The production, which officially opened June 3 following previews that began May 19, had originally been scheduled to conclude Aug. 12.
A 2012 Olivier nominee for Best Entertainment & Family Show, Potted Potter is presented by Starvox Entertainment and Potted Productions.
Written and performed by two-time Olivier Award-nominated actors Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, the play, according to press notes, 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."
The creative team included director Richard Hurst, set designer Simon Scullion, lighting designer Tim Mascall, associate director Hanna Berrigan and production stage manager Gilda Frost with original music composed by Phil Innes.
Alternate cast members David Ahmad and Richard Atwill appear at certain performances, including Saturday matinees at 2 PM.
