From award-winning plays to hilarious parodies, there’s a Harry Potter-themed show for every fan. Here are five stageshows that are sure to delight and enchant audiences.

1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Experience the eighth Harry Potter story on stage with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. This acclaimed play has been a massive hit in London’s West End and on Broadway, winning numerous awards and earning critical acclaim. The play takes place 19 years after the events of the final book and movie, following Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger as they face new challenges and mysteries. With stunning special effects and a captivating storyline, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a must-see for any fan of the series.

2. Potted Potter

If you’re looking for a hilarious parody of the Harry Potter series, Potted Potter is the show for you. Created by Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, this show condenses all seven books (and a game of Quidditch) into a fast-paced, side-splitting 70-minute performance. Even if you’re not a die-hard Potter fan, you’ll find yourself laughing along with clever jokes and physical comedy. Perfect for kids and adults alike, Potted Potter is a great way to experience the magic of Harry Potter in a new and entertaining way.

3. Puffs

While Harry Potter was busy saving the wizarding world, there were other students at Hogwarts who had their own stories to tell. That’s the premise of Puffs, a play that follows a group of misfit students through seven increasingly eventful years at Hogwarts. With witty humour and a heartfelt message about friendship and acceptance, Puffs offers a fresh perspective on the Harry Potter universe. This inventive play is a must-see for anyone who loves the Harry Potter series and wants to experience it from a different point of view.

4. Reclaiming Harry

Reclaiming Harry is a brand-new show that takes a fabulously queer approach to the Harry Potter story. The show follows Harry as he embarks on a thrilling adventure to find a new writer, with the help of Ally, a former Potter fan with a magical touch. With elements of physical theatre and musical theatre, Reclaiming Harry promises to be a unique and exciting addition to the Harry Potter theatrical canon.

5. Voldemort and the Teenage Hogwarts Musical Parody

For those who want a more raunchy and irreverent take on the Harry Potter story, Voldemort and the Teenage Hogwarts Musical Parody is the show to see. Presented by Salty Theatre, this musical parody follows Tom Riddle (aka Voldemort) and his classmates as they navigate the ups and downs of teenage life at Hogwarts. With catchy songs and hilarious jokes, this show is not for the faint of heart. But for those who want to see a different side of the Harry Potter universe, Voldemort and the Teenage Hogwarts Musical Parody is a must-see.

The magic of Harry Potter continues to captivate audiences around the world, and these five stageshows offer a variety of ways to experience the wizarding world in a whole new way. With the new HBO Max series announced today, these are sure to be popping up at a theatre near you soon.
