London’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child are set to welcome a host of new witches and wizards beginning May 22. Joining the Olivier Award-winning production at the Palace Theatre are Jamie Ballard as Harry Potter, Michelle Gayle as Hermoine Granger, and Thomas Aldridge as Ron Weasley.
The play, penned by Jack Thorne (who crafted the story with J.K. Rowling and director John Tiffany), picks up at the start of the seventh novel’s epilogue, in which Harry Potter’s youngest son Albus sets off for his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. While struggling to follow in the footsteps of his father's legacy, Albus struggles to live up to the Potter name.
Also joining the London production are Rayxia Ojo as Rose Granger-Weasley, Susie Trayling as Ginny Potter, Dominic Short as Albus Potter, James Howard as Draco Malfoy, and Jonathan Case as Scorpius Malfoy
