ELEMENTARY & INTERMEDIATE

(Musical Theatre Performance Program)

DANCE-1.jpeg
Lighting Thief - FULL.jpg

As the half-blood son of a Greek god, Percy Jackson has newly-discovered powers he can't control, a destiny he doesn't want, and a mythology textbook's worth of monsters on his trail. When Zeus's master lightning bolt is stolen and Percy becomes the prime suspect, he has to find and return the bolt to prove his innocence and prevent a war between the gods. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the thief. He must travel to the Underworld and back; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and come to terms with the father who abandoned him. 

 

This drama-desk award nominated adaption of the best-selling book, THE LIGHTNING THIEF by Rick Riordan opened on Broadway in 2019.

 

Featuring a thrilling original rock score, THE LIGHTNING THIEF: The Percy Jackson Musical is an action-packed mythical adventure "worthy of the gods" (Time Out New York).

Book by Joe Tracz
Music and Lyrics by Rob Rokicki
Adapted from the book The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Originally commissioned, Created, and Produced Off Broadway by TheaterWorksUSA.


The Lightning Thief: Theatre for Young Audiences Edition is presented by arrangement with ORiGiN™ Theatrical on behalf of Concord Theatricals www.origintheatrical.com.au

FEES & DISCOUNTS

FEES

Each of our Musical Theatre performance programs run over two terms, full fees and discounts are viewable HERE.

 

A Costume Hire fee of $70 (inc. GST) will be added to your first term Invoice so the team can get your costumes ordered and ready for dress rehearsals.


We always endeavour to keep costume costs at a minimum, so some simple items (like black basics, undergarments, and shoes) will be supplied by students while the more complex costumes will be supplied by ROCKIT Productions.

DISCOUNT PACKAGES

We know that the cost of living is greatly affecting our community so we have introduced our 2024 DISCOUNT PACKAGE to help ease the load. Check it out HERE.

Basically, the more classes you add, the more you save!

PAYMENT PLANS

We do not expect fees to be paid in advance each term as these packages can really add up, so we offer a number of payment plan options with our direct debit partner PayAdvantage.
