Potted Potter The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff

  • Back by magical demand!
  • Sydney from 19 September, Perth from 26 September, Brisbane from 2 October
  • Tickets on Sale Friday 29 June at 4pm
  • 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

POTTED POTTER opens in Sydney on 19 September for 9 shows only, then Perth from 26 September for 9 shows only, and finally in Brisbane from 2 October for 10 shows only.

“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.
