The “Harry Potter” Stage Cast Revealed

The cast has been announced for “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” the new two-part play set to open in London’s West End that acts as a sequel to the “Harry Potter” books and films.

Jamie Parker, Paul Thorney, and Noma Dumezweni have been cast as Harry, Ron, and Hermione respectively in the project which has been described as “the eighth story, nineteen years later” with the trio effectively playing grown up versions of the beloved characters.

In this story, Potter is now an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic and father of three school-age children. As he 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.

“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” has previews in May ahead of its official opening on July 30th next year. Tickets are now on sale through May 2017.
