Presented by CTORA Theatre, The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical follows the story of Percy Jackson, a half-blood son of a Greek god who discovers that he has extraordinary powers he cannot 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 in his quest, Percy must 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.

The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is a captivating story of courage, friendship, and self-discovery that will inspire audiences of all ages,” says director Mark Carter. “We are thrilled to bring this electrifying production to Vancouver, and we invite all theatre enthusiasts to join us for a truly magical experience.”

CTORA Theatre presents The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical at the JCC Norman Rothstein Theatre (950 W. 41st Ave., Vancouver) from May 18-28. Visit ctora.ca for tickets and information.
