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.
  • To prevent a war between the gods, Percy embarks on a quest to find the missing 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.

FWBHS’ Thespian Troupe 4967 recently earned a superior rating at the district competition for its one-act production. The troupe will represent its district at the 2024 Florida State Thespian Festival in March after judges selected the FWBHS production for top honors in all categories.

  • Nearly 8,000 students from across Florida will participate in the weeklong state festival.

Single tickets for “The Lightning Thief” are $18 and can be purchased online by clicking here.
