Potted Potter

By LYDIA MWAMBI

 

Potted Potter truly is “The Unauthorized Harry Potter Experience” every Potterhead needs. The magical creation of Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner holds something special for wizards, witches, squibs, and muggles alike! It is fun for the whole family and, perhaps the most magical part of it all, the humor is not lost on those who are unfamiliar with the books or movies. If you’re looking for a night of deep belly laughs and a much-needed trip back to Hogwarts, hop on the next Express to the Historic Pantages Theater.

This show is an enchanting combination of script and improv, performed by two of the most charismatic men from “across the pond”. Joseph Maudsley and James Percy (yes, that is his actual name) play to their audience perfectly in this fast paced, hilarious, and utterly witty parody of all seven Harry Potter books. The show plays as if the two actors are recapping Harry’s story one book at a time for the audience, with unique interpretations of the characters and a hilarious reenactments of important events.

You are sure to be put under the spell of Maudsley and Percy as they play a multitude of our beloved characters, charm the crowd, convince you that He Who Must Not Be Named is your favorite character, and astound with the perfect musical number. It is safe to say that JK Rowling would approve of this comedic and inspired adaptation of her timeless works. Potted Potter will shock you in all the best ways, make you laugh, and have you on your feet. Get your brooms polished because you’re in for one magical ride. Quiddich anyone?
