The Geneva Theater website shares the plot: âPercy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school again. And this is the least of his worries. Lately, the mythological monsters and gods of Mount Olympus seem to have come straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek Mythology Handbook and into his life. As Percy struggles to navigate the new world he has been cast into, he is faced with charges of theft, ultimatums from righteous enemies, and a prophecy that warns him of a friend’s betrayal. In order to bring peace to Mount Olympus (and save his own skin) Percy will have to catch the real thief and unravel a treacherous plot of truly divine proportions. “
The production features many cast members including John Box, George Della Piazza, Gavin Landis, Caleigh McCready, Jared Miles, Laura Miller, Mikki Steele, Reyna Vincent and Ben Wiegers; and many new faces including Demiah Brown, Ben Meese, Ellyn Newman and Nicole Shaheen.
