    Tyler Smalling


    Mr.Smalling is extremely honored to be directing the Lindenhurst High School’s production of “The Addams Family”. Being able to work with such a talented group of students has been one of the most monumental chapters in his career. He is so grateful for each and every member of the cast and crew for all of their hard work and dedication. All of this couldn’t have been done without every member of the family.  


    During the school day, Mr.Smalling teaches K-5 general music at Albany Avenue Elementary School and Alleghany Elementary school. He has been teaching, learning, and performing music since his adolescence. This passion led him to Westminster Choir College and eventually the Lindenhurst Public School District. Although he’s lost count of the amount of musical performances he’s been in, this will be his first musical performance as stage director.
