Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to Resume Performances 25 February 2021

Multi-award-winning theatrical event Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will resume performances on 25th February, after a hiatus of 49 weeks.  The landmark production suspended a record-breaking run at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre after public health measures were imposed by the government due to COVID 19.

Producers Sonia Friedman, Colin Callender, and Michael Cassel added: “We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all Victorians and the State Government for their commitment during these extraordinary times, and for allowing us to safely return. We are thrilled to congratulate Melbourne as the first city in the world to re-open Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and extend a special thank you to our loyal audiences who have stuck with us.  On behalf of everyone in the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child company, we can’t wait to welcome you back.”

CEO Visit Victoria Brendan McClements said today, “From its opening in February 2019, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child established itself as one of Melbourne’s iconic entertainment destinations.This production is a major draw card for visitors and the opening will be a significant step forward to reactivate the East End Theatre District. I wish the production well as it welcomes audiences back to the theatre in February of next year.”

Marriner Group’s CEO, Jason Marriner said, “ The health and safety of our audiences are paramount and we can assure everyone entering the Princess Theatre doors that the utmost care and detail has gone into making the theatre-going experience safe. We very much look forward to welcoming you back.”
