Christian Youth Theater North Idaho's opening performance of "The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical" is set for 7 tonight at the Kroc Center in Coeur d'Alene with shows going through Nov. 20.

Adapted from the best-selling book by Rick Riordan, Time Out New York describes the play as an action-packed mythical adventure "worthy of the gods."

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' 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.

Tickets for "The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical" start at $15 for group rates.
