The Lightning Thief
November 7 | Wright Auditorium, 10 AM
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. In this musical adventure, Percy has ten days to find and return the stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. From TheatreworksUSA. Grades 2-7

Everything you’ve ever learned about the world of pirates comes from Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island.
Having checked into an inn, sea captain Billy Bones is presented with a black spot (the pirate verdict of guilt). He dies. Jim Hawkins, the son of the innkeepers, has only moments to unlock Bones’ sea chest, discover a map inside and escape before the inn is ransacked. When Jim realizes he holds the key to a buried treasure, he launches an expedition, but in his naiveté, he is tricked by Long John Silver and a crew of mutineers.
While X does indeed mark the spot, treachery and plot twists abound before this classic story comes full circle. From ECU Storybook Theatre. Grades 2-7
