The Lightning Thief
Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school… again. But, even worse, the gods of Mount Olympus have come to life from the pages of his Greek mythology textbook. And boy, are they angry! Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen and now Percy is the prime suspect. He has only ten days to find the stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. To succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: He must come to terms with the father who abandoned him, solve the riddle of the Oracle, and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves. Join us for this wonderfully imaginative musical adaptation of the book by Rick Riordan.
