Potted Potter

Playing to sold out houses all over the world, POTTED POTTER takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real life game of Quidditch) into seventy hilarious minutes. This fantastically funny show features all your favourite characters, a special appearance from a fire-breathing dragon, endless costumes, brilliant songs, ridiculous props and a generous helping of Hogwarts magic!

POTTED POTTER opens in Australia on 2 October and will play limited seasons in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide. Tickets are on sale now.

“Cleverly appeals to both ardent fans and parents.” - The London Times, UK

Created by double Olivier Award Best Entertainment nominees Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, the show is a must-see for Potter addicts and a great introduction to the series for anyone who’s ever wondered what all the fuss is about. Even if you don’t know the difference between a Horcrux and a Hufflepuff, POTTED POTTER will make you roar with laughter. This brilliant family entertainment is perfect for ages six to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed).

POTTED POTTER has played to sold out houses in Toronto, London, Edinburgh, and will open on Broadway in May 2012.

“Gloriously irreverent. A very lovable romp through Rowling’s back catalogue.” - Time Out London, UK

Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner have earned widespread acclaim and a fan base that crosses generations. POTTED POTTER played five sold-out Fringe seasons in Edinburgh, five sold-out London runs and extensive UK and international tours. The show has received rave reviews from all the leading UK papers - The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, Sunday Express, Daily Mail, Evening Standard and the Financial Times, as well as being a Time Out Critic’s Choice.

Clarkson and Turner first performed POTTED POTTER in 2005 at a London bookshop, as a five-minute entertainment for fans awaiting the release of the sixth book in the series. The show grew from there into a full-length stage production, first seen at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2006, and has since toured internationally.

“An absolute gift of a show… Funny and gloriously unpredictable.”
– The Stage, UK

“Blissfully funny, a winner in every way. This show is a crowd-pleaser.” –
