The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff – Back by magical demand!
My family are all a little Potter mad. Have been from the get-go, so much so, that we’ve had to replace our worn out books three times over. We’ve also been known to host Potter themed birthday parties, movie nights and have a collection of Potter-themed dress ups for when the need arises. So you can imagine how excited I am to be reviewing this show when it opens in Perth at the State Theatre Centre next month. Thanks to Lunchbox Theatrical Productions and Potted Productions, we have tickets up for grabs for one of our readers to join me on opening night.
All Seven Harry Potter Books in Seventy Hilarious Minutes!
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!
“Gloriously goofy. Casts the perfect spell over the audience.”
New York Times – Critics’ Picks
“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).
“Blissfully funny, a winner in every way. This show is a crowd-pleaser.”
The Guardian, UK
POTTED POTTER has played 30 weeks off-Broadway across two sold-out seasons, as well as five West End runs, and multiple North American and Australasian tours. The show has proved hugely popular with audiences around the world and now makes a welcome return to Australia, following two previous sell-out tours in 2012 and 2014.
“Gloriously irreverent. A very lovable romp through Rowling’s back catalogue.”
Time Out, London – Critic’s Choice
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 2006, and has since toured internationally for over a decade, securing an Olivier Award nomination as Best Entertainment and Family Show. All four Potted shows (Potted Panto, Potted Sherlock, Potted Pirates and Potted Potter) have earned widespread acclaim and a fan base that crosses generations.
