First look at Harry Potter and the Cursed Child stage show in Melbourne

Melbourne is in the grips of Potter-mania ahead of the red carpet premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child this Saturday!

JK Rowling’s continuation of the Hogwarts saga is the most awarded stage play in history and Melbourne is only the third city worldwide to welcome it.

Production images of the multi-award-winning theatrical event have been released – the first official look at the play in its new Aussie home at The Princess Theatre.

First photos of the Australian production have been released.
The story picks up where ‘The Deathly Hallows’ ended.

Tickets for performances as far away as Feb 2020 will be on sale on Tuesday. You’ll need to get in quick to secure yours as the first 200,000 seats were snapped up in just four days last year!

Sunrise sat down with Australian cast members Sean Rees-Wemyss (Albus Potter), William Mckenna (Scorpius Malfoy) as well as Gareth Reeves, Gyton Grantley & Paula Arundell (who play Harry, Ron & Hermione) to chat about what fans can expect – watch in full below!
