First look: 3rd year cast of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child

Can you believe it’s been two years since Harry Potter And The Cursed Child arrived in the West End to a sonic boom of applause? Nope, us neither. But with the new West End cast of the Olivier Award record-breaking play beginning performances a fortnight ago, it’s still casting a spell over theatregoers from far and wide.

And with the original cast now playing to similar acclaim on Broadway, with 10 Tony Award nominations between them, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child is now a golden ticket on both sides of the Atlantic.

Taking on the role of the Boy Who Lived from 23 May, Jamie Ballard plays Harry Potter, with Susie Trayling as Ginny Potter and Joe-Idris Roberts as their son Albus Potter. Thomas Aldridge continues as Ron Weasley, with Nicola Alexis as Hermione Granger and Helen Aluko as their daughter Rose Granger Weasley. Playing Draco Malfoy is James Howard, with Jonathan Case as his son Scorpius Malfoy. Take a look at them in action below (all photos by Manuel Harlan).

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 June 2016 at London’s Palace Theatre.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, the show is a new play by Jack Thorne, 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.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
