The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical

We are excited that for the first time Chico Performances, Chico Area Recreation District (CARD), and Inspire School of Arts & Sciences are partnering to give an opportunity for local youth to work and perform on the Laxson Auditorium stage.

Whether you’re a seasoned performer or you’ve never been on stage before, we encourage you to sign up or audition for a leading role to be a part of this mythical adventure!

Musical Menagerie! Intro to Music Class          

In our introduction to music class, students will experience a range of instruments, including piano, drums, guitar, ukulele and more! Each week students will have an engaging hands-on experience, culminating in a mini jam session on the final week! This is intended for first-time students only with little to no experience. The intention is for families to experience the joy of music and to open a path for future musicians to find their jam!
