“The gods are real … Like the Greek gods!”  We are delighted to be producing the All Schools Musical production of The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical. Based on the beloved novel by Rick Riordan, the Lightning Thief tells the story of Percy Jackson, son of Greek god Poseidon, as he sets out on a hero’s journey of self-discovery, grappling with monsters, and mysterious mayhem along the way.

The Lightning Thief is a story about identity, family, and community. Percy’s experience is one that resonates across cultures and our casting will reflect that truth. We are committed to casting a group of performers ranging in age from 10-18 that will reflect the people of our local community. We will be casting all roles to include different shapes, abilities, ethnicities, and identities. As the playwright, Joe Tracz, says, “The characters in The Lightning Thief are gods and heroes – and gods and heroes can look like any of us.”

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. We are excited for this new adventure to add new people, new talent, and new voices to our community as well as welcome returning performers to the Laxson 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!

Ages: 10-18
Fee: $250 plus $25 supply fee
