The Lightning Thief

The Lightning Thief the Percy Jackson Musical LIVE in Portland, Oregon


Music & Lyrics by ROB ROKICKI
Adapted from the Book "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief" by Rick Riordan


This "winning adaptation" (The Hollywood Reporter) of the best-selling Disney-Hyperion novel by Rick Riordan, THE LIGHTNING THIEF: THE PERCY JACKSON MUSICAL is "electrifying!" (Newsday). The Greek gods are real, and they're ruining Percy Jackson's life. As a son of Poseidon, Percy has newly discovered powers he can't control, monsters on his trail, and is on an epic quest to find Zeus's lightning bolt to prevent a war between the gods. Nominated for 3 Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical, THE LIGHTNING THIEF is "mesmerizing" and proves "lightning can strike twice!"

Percy Jackson, a teenager with ADHD and dyslexia, has been kicked out schools his entire life for reasons uncontrolled by him. After a series of unexplainable and mythical events, Percy finally discovers he is a demigod accused of stealing Zeus’s lightning bolt. His best friend Grover, a satyr, and new friend Annabeth, daughter of Athena, must embark on a quest to find and return Zeus’s stolen lightning bolt before a war erupts between the gods.

The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is based on the New York Times best selling book series by Rick Riordan. This full length show was originally produced in April 2017 with a sold out Off-Broadway run earning the production three Drama Desk nominations (including Best Musical) and an award for Best Off-Broadway Cast Album (2017 Broadway World).
