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.
