The Greek gods are real, and they are ruining Percy Jackson's life. Percy Jackson is a teenage demigod, which isn't as cool as it sounds—he has powers he can’t control, a destiny he doesn’t want, and monsters on his trail. When Zeus’s lightning bolt is stolen and Percy becomes the prime suspect, he and his friends set out on a quest to find the bolt, clear Percy’s name, and prevent an all-out war between the gods. Adapted from the best-selling book by Rick Riordan, The Lightning Thief is an award-winning rock musical with a thrilling score and a story for the ages.
We hope you will join us for a magical and mysterious journey through Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka JR. follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats, but the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka's rules in the factory — or suffer the consequences. The delicious adventures of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory features the enchanting songs from the 1971 film, in addition to a host of fun new songs. Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka JR. is a scrumdidilyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone's sweet tooth. This show is appropriate for all ages and is 75 minutes long without an intermission.

Jessica and Jordan are dedicated to teaching and sharing their talents with their students. I am forever grateful for the opportunities they have given my son.
This is a great group of young adults We especially loved "Olive" but everyone was great We had seen this play before where adults played the kids but this was kids playing kids and it is a refreshing to see such talent in the youth; all were very polite when we spoke to them in the lobby after the play> We look forward to seeing their next production.
Hilarious show with non-stop laughter! Highly recommend!
Really cute show! Lots of great talent!
high energy hilarity. We left laughing...
Fun show with a great cast. I’m glad I went!
Jessica and Jordan have helped me so much as an actor and a singer and just a person in general I highly recommend them.
Excellent program, run by true professionals! My son continues to gain knowledge about the industry, and has grown leaps and bounds since studying with TYP! He is now gaining leadership skills as well! So grateful!
TYP has created a safe and welcoming risk-free environment where the kids feel safe expressing themselves. Jordan and Jessica are amazing teachers and we are so happy to be a part of this company.
