Why is it in two parts?
This new play presents the eighth story in the Harry Potter series. When originally conceived and workshopped the goal was to match the epic nature of the stories that preceded it in the series, for the London audience to be fully immersed in that storytelling the show was written to be in two Parts.
Do I have to see both parts?
Part One will only be half the story, so the experience would be incomplete without seeing how the story ends. Likewise, if you only see Part Two you may find it hard to follow the story. We do recommend that you try to see both parts consecutively, but if seeing both Parts over consecutive performances does not work for you, you can book separate Parts across different days of the week, this is dependent on availability of each Part you select. This option is currently unavailable for Saturday and Sunday performances which must be booked as consecutive performances.
Can I see Part Two without having seen Part One?
We recommend that you see Part One first, as it would be difficult to understand Part Two without seeing Part One. It would be like beginning one of the books in the middle!
Can I buy for each part separately?
If seeing both Parts over consecutive performances does not work for you, you can book separate Parts across different days of the week, this is dependent on availability of each Part you select. This option is currently unavailable for Saturday and Sunday performances which must be booked as consecutive performances.
Why can’t I see Part One on a Saturday or Sunday matinee and Part Two on another night?
We want to make sure that audiences have the best possible chance of seeing the play in one day. If we sold the Saturday and Sunday performances separately then there would be no way of guaranteeing that audiences who see a matinee of Part One could also see Part Two on the same day.
What is the running time for the play?
Part One, 2 hours and 40 minutes (incl 20 min interval) Part Two, 2 hours and 35 minutes (incl 20 min interval).
Wednesday, Friday and Saturday Part One commences at 2pm and curtain down at 4.40pm, Part Two commences at 7pm and curtain down at 9.35pm.
Sunday Part One commences at 1pm and curtain down at 3.40pm, Part Two commences at 6pm and curtain down at 8.35pm
Will the cast always be the same?
Due to annual leave requirements in the UK, some cast members may differ between parts if you have not booked consecutive performances of Part One and Part Two within the same week. Please also note that the appearance of any particular cast member cannot be guaranteed in the unforeseen event of illness or other circumstances beyond our control.
What happens if a performance is cancelled?
If, for reasons beyond our control, a performance is cancelled, ticket holders will be offered alternative performances (subject always to availability) up to the seat value on the ticket or a refund of the price paid for the seat element. We will not be liable for any additional expenses incurred by customers in the event of a cancelled performance. If your performance is cancelled due to COVID-19 please see this page here for further information.
What is the age suitability?
The show is suitable for ages 10 and up. All persons entering the theatre, regardless of age, must have a ticket. Babes-in-arms are not admitted to the auditorium. Please note that patrons under the age of 15 should be accompanied by an adult.
Are there animals in the production?
During the performance you will see some birds in cages but please note these birds are not real – just very realistic pieces from our brilliant props department! There are no real birds featured in the production.
