Tami Alexander directs and Dee Alexander is the musical director for this rock musical, adapted from the bestselling book of the same title by Rick Riordan, about the half-blood son of a Greek god, Percy Jackson, who discovers powers he can’t control.

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. 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 – which warns him of betrayal by a friend – and come to terms with the father who abandoned him.
