ABOUT THIS PRODUCTION: We are currently living through a collective moment of internal rage, unrest, and revolution that cannot be ignored. This brand new, reimagined production will take the form of a live, pop punk concert from which the theatrical event will erupt! We will channel the inherent theatricality of a live concert to create Percy, Annabeth, and Grover’s journey to the underworld.
THE LIGHTNING THIEF is a coming-of-age story. This is the story of a generation that is tired of fighting the monsters created by the generations before. A generation wielding a righteous rebellion that is kicking and screaming for a better existence on this planet. A generation who feel discarded by their parents, who want to be wanted, who want to be fully seen. It is the story of a group of friends who find each other, see each other, protect each other, rage for each other, and become family. With their powers combined, they must face the impossible and reestablish peace in their world.
