved, or your child is not able to make after school commitments, this is an AMAZING way to have them included in the show! We try to get all students who are not in the Davenport Players or an Independent Act to join their grade act!

 

CAN I BE IN MORE THAN ONE ACT?

We encourage students to participate in as many acts as they feel they can properly prepare for. If students would like to participate in more than one act, they can.
