Accio new Harry Potter And The Cursed Child cast! As the Olivier Award record-setting show prepares to enter its fourth year in the West End, rehearsals have begun for its next cast – and stage and screen star Michelle Gayle is joining it.

Michelle, who’s perhaps best known for her roles as Hattie Tavernier in BBC’s Eastenders, Belle in Beauty And The Beast’s West End run, and as a smash-hit recording artist, will take on the role of Hermione Granger from 22 May. Her daughter, Rose Granger-Weasley, will be played by Rayxia Ojo.

Continuing in the cast are Jamie Ballard as the Boy Who Lived himself – Harry Potter – as well as Susie Trayling as Ginny, Thomas Aldridge as Ron Weasley, James Howard as Draco Malfoy and Jonathan Case as his son Scorpius Malfoy.

New tickets for the magical production will go on sale on 2 April, with the show opening booking up until 19 January 2020.

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child began life in London with its nine-time Olivier Award-winning production at London’s Palace Theatre, before flying out on its broomstick to Broadway’s Lyric Theatre and Melbourne’s Princess Theatre. Further productions are expected within the next year in San Francisco and Hamburg.

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.
