Guide to seeing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in Melbourne
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a Melbourne-exclusive production direct from Broadway that’s showing at the Princess Theatre. Here’s everything you need to know about this magical play to make the most of your theatre experience.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth official story in the Harry Potter series, beginning where J.K. Rowling’s famous books finish off: with Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny sending their own children off to begin their adventure at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child premiered at London’s Palace Theatre in 2016 and moved to Broadway in 2018, before opening at the iconic Princess Theatre in Melbourne in February 2019. It has since become the most globally awarded play in history.
With the recent move from a two-part play to a reimagined one-part version, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is still the hottest ticket in town. To make the most of your matinee or evening at the Princess Theatre, here is everything you need to know before witnessing the magic for yourself.
