Following three sold-out seasons in the previous years, Potted Potter makes a triumphant return to Manila! It opens in Manila at the Maybank Performing Arts Theater, BGC Arts Center on March 20 for nine shows only.
After a successful stint in 2012, the show returned to Manila in 2013 and 2014 much to the delight of the Potted Potter Filipino fanbase. This March, it is back again by magical demand.
Playing to full houses all over the world, 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. This fantastically funny show features all your favorite 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 will make you roar with laughter. This brilliant family entertainment is perfect for ages six to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed).
Potted Potter has played 30 weeks off-Broadway across two sold-out seasons, as well as five West End runs, and multiple North American and Australasian tours. The show has proved hugely popular with audiences around the world and now makes a welcome return to Australia, following two previous sell-out tours in 2012 and 2014.
Clarkson and Turner first created Potted Potter in 2005 for an appearance at a London bookshop, as a five-minute entertainment for fans awaiting the release of the sixth book in the series. The show grew from there into a full-length stage production, first seen at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2006, and has since toured internationally for over a decade, securing an Olivier Award nomination as Best Entertainment and Family Show. All four Potted shows (Potted Panto, Potted Sherlock, Potted Pirates, and Potted Potter) have earned widespread acclaim and a fan base that crosses generations.
The shows in Manila are on March 20 and 21 at 8 p.m., March 22 at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., March 23 at 2:30 p.m., 5 p.m., and 7:30 p.m., and March 24 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
