Piedmont students to perform in Berkeley Playhouse’s ‘The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical’

A Berkeley Playhouse KidStage production this weekend (April 21-23) will feature four PMS students in “The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical.” The show will feature Ethan Hammond as Percy Jackson, Sloane Kau in various roles, Naomi Jerez as Grover, and Lucy Shoop.

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’ 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 appropriate for all ages.

Directors: Laura Marlin and Megan McGrath
Assistant Directors: Carmen Orgain and Noah Rojas-Domke
Music Director: Camden Daly
Choreographer: Ann Warque
