Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

PARTS ONE AND TWO

Canadian Premiere

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new play by Jack Thorne. It is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.

Receiving universal acclaim for its breathtaking magic and stage wizardry, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the most awarded new play in theatre history, including six Tony Awards with one of those for Best Play.

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.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child features movement by Steven Hoggett, set by Christine Jones, costumes by Katrina Lindsay, music & arrangements by Imogen Heap, lighting by Neil Austin, sound by Gareth Fry, illusions & magic by Jamie Harrison, music supervision & arrangements by Martin Lowe.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is produced in Toronto by originating producers Sonia Friedman Productions, Colin Callender and Harry Potter Theatrical Productions, with Canadian producer David Mirvish.

This new play presents the eighth story in the Harry Potter series. Because of the epic nature of the story, it could not fit into the performance time of a traditional single play, and consequently will be told in two parts.

We recommend seeing Part One and Part Two for the full Cursed Child experience. 

You can, subject to ticket availability. However, we recommend that you see Part One first, as it would be difficult to understand Part Two without seeing Part One. It would be like beginning one of the books in the middle!

Part One, 2 hours and 40 minutes (incl. 20 min. intermission)

Part Two, 2 hours and 35 minutes (incl. 20 min. intermission)

The show is suitable for ages 10 and up. All persons entering the theatre, regardless of age, must have a ticket. Children under 4 are not permitted in the theatre. Please note that children under the age of 15 will not be admitted to the theatre without the accompaniment of an adult.
