On the eve of Harry Potter’s birthday, the anniversary of the world premiere and the start of the third year for the London Production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the Palace Theatre, the Producers announce further tickets to be released for sale on 18 September 2018, for performances from 10 April – 28 July 2019. Tickets are priced from £15 per part and for every performance there are over 300 tickets at £20 or less per part.
Producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender said: “As Harry Potter and the Cursed Child continues to grow, with several new productions worldwide, we are so proud to be celebrating our third year here, in London, at the Palace Theatre, Cursed Child’s first and original home, where it all began. It’s thrilling that we can continue to tell Harry’s story in London, New York, Australia, and beyond, and look forward to welcoming audiences from across the globe.”
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, one play presented in two parts, is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The critically acclaimed production received its world premiere in July 2016 at the Palace Theatre in London and is now also playing at the Lyric Theatre on Broadway, with an Australian production beginning performances at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre on 16 January 2019. A further North American production will open in San Francisco at the Curran in Autumn 2019 and, in spring 2020, a German language version of the play – marking its first non-English production – will open at the Mehr! Theater am Großmarkt in Hamburg, Germany.
Since its premiere, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has won twenty-four major British theatre awards including the Evening Standard Best Play Award as well as a record-breaking nine Olivier Awards – including Best New Play and Best Director – the most awarded production in the history of the Oliviers. The Broadway production has subsequently won twenty-five major Broadway accolades, including five Drama Desk Award awards, six Outer Critics Circle awards and six Tony awards, also including Best Play and Best Director.
