As the half-blood son of a Greek god, Percy Jackson has newly discovered powers he can’t control, a destiny he doesn’t want, and a mythology textbook’s worth of monsters on his trail. When Zeus’s master lightning bolt is stolen and Percy becomes the prime suspect, he has to find and return the bolt to prove his innocence and prevent a war between the gods. To succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the thief. He must travel to the Underworld and back; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and come to terms with the father who abandoned him. Adapted from the best-selling book The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan and featuring a thrilling original rock score, The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is an action-packed mythical adventure “worthy of the gods” (Time Out New York). –Concord Theatricals
Why The Lightning Thief?
The Lightning Thief is a great choice for KIDSTAGE for two reasons. First, the size of the show is what we look for our rising artists to explore the challenges of creating multiple characters and expanding their craft. It is an ensemble show that will allow students to continue to learn collaboration and community in their artistry. Second, as a rock show that touches on themes of accepting accountability, acceptance of others, and seeing beyond what’s at face value, The Lightning Thief proves to deliver wholesome entertainment that is both fun and relevant.
