North Texas Performing Arts announces The Lightning Thief
Announcing Auditions for Four NTPA Locations!
This dynamic musical adaptation of Rick Riordan’s bestselling book opened on Broadway in 2019 and now it’s coming to NTPA stages with productions planned at FOUR NTPA LOCATIONS – Plano, Fairview, Frisco and Dallas! Join us on the epic journey!
About the Show
When teenager Percy Jackson discovers he’s a demigod, he and his friends embark on an epic journey to prevent a war among the gods. Percy has newly-discovered powers he can’t control, a destiny he doesn’t want, and a mythology textbook’s worth of monsters on his trail.
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 celestial war. But 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.
Adapted from the best-selling book of the same name and featuring a thrilling original rock score, The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is an action-packed mythical adventure “worthy of the gods” (Time Out New York).
