Ticket Update: Although there is still some availability, due to unprecedented public demand the Producers have now released a further allocation of tickets for sale through to 27 May 2017. The period 7 June 2016 to 8 January 2017 is now sold out with the exception of late release and daily lottery tickets.
Tickets for this amazing stage event are already breaking box office records at London’s Palace Theatre. In the pre-sale period (those who had registered for priority booking) over 175,000 tickets had already been sold. Producers are releasing further booking periods to cope with the unprecedented demand for this production.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne will receive its world premiere in London’s West End at the Palace Theatre in the summer of 2016.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. Written by Jack Thorne and directed by Olivier and Tony award winner John Tiffany, the play brings together some of the most exciting talent working in the theatre today.
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
Featuring a cast of over 30, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is one play presented in two parts. Both parts are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening), or on two consecutive evenings.
