2017 MUSICAL: The Little Mermaid, Jr.

We are thrilled to announce that The Little Mermaid has been chosen as the 2017 Tyee Musical. The annual Spring Musical is a joint production of the Tyee PTSA and Newport High School Drama/Theater Tech. The Musical will be held at the Newport Performing Arts Center May 11, 12, and 13.   The musical is a “no-cut” activity.  That means if you audition, you’re part of the cast! Auditions sign-ups will be the first week of January with auditions the following week. Below, you will find the info page, audition registration, and the “audition sides” that you can use as you start practicing. We invite you to join the fun and promise that you will be glad you’re part of the cast!

All documents & forms can be found HERE.

If you have any questions, please contact this year's Parent Volunteer Co-Chairs:  Bergitta Scott at bergitta@comcast.net or Stephanie Chen at schen7329@gmail.com

We are asking all families to recognize our annual Tyee Bucks appeal on the list of ways they support Tyee Middle School. If you have given before, thank you. If you have not, this is the year to start. We are well short of our goal and we are asking for a donation of $50 or more per child to ensure we can continue to support the many valuable programs at Tyee Middle School. However, no donation is too small, and every contribution is appreciated.

We want to end this letter by thanking you again. Thank you for taking the time to read it, and whether you are able to give or not, know we deeply appreciate your dedication to your child and our school.



You can also help support valuable TYEE PTSA programs by linking with Amazon Smile, which allows a percentage of your Amazon purchase to be donated to Tyee!  Follow the link below.
