2012 Olivier Award® Nominee – Best Entertainment & Family Show

All Seven Harry Potter Books in Seventy Hilarious Minutes!

 

“Fabulously funny! Will tickle the funny bone of every age group.” – The London Daily Telegraph

“I laughed until my jaw ached.” – Herald Sun (4 stars)

POTTED POTTER toured Australia in 2012 and played to sold-out houses across the country, and now by popular demand this hugely entertaining show makes a welcome return.  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 performs in Melbourne from 28 October and will also play limited seasons in Perth, Sydney and Brisbane.  Tickets will be on sale on Monday 31 March.

“Cleverly appeals to both ardent fans and parents.” – The 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 30 weeks off-Broadway across two sold-out seasons, had five West End runs, enjoyed extensive UK and international tours, and has just embarked on a 2014 world tour including Mexico City, Ireland, Canada and Dubai before reaching Australia.

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

 

Clarkson and Turner first created POTTED POTTER in 2005 for an appearance 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 in 2006, and has since played a further four sold-out seasons in Edinburgh, as well as sell-out seasons at the Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Comedy Festival and New Zealand Comedy Festival in 2009.

 

All three Potted shows (Potted Panto, POTTED POTTER and Potted Pirates) have earned widespread acclaim and a fan base that crosses generations.  POTTED POTTER has received rave reviews from all the leading UK papers – The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, The Times, Sunday Express, Daily Mail, London Evening Standard and The Financial Times, as well as being a Time Out Critic’s Choice.

 

“A hilarious romp through the seven books” – The West Australian

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

“Comic and affectionate – a zany hoot.” – New York Post
