July 19-28, 2024


It's almost time! Auditions for “The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical” are just days away, on Sunday, May 5th at 7 pm and Monday, May 6th at 7 pm.


Zanesville Community Theatre, 940 Findley Ave, Zanesville.


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.


This musical is a modern, fun retelling of the classic Rick Riordan book. No need to prepare anything ahead of time for auditions. This show is for older teens and young adults. If you have any questions, please reach out to Cary Stotts either on Facebook, or  at 740-683-5312!
