Check out a quick synopsis of this page to stage performance from The Rose Theater, based upon the novel The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan.

The Greek gods are real and they’re running 12-year-old Percy Jackson’s life. Percy Jackson has
newly discovered powers he can’t control, monsters on his trail, and is on a quest to find Zeus’
lightning bolt to prevent a war between the Greek gods. Featuring a thrilling original rock score,
this musical invites you to join Percy and his friends Annabeth and Grover as they encounter
mythological creatures, solve the riddle of the Oracle, and learn just how resilient they truly are.
