The Production

  • Who will be in the cast?

    Get to know our Toronto cast here.

  • Can I see Part Two without having seen Part One?

    You can, subject to ticket availability. However, we recommend that you see Part One first, as it would be difficult to understand Part Two without seeing Part One. It would be like beginning one of the books in the middle!

  • Do I have to see both parts?

    You are welcome to see only one part if you choose to, but the complete story is told over both parts.

  • What is the running time for the play?

    Part One, 2 hours and 40 minutes (incl. 20 min. intermission)

    Part Two, 2 hours and 35 minutes (incl. 20 min. intermission)

  • Why is it in two parts?

    This new play presents the eighth story in the Harry Potter series. Because of the epic nature of the story, it could not fit into the performance time of a traditional single play, and consequently will be told in two parts.
