ThinkTank Theatre looks beyond traditional casting “types” when it comes to the characters’ race, gender, and physically ability. The characters in The Lightning Thief are gods and heroes – and gods and heroes look like any of us.
Percy Jackson (M) Tenor – Son of the sea god, Poseidon. Percy is a good kid with ADHD and dyslexia who can’t seem to stop getting into trouble, and just wants to find a place where he can belong. That opportunity comes from the most unexpected place when Percy is given a quest from the gods to find and return Zeus’ lightning bolt, save his mom from the Underworld, and prevent a war between the gods.
Annabeth Chase (F) Soprano – The daughter of Athena. Smart, feisty, and eager to prove herself to her mom, Annabeth is skeptical of Percy at first, but becomes one of his best friends through the trials they face on Percy’s quest
Grover (M) Tenor – Percy’s best friend. Unbeknownst to Percy before he goes to Camp HalfBlood, Grover is also a satyr—a child of Pan and protector of demigods.
Luke Castellan (M) Baritone/Tenor – Son of Hermes and one of Percy’s first friends at camp. He helps Percy come to terms with finding out that he’s a demigod and provides advice when the gods give Percy his quest.
Sally Jackson (F) Mezzo – Percy’s hard-working mom. Sally’s raised Percy on her own and would do anything to protect her son.
Mr. Brunner aka Chiron (M) Baritone/Tenor – Percy’s kind, but stern, Latin teacher. He expects the best out of his students, especially Percy. Also happens to be a centaur.
Clarisse La Rue (F) Mezzo – The daughter of Ares. Competitive and tough-as-nails, she’s known for her prickly demeanor and battle skills in capture the flag.
