Our goal is to inspire children and parents to go find the book, or books that the show is based on and read it for themselves. We love books and our life is about bringing them to life on the stage while remaining to true to the author, or the tradition out of which the story came. Each show is created to tour with 3-4 actors and a stage manager, a touring set and costumes; depending on venue we can also bring lighting and sound system. Steamer No.10 is funded in part by the New York State Council on the Arts The Key is Reading – it Unlocks the Treasures of the World - Children’s Literature Brought to Life.

TheatreworksUSA, - THE LIGHTNING THIEF Music,
Performing Arts- Theater
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. Adapted from the book The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan.

Can also include classic reggae and calypso with the steel drum. Realistic sounding backing tracks of bass and drums are used making me sound just like a full band.
