The Lightning Thief

MBT Wade Bennett King Education Series Event

Adapted for the stage by Robert Rokicki and Joe Tracz

From the book by Rick Riordan

Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school…again. And that’s the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life. Even worse, he’s angered a few of them—Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect!

Now, Percy has ten days to find and return Zeus’s stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. To succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.
