Hang on to your Quidditch Sticks! Condensed, Tongue-in-Cheek Version of Harry Potter Series Flies in to the Bushnell

The hit off-Broadway show Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff is coming to the Belding Theater at The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts for two weekends May 17-19 and May 24-26.

The show received a 2012 Olivier Award nomination for Best Entertainment & Family Show. Written and performed by former BBC Television hosts Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, the play takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing, or “potting”, all seven Harry Potter books into 70 madcap minutes, aided only by multiple costume changes, brilliant songs, ridiculous props and a generous helping of Hogwarts magic. The show also invites audiences to engage with a real life game of Quidditch, but according to Clarkson and Turner’s unique set of rules.

Whether you camped outside a bookstore for three days awaiting the release of the Deathly Hallows or you don’t know the difference between a horcrux and a Hufflepuff, the comedy, magic and mayhem of Potted Potter makes for an entertaining and hilarious visit to the theatre.

Perfromances: Friday at 7 pm; Saturday and Sunday 2 and 7 pm. Tickets: www.bushnell.org; 860-987-5900. starting at $49.75.
