TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: The Award-Winning International Hit Stage Production "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" to Be Featured at Comic-Con International in San Diego

Jul 15, 2019
The award-winning international hit stage production "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" will be featured at this year’s Comic-Con International: San Diego from July 18 to 21, 2019 with a booth and panel.

 

On Thursday, July 18 at 6pm, panel audiences will get an exclusive, never before seen insight into the world of the mind-blowing stage effects of "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" when the show’s Magic and Illusions Designer Jamie Harrison and his associate Chris Fisher lead “Making Magic for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – An Interactive Masterclass.” With magical demonstrations, video footage and never-before-told stories from the making of the show, audiences will learn how the magicians and actors use clever techniques and cunning psychology to make the impossible seem real – they’ll even learn to perform magic themselves!

 

The production’s booth, on display all four days in the Exhibit Hall, will feature Tony Award winner Christine Jones’ set model for the Broadway production, along with an actual costume worn by Jamie Parker who created the role of Harry Potter in the original West End and Broadway productions. The walls will be lined with photos depicting the show’s creation, design sketches and images from the rehearsal process and production itself taken from the forthcoming book "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: The Journey" which will be released in the U.S. on November 5, 2019. There will also be a photo booth where fans can show their Hogwarts House pride by posing with Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin banners.

 

"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. 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 Thorne, directed by John Tiffany.

 

Receiving universal acclaim for its breathtaking magic and stage wizardry, "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" is the most awarded play in theatre history, winning 25 major U.S. awards, with six Tony Awards including Best Play.
