    Directed by Scott Shattuck.

    When their patriarch disappears one hot summer night, the colorful Weston family hurriedly assembles at the rural Oklahoma home of his hilariously caustic, pill-popping wife. Their outrageous conflicts, secrets and lies collide to launch the corrosive comedy that won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and became the basis for the hit movie starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. Recommended for mature audiences.

    Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school... again. And that’s the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he’s angered a few of them. Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen and Percy is the prime suspect. Adapted from the book by Rick Riordan.

    Target grades: 2-6. Presented by Theatreworks USA.

    Tickets are $6 for individuals or $5 per person for groups of 20 or more. To purchase tickets, call 888.240.ARTS or 936.468.6407.
