Do you think the magic is already over after reading the books and watching all the 8 movies? Think twice because here comes the characters of our well-loved children's book back on a stage show to cast spells and poke fun on the J.K. Rowling best-seller.
Written and conceived by Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, Potted Potter is a huge challenge of condensing all the seven books in to 1 70-minute show. Like what I mentioned above, characters from the book will return plus fantastic appearance of magical creatures paired with joyful songs and ludicrous props. The show is first created back in 2005 as a 5 minute show for the official book launch of Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince. It then grew into a full blown show and finally premiered in Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2006. From that moment it starts touring all over the world including the successful run at the Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Comedy Festival and New Zealand Comedy Festival in 2009.
Here are some testimonials about the show:
“Fabulously Funny! Will tickle the funny bone of every age group.”
-The London Daily Telegraph
“The single funniest thing I’ve seen in ages. You’re gonna love this show.”
“Cleverly appeals to both ardent fans and parents.”
-The Times, UK
“Gloriously irreverent. A very lovable romp through Rowling’s back catalogue.”
-Time Out, London – Critic’s Choice
“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.”
-The Guardian, UK
Now the show is coming to the Philippines next month. We will be having our chance to experience this fun and lively performance. Here's the season details for the show for everybody's reference.
