It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.


This is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series, and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The work is presented in two parts, which are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.

For The Record:

This production is on hiatus, due to the COVID 19 restrictions. According to reports a revised version of the show will return in 2022.
