The Lightning ThiefThe Lightning Thief
Friday, October 9 / 7 p.m.  (One hour in length, recommended for grades 1-6)
(Please note start time is different from other events.)
LA-Z-BOY CENTER, MEYER THEATER
GENERAL ADMISSION:  $5

Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school – again. And that’s the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he’s angered a few of them. Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen –and Percy is the prime suspect.

Now Percy has ten days to find and return Zeus’s stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend, and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves. Adapted from the book “The Lightning Thief” by Rick Riordan.
