Charleston Gaillard Center Presents the TheaterWorksUSA production of

The Lightning Thief: TYA Edition

No upcoming perfomances found for this event.

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.  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.  But 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. Adapted from the book The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan.

Runtime: 60 minutes, no intermission
