Open Door Theater Registration form for “The Lightning Thief”

Open Door Theater is thrilled to announce our 2022 show – we will be performing:

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

Directed by Stephanie Henry and Brian Kelly, Musical Direction by Jon Eldridge.

 Look for auditions the first week in January and performances are the last weekend in June. In order to be safe, we have changed to some of our procedures for this year only. Casting will be open only to those ages 12 and up and vaccines are required for all participants in our program (exemptions apply). Cast size will be limited to 50 and we will be rehearsing masked and in small groups. Performances will be held June 24,25, and 26 (with rain dates June 27 and 28) outdoors at the beautiful NARA Park amphitheater in Acton. Sign up for our mailing list at the link on this page and receive notifications of audition registration and performances. We welcome donations of any size at this link.

THE LIGHTNING THIEF is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
