Potted Potter plans West End return

A popular take on the famous Harry Potter novels is returning for another run in London’s West End.

Potter Potter is written and performed by CBBC’s Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner and is ideal for families enjoying Montcalm London hotels breaks next Easter.

The Garrick Theatre will host the show, which is directed by Richard Hurst, designed by Simon Scullion, lighting by Tim Mascall and produced by Seabright Productions Limited, from March 23rd to April 14th 2013.

All seven stories Harry Potter stories from JK Rowling are condensed into a 70 minute show that involves a real-life game of Quidditch and a variety of props, songs, costume changes and magic.

The audience are actively encouraged to get involved in the show and it has proved a hit with reviewers since its launch in 2006 as well as being nominated for two comedy Oliver Awards.

It has also been part of Edinburgh’s Fringe festival for a number of years and made its US premiere at the Little Shubert Theatre in New York City this year in front of hundreds of keen Harry Potter fans.

Tickets are on sale now for the London run and cost £20 each, with family tickets available for £70 and premium seats £30.

A reviewer from the Guardian following the show’s last London run said: “I guarantee you’ll go positively potty over Potted Potter. Muggle or master wizard, you’re going to love this show.”

The Garrick Theatre is on Charing Cross Road in the heart of London’s theatre district.
