    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. Now Percy has ten days to find and return Zeus’s stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

    Target Grades: 2 to 8

    Tickets are $7.50 for individuals or $6 per person for groups of 20 or more. To purchase tickets, call 888.240.ARTS or 936.468.6407.

    • Tue., Feb. 23–Sat., Feb. 27, 7:30 p.m., W.M. Turner Auditorium

    Presented by the School of Theatre (The Mainstage Series)

    Directed by Zach Hanks.

    Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for drama, Clybourne Park was written in response to the classic A Raisin In the Sun (which the School of Theatre produced to enthusiastic audience response in 2010).  In Raisin, an African American family in 1959 is moving to a white Chicago neighborhood called Clybourne Park. The first act of Norris’s play is set at the same time, in the house that the family is buying. The second act is set in the same location 50 years later. The tables are turned (a white family now seeks to buy the house from a black family), but many painful issues are still unresolved. Passionate, balanced, funny and as timely as this morning’s headlines, this is a play for every American to see and to ponder.

    Single tickets: $15 for adult, $10 for senior, $7.50 for student. Purchase tickets online or by phone: 888.240.ARTS (936.468.6407).
