One foot in Harry Potter and another in Dear Evan Hanson” – Chicago Tribune

“With a disarmingly funny script by Joe Tracz and a hard-rocking score by Rob Rokicki, The Lightning Thief sweeps you up as a contemporary high schooler is thrust into the danger-filled world of Greek mythology. A blast!” – Boston Globe

“Worthy of the Gods!” – Time Out New York

When New York City teenager Percy Jackson discovers that he is the half-blood son of the Greek god, Poseidon, his life takes a dramatic turn as he is plunged into a world much bigger than he could possibly have imagined.

With newly discovered powers he is unable to control, an unwanted destiny and a whole textbook’s worth of mythical monsters on his trail, Percy must learn what it means to be a hero.

The future of the world hangs in the balance as Percy and his friends embark on an epic adventure that will have you on the edge of your seat.

Adapted from Rick Riordan’s best-selling novel by Joe Tracz, writer of Be More Chill, and with an electrifying rock score by Rob Rokicki, The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is the perfect adventure for gods and mortals alike.
