‘Potted Potter’ takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real life game of Quidditch) into 70 hilarious minutes. The show, playing to sold-out houses all over the world, is currently showing at Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino Theatre until January 6.
This humorous show features all of the famous characters, a special appearance from a fire-breathing dragon, endless costumes, brilliant songs, ridiculous props and a generous helping of Hogwarts magic.
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 is sure to make you roar with laughter. This brilliant family entertainment is perfect for ages six to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed).
