Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Potter Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff continues to cast a spell on Las Vegas! The hit, family-friendly show celebrated its 1000th performance at The Magic Attic showroom inside Horseshoe Las Vegas on Thursday, March 16, 2023.
In addition, the show has extended its run at Horseshoe Las Vegas through December 2023. Tickets are currently on sale at Ticketmaster.com or PottedPotter.com. The current Las Vegas stars, James Edwards and Nicholas Charles were joined by the show’s creators and original stars, Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, who flew in from the UK for a whirlwind 48-hour Las Vegas celebration.
After several successful North American tours, Starvox Entertainment and Potted Productions have created a magical evening with London’s West End hit in Las Vegas for its first-ever run on the famous Strip. Created by two-time Olivier Award-nominated BBC Television actors Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, the show debuted at Bally’s Las Vegas on June 4, 2019. Both audiences and critics have embraced the show, which currently stars Nicholas Charles and James Edwards.
“Potted Potter is really a show for those that don’t know Harry (or what Quidditch is for that matter) as well as fans of the whole series,” said Las Vegas Magazine. “It’s a comedy feast of all seven [Harry Potter] books acted out by two hilarious performers in 70 minutes…an experience not to be missed!“
The Las Vegas Review-Journal adds: “You can’t help but laugh through this farcical send-up of the seven Harry Potter books.”
Selling out to crowds around the world, Potted Potter will have you flying off your seat (or broomstick) with laughter. The perfect show for muggles, witches and wizards of all ages, this production of the boy-who-lived’s story combines all seven books into 70 hilarious minutes. The cleverly curated show includes all of your favorite characters, perfect Potter props, and even a live Quidditch match!
Starvox Entertainment and Potted Productions first introduced the fabulously funny show to North American audiences in Toronto in 2012, where it received rave reviews. Over the past several years the show has completed multiple tours, delighting crowds with its clever wit. Potted Potter has left audiences feeling positively nostalgic and has sold out theatres across the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Dubai, and Canada. Whether you’re team Gryffindor or don’t know the difference between a Death Eater and Dumbledore this show is a seriously good time.
