The Fort Walton Beach High School Theatre Department will present “The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical” Feb. 15-18.
- Based on the popular Percy Jackson book series by Rick Riordan, the musical follows 12-year-old Percy Jackson as he discovers he is a demigod — half human, half Greek god — and accused of stealing Zeus’ lightning bolt.

The FWBHS production will take place at the school’s auditorium at 400 Hollywood Blvd. SE. Showtimes are 7 p.m. Feb. 15-17 and 2 p.m. Feb. 18.
Directed by the school’s theatre department, the musical incorporates catchy songs and energetic choreography to bring Percy’s adventure to life on stage.
