POTTED POTTER The Unauthorised Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan & Jeff

Potted Potter is flying back to Australia by magical demand, celebrating its fifth national tour as well as having played to over a million muggles worldwide! The international smash hit Harry Potter parody has played to sold-out houses all over the world, including an ongoing Las Vegas residency. The Best Entertainment and Family Show Olivier Award Nominee takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter into seventy hilarious minutes. The show even includes a real-life game of Quidditch, in a new version new to Australia! Even if you don’t know the difference between a horcrux and a Hufflepuff, this brilliant comedy will make you roar with laughter. Created by two-time Olivier Award-nominated actors Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, Potted Potter is perfect for ages six to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed). “Inventive, daft fun for all the family that doesn't feel the slightest bit cynical. A winner in every way.” – The Guardian “The duo casts the perfect spell over the audience.” – The New York Times – Critics’ Pick “Gloriously irreverent. A very lovable romp through Rowling’s back catalogue.” – Time Out London – Critics’ Choice “I guarantee you’ll go positively potty over Potted Potter. Muggle or master wizard, you’re going to love this show.” – Toronto Star “A fabulously funny parody.” – Daily Telegraph
