The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical

Russell H. Miller Theatre

Adapted from the book The Lightning Thief, by Rick Riordan

What do you do when you find out the Greek gods are real, Poseidon's your dad, and you're a half-blood with weird new powers and mythical monsters on your trail? If you're teenager Percy Jackson, you somehow end up on a quest with your best friend Grover and fellow half-blood Annabeth to find Zeus's stolen lightning bolt and prevent war between the gods. This "irreverent rock-and-roll" musical adaption of Rick Riordan's beloved novel is sure to delight the whole family!
