WMU Theatre presents The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical

Posted by Emily Duguay for Theatre

Adapted from the best-selling book The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan and featuring a thrilling original rock score, this action-packed mythical adventure opens the 2022-2023 theatre season!

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. But 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, and come to terms with the father who abandoned him.
