The Production

  • Who will be in the cast?

    Casting for the production is to be confirmed at a later date.

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

    You can choose to see only Part Two, subject to ticket availability. It may be more difficult to understand Part Two without seeing Part One, as it is a continuation of the same story. You may also purchase both parts separately.

  • 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.

  • Why can’t I see Part One on a Saturday or Sunday matinee and Part Two on another night?

    We want to make sure that audiences have the best possible chance of seeing the play in one day. If we sold the Saturday and Sunday performances separately, then there would be no way of guaranteeing that audiences who see a matinee of Part One could also see Part Two on the same day.
