WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Far from being purely mythological, it turns out that the Ancient Greek gods are very much real, and they are causing havoc in the life of a 12-year old boy! The son of sea-god Poseidon, Percy experiences a day at school where nothing is as it seems; his best friend is in fact a satyr sent to protect him, and his wheelchair-bound teacher is none other than the legendary centaur mentor Chiron. Armed with newly discovered powers that he must control, he heads to a school camp like none other where he discovers that he is far from being the only offspring of a god.
When his human mother is kidnapped, and the lightning bolt of Zeus is stolen, he sets out on an epic road trip and quest with his new friends to recover it before the gods declare in all-out war. Throw into the mix some deadly monsters, and you have a battle on your hands! From the underworld to Olympus, from Vegas to the forests, this is one action-packed musical adventure that takes you
