Cast Auditions

When: January 9 3:25-5pm, January 10, 3:25-5pm and January 12 from 3:25-5:00pm
Where: Tyee stage/choir room
Preparation: Total audition time is 5 minutes.

  • Be prepared to sing a short (one minute or less) selection from a song. A song from another musical is a great option. You will be singing your song without accompaniment (no music). Choose a song that you are comfortable singing and that shows us your vocal range. If you have no idea what to sing, you may sing “Happy Birthday.” The Directors will evaluate your vocal range as well as your projection.
  • Be prepared to read one of the sides. Please find the sides here. Sides are short scenes from the script used for dialogue auditions. You will read one character and a member of the production team will read the other character(s). While you are not expected to memorize the lines in the side, you should read with expression – this is your acting audition! There is not a side for every part in the play. Choose the side that you think best shows your acting ability and then mark down which characters you are most interested in on the audition form. 

The auditions are not meant to be scary! The directors are very friendly and want to get to know you and figure out parts that will work for everyone.

*** The Cast List will be posted after school on Friday, January 13, 2023***


Backstage Crew

Students have the opportunity to be part of the backstage crew. This job is great for those who want to be involved with theater but prefer to not be on stage. Jobs include: taking attendance, taking blocking notes, reading for an actor who is absent, collecting bios for the program, etc. During Tech Rehearsals, crew members that do not have an on-stage role will also help with backstage jobs like run crew, make-up, props, etc.



The fee for participating in the play is $85 per student. Checks need to be made out to “Tyee PTSA” (please indicate “musical” on the description line) or through the online link on the PTSA website. Payment is due when you sign up to audition. The fee is non-refundable.

The participation fee covers your script, vocal/instrumental tracks, rehearsals with professional coaches, production t-shirt, online access to show photos, the after party —and participation in a first-hand theater experience at Newport High School Performing Arts Center!



Most costumes are created from dress-up and thrift store clothing, and cost between $20 - $30. Students will need to provide the base components of their costume: a top, bottoms, and shoes that fit with the costume guidelines that will be provided by the Costume Director. You will work with the Costume Team to either make, borrow, or alter a costume. Depending on what the material needs are, a small costume fee may be charged (estimate $15).
