2012 Olivier Award Nominee – Best Entertainment & Family Show

All seven Harry Potter books in seventy hilarious minutes!

“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.” - Toronto Star

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!

“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).

Potted Potter has played to sold-out houses in Toronto, London and Edinburgh, and has just started its debut season in New York City.

“Gloriously irreverent. A very lovable romp through Rowling’s back catalogue.” - Time Out, London – Critic’s Choice

All three Potted shows (Potted Panto, Potted Potter and Potted Pirates) have earned widespread acclaim and a fan base that crosses generations. Potted Potter played five sold-out Fringe seasons in Edinburgh, five sold-out London runs and extensive UK and international tours. The show has received rave reviews from all the leading UK papers - The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, The Times, Sunday Express, Daily Mail, London Evening Standard and the The Financial Times, as well as being a Time Out 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, including sell-out seasons at the Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Comedy Festival and New Zealand Comedy Festival in 2009.

“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
