This year's musical Keep the Magic is an original script and will be accompanied by our own Live Pit Orchestra made up of fourteen amazing Tyee musicians!

If you have any questions or would like to be involved with this year's production, please contact this year's Tyee Musical Co-Chairs: Jennifer Klenetsky and Erica Halford at tyeemsmusical@gmail.com.



Keep the Magic is the musical story of a circus “family” whose very core is threatened when the youngest member, Tina, declares she is leaving the show. Her helplessness is shown in her loss of belief in herself. The pain of Tina leaving is unbearable for her circus family. Tina must make a choice between her familiar past and the excitement of exploring the 1920's Jazz Age on her own. Through her internal struggle she must find the magic that Stubbs, the clown, says is inside each of us. Keep the Magic and believe in oneself.
