Potted Potter to Tour
Potted Potter - The unauthorized Harry Potter Experience, is set to tour Australia from October 2.
The 2012 Olivier Award Nominee for Best Entertainment & Family Show has announced seasons in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide
All Seven Harry Potter Books in 70 Minutes.
Potted Potter takes on the challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real life game of Quidditch) into 70 minutes. The show features all the favourite characters, a special appearance from a fire-breathing dragon, endless costumes, songs, ridiculous props and a generous helping of Hogwarts magic!.
Potted Potter opens in Australia on 2 October and will play limited seasons in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide. Tickets are on sale now.
Created by double Olivier Award Best Entertainment nominees Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, “the show is a must-see for Potter addicts and a great introduction to the series for anyone who’s ever wondered what all the fuss is about,” the media release states. “Even if you don’t know the difference between a Horcrux and a Hufflepuff, Potted Potter will make you roar with laughter. This brilliant family entertainment is perfect for ages six to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed).”
Potted Potter has played to sold out houses in Toronto, London, Edinburgh, and will open on Broadway in May 2012.
Edinburgh, five sold-out London runs and extensive UK and international tours. Clarkson and Turner first performed Potted Potter in 2005 at a London bookshop, as a five-minute entertainment for fans awaiting the release of the sixth book in the series. The show grew from there into a full-length stage production, first seen at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2006, and has since toured internationally.
