Created by two-time Olivier Award-nominated actors Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, Potted Potter features all the leading characters, a special appearance from a fire-breathing dragon, a live Quidditch match, endless costume changes, hilarious songs, ridiculous props, and a generous helping of Hogwarts magic!

“This is our fourth foray into the madcap world of Potted Potter,” said STC Artistic Director Simon Godwin. “We are excited to welcome back this exuberant troupe of wizards and witches. No matter if you’re magical or muggle, this show is the uproarious fun we all need this summer.”
