As the half-blood son of a Greek god, Percy Jackson 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 war between the gods. 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 The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan 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).

Show Notes:

Show Verse - Matthew 5:5-9 ESV
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. 

Directors' Vision Statement
Lightning Thief is the story of a boy, an outcast, who struggles to understand his differences and desires to know his father. Despite being unaware of the gifts he inherited from his father, he has an innate ability to tap into them, without ever having been told about them or taught how to use them. As Christians, we desire to know our Father. We strive to display the gifts he has blessed us with in a way that honors him, in the same way Percy desires to know and make his Father proud.

Percy Jackson is an 8th grade boy, living in New York, navigating dyslexia, ADHD, a single parent household, and trying to be like the rest of the kids in his class. He is struggling to understand why he can’t just fit in and feel normal. But as we journey with Percy we find out he’s a demigod, the son of Poseidon, and it’s the things that make him different from the “normal” kids that equip him for his quest and make him elite.

The book series and story of Percy Jackson are largely successful because of his relatability. Percy is no different than any other tween or teen in many ways. The teen years are a difficult chapter of life to embrace the things that make you different. However we are all fearfully and wonderfully made and God creates each of us with different gifts and interests that make us unique, and those are the things that make us special.

This musical is filled with lots of fun opportunities for stage time. It is important to know and understand the characters of the show when deciding if it is right for you. Percy is an 8th-grade Demigod, the other students and campers should read as around the same age. We also encounter the adults in his life, as well as many creatures and characters from Greek Mythology who will need to read older than Percy on stage.

The style of the music is another element to take into consideration when choosing if a show is right for you. Lightning Thief is modern, with elements of Pop, Rock, and a touch of Metal. Familiarize yourself with the music and play around with how the songs fit into your voice. Remember to choose a song in the style of the musical. Many bands and artists have musicals based off their music that would offer some great audition material for this show.

We are so excited to bring this production to the stage! We’ve been brushing up on our Greek Mythology, along with all things Percy Jackson. It would not hurt to read or listen to the first Percy Jackson book. The book allows a better foundation and understanding of some details that the script references without much context. Reading the book will only enhance your understanding of the script.

We look forward to seeing each and every one of you who comes out to audition! We have been and will continue to be praying for everyone involved in the process of bringing this show to life. 

Love your Directors,
Christina and Lisa

  • Log into your CYT family account through the website.
  • Navigate to the family member on your dashboard.
  • Click the Tools drop-down box and choose Auditions.
  • Appointment times may be edited here.
You will have 2 minutes to shine! All those auditioning should prepare a selection from a song and a monologue - you can divide the 2 minutes in whatever way you choose. Choose a song that showcases your range, is confidently prepared and most importantly reveals your character, paying close attention to the Director’s Vision Statement (scroll up on this page). 
You will be asked to stop if the audition exceeds 2 minutes, but this does not count against you. 
Please bring your music converted and precut on your device. We will have an aux cord and adapter for both iphone and android available. We will not Bluetooth devices since this takes time away from the audition process.
