This week, a brand new cast for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will magically appear on stage. Jamie Ballard, Susie Trayling, Nicola Alexis, Joe Idris-Roberts, and Jonathan Case will be treading (and floating above) the boards of the bewitching show from Wednesday 23 May.

Ahead of Wednesday’s performance – and the live reveal – you can get a sneak peek at the new-look characters. See the new Harry Potter, Ginny Potter, Hermione Granger, Albus Potter, and Scorpius Malfoy joined by Thomas Aldridge as Ron Weasley, Helen Aluko as Rose Granger-Weasley and James Howard as Draco Malfoy, below:

Jamie will play the eponymous Harry Potter. His theatre credits include Mother Christmas and In The Vale of Heath for Hampstead Theatre, and Uncle Vanya for Theatr Clwyd/Sheffield Crucible.

Susie joins the cast as Ginny Potter. Her previous credits include Iphigenia Quartet, Idomeneus and Vanya for the Gate Theatre, The Hook for the Liverpool Everyman, and Royal and Derngate Northampton Theatre.

Taking the role of Albus Potter is Joe. Prior to Harry Potter And The Cursed Child, his credits include Pinocchio for the National Theatre, Eyes Closed Ears Covered for The Bunker, and Forty Years On for Chichester Festival Theatre.

Nicola will play Hermione Granger. She was part of the original Harry Potter And The Cursed Child company.

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, directed by John.  It’s the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.

Since its premiere, it’s won 24 major British theatre awards including a record-breaking 9 Olivier Awards – including Best New Play and Best Director.

The Broadway production officially opened to equal critical acclaim at the Lyric Theatre last month and has subsequently received numerous Broadway accolades including 10 Tony Award nominations.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk. If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices.

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. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

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.

For more than 40 years, TKTS was our on-the-day theatre ticket box office in Leicester Square. Currently closed due to the current situation, we are now selling our great last minute seats and prices online. Click here to learn more.

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.
