TYA Version of ‘Percy Jackson’ Musical ‘The Lightning Thief’ Cast Announced


The upcoming TYA (theater for young adults) version of The Lightning Thief, the Broadway musical based on Rick Riordan’s hit Percy Jackson series, got its official cast list today!

This one-hour adaptation of the original Broadway production aims to make the show more accessible and affordable for younger audiences, aiming for kids grades two through six. However, it is important to note that it is not a youth production, it’s just a simpler version of the show. The cast is still comprised of adult actors, and you can check out the full cast below.

Percy Jackson — Luke Raikes

Annabeth Chase — Queade Norah

Grover Underwood — Tyler Tanner

Chiron/Mr Brunner — Thomas James Knapp

Sally Jackson — Joelle Zazz

Luke Castellan — Jason Rodriguez

Stage Manager — Tara Tolar-Payne

The show will premiere in New York with two shows on October 1 at the Five Angels Theater before heading out on tour. You can find out more information about the show and see if it will be near you over on the Theater Works USA website.

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
