Music Director
Amy Jackson
Amy Jackson couldn't be more delighted to music direct The Lightning Thief. Some of her previous music directing credits include: Into the Woods, 13! the Musical, Charlie Brown, Peter Pan, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and more productions of Beauty and the Beast than she can count. She's looking forward to music directing a children's production of The Lightning Thief at the Actor's Training Center in fall.
