Spring Musical Performance

Based on the Popular Series by Rick Riordan

Regis Jesuit Theatre is proud to present The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical as its spring production. This rocking musical follows Percy Jackson, the half-blood son of Poseidon, as he and his friends embark on an epic quest to the underworld to retrieve Zeus' stolen lightning bolt. This fun musical is great for the whole family. Our matinee performance on Saturday will be sensory-friendly. Don't miss out on the epic quest!

List of 7 frequently asked questions.

  • Where can I find The Z Theatre on the school's campus?

    Home to the Drama Club Troupe #6996 and RJ Theatre, The Z is located on the second floor of the Steele Center in the middle of campus. The easiest access is from the main parking lot for the Girls Division building on the northeast side of campus. You may also park in the main lot for the Boys Division on the south side of campus. 

    SEE THE CAMPUS MAP for both access options.
  • How can I contact the box office?

    You can email questions about box office tickets to RJ Theatre Director Richard Merkling at
  • How many shows does Regis Jesuit perform each year?

    Generally two - a fall play and a spring musical. In years where there is interest, there may be an additional student-directed production in the late spring.
  • Is theatre only for experienced actors and/or crew members?

    NO! Everyone is welcome. No experience is necessary. There are all types of opportunities both on and off the stage including set design, costumes, makeup, props, sound, lighting, building, painting, publicity, house management, etc.
  • Does everyone get a part in the show?

    Our goal is to have as many students involved as possible. That said, there is no guarantee that all who audition will get a part. However, there are plenty of opportunities for everyone to participate either on stage or behind the scenes. Being on the technical crew involves all aspects of putting a show together from set design to the finished stage project. Through this format, students on the crew will gain invaluable experience in all areas of stage production. Their support is critical to the success of each production.
  • What other theatre opportunities are there at Regis Jesuit?

    All Drama Club members are eligible to participate in the Colorado Thespian Conference (ThesCon) in December. There are also occasional collaborations with other groups/events within the school, as well as with outside organizations such as long-time RJ partner Cleo Parker Robinson Dance.
