Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to open in Australia in 2019

From Sonia Friedman Productions --

Sonia Friedman, Colin Callender and Harry Potter Theatrical Productions, producers of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, have today confirmed the record-breaking production will open in early 2019 in Melbourne, Australia, exclusively and only at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre.

Performance dates and ticketing details will be announced soon. Visit HarryPotterThePlay.com to sign up to the mailing list and receive ticketing information and news.

Producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender said, “When we embarked on this journey, it was an objective to ensure we could get the production to Australia as soon as logistically possible. You can’t ever assume a new play is going to have a further life, but we knew that if Harry Potter and the Cursed Child did have a life beyond London and Broadway, that the next stop would be here.

“The Harry Potter stories have millions of fans across the globe, and so we’re very happy and proud that we’re able to bring our beautiful production to Australia, where we know a whole new audience will experience the eighth story. Melbourne is a fantastic city with such wonderful culture and heritage, and so we’re thrilled that the gorgeous Princess Theatre will be Cursed Child’s next home.”

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new play by Jack Thorne, directed by John Tiffany. The production is one play presented in two parts. Both parts are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The critically acclaimed production received its world premiere in July 2016 at the Palace Theatre in London where it continues to play to sold out houses.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has won 22 major theatre awards in the UK and is the most awarded production in the history of Britain’s prestigious Olivier Awards, winning a record-breaking nine awards earlier this year including Best New Play and Best Director.

The play will open on Broadway in April 2018 at the Lyric Theatre in New York.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is directed by John Tiffany with movement by Steven Hoggett, set by Christine Jones, costumes by Katrina Lindsay, music & arrangements by Imogen Heap, lighting by Neil Austin, sound by Gareth Fry, illusions & magic by Jamie Harrison and music supervision & arrangements by Martin Lowe. International Casting Consultant is Jim Carnahan and Australian casting by Janine Snape. Executive Producer of the Australian production is Michael Cassel.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, Colin Callender and Harry Potter Theatrical Productions.

2nd Annual "Dobby’s Sock Drive" Collecting New Socks for the Midnight Mission Benefitting Los Angeles’ Homeless Community

From Los Angeles Dumbledore's Army --

The Los Angeles Dumbledore's Army, the second largest Harry Potter fan group in the world since 2008, is once again using its popularity to give back to the community. This is the 2nd Annual "Dobby's Sock Drive” which began on Friday, October 13th and will run through Friday November 10th, collecting socks at local comic book stores for The Midnight Mission, an institution providing support to Los Angeles’ homeless population.

The Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army is requesting new, unused socks be donated in men's, women's and children's sizes, which will be distributed by The Midnight Mission to the Los Angeles’ homeless before the cold winter months. During Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army’s first “Dobby’s Sock Drive,” over 1,000 pairs of new socks were collected, which, according to The Midnight Mission is a much needed donation item often forgotten about.

This year The Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army has sock collection boxes at over a dozen comic book stores throughout Los Angeles County including the famous Meltdown Comics in Hollywood and The Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach. Several of the participating comic book stores are providing special discounts and free gifts with any Dobby’s Sock Drive new sock donation at their stores (list below).

For anyone not familiar with the Harry Potter narrative, Dobby was an enslaved house elf that was only set free by having been accidentally presented with socks by his owner. Dobby, one of the most beloved characters in the series, subsequently became obsessed with socks, hence the name of the charity drive.

About Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army

Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army, lovingly known as the LADA, is a Harry Potter fan group with over 2,200 members. For almost a decade, the 21+ group have been holding for Harry Potter themed meet ups including the award-winning annual Harry Potter Roller Skating Night at Moonlight Rollerway in Glendale and the annual Dressed to the 9 ¾ Harry Potter vintage dress up day at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. As the group’s popularity soars, it’s turned towards giving back to the community in the spirit of what brings us all together: Harry Potter.

Joining the Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army is easy by visiting the Meetup website and by signing up for the group. Meet ups are held monthly and occasionally all ages are permitted. Anyone interested in joining the award winning book club, or even taking place in Harry Potter themed cooking competitions, trivial game nights or costumed events will be glad they joined.

Harry Potter: Original Motion Picture Soundtracks I-V Availabele As Double Vinyl Picture Discs

From Rhino Entertainment --

The Harry Potter film series is one of the most successful cinematic franchises of all time and it continues to inspire a passionate and growing following around the world. One key that helped bring author J.K. Rowling's books to life on the big screen was the evocative music created for the films by great composers like John Williams, Patrick Doyle and Nicholas Hooper.

This fall, Rhino will transport you to J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World with a limited edition boxed set that features the soundtracks to the series' first five films pressed on vinyl picture discs (10 LPs). HARRY POTTER: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACKS I-V will be available on November 17, and is available for pre-order here: https://rh-ino.co/hpsndtrks

Each soundtrack is contained in a gatefold sleeve that is die-cut on both sides. The images used for the picture discs are stills taken from the related films. The one exception is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which also features an etching on the last side of the LP. The set also includes a download card so the music can be downloaded.

HARRY POTTER: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACKS I-V includes soundtracks for: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001), Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007).

The soundtracks to the first three films were all composed by John Williams, who is responsible for some of the most popular film scores in history. One song that debuted on the Philosopher's Stone soundtrack -- "Hedwig's Theme" -- became the main musical theme for the series and appears in all of the Harry Potter films.

Patrick Doyle composed the music for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005). The film's soundtrack also features three songs by a fictional rock band featured in the story whose members include Jarvis Cocker and Steve Mackey of Pulp, and Jonny Greenwood and Phil Selway of Radiohead.
