D'Jamin Bartlett is an American musical theatre actress.

She trained for the stage at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Bartlett made her first professional stage appearance in 1971 at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C. in a production of Godspell.

Other venues at which Bartlett has performed include the Studio Arena Theater in 1974, The Village Gate in 1976, the National Theatre in 1978, and the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera in 1979.
