It has been making the rounds all day today on Twitter and through Facebook and other shared links: a theater group recently produced a non-profit, one-time production of Harry Potter: The Musical, and since our staff was handed a DVD of it two days ago we have been singing parts of it nonstop, loudly. You can watch the whole thing through by going here or watching below.

Two opening vids:

I saw it on the day it came up on Youtube and immediately knew it would be an Internet sensation!Avatar ImageBriannaWazHere says: I just watched the whole play and I must say It is probably the funniest thing I've seen In a long time. The actors are great, The girl who plays Draco is awesome- and the guy who plays Harry and the guy who plays ron is hilarious and hermione is spot on. It's just so awesome. It like brings all 7 books and all 5 movies and jumbles them up in a creative and hilarious way. If you are a harry potter fan you should definitley watch this- you won't be dissapointed. Avatar ImageLooie says: Oh my gosh! This is TOTALLY AWESOME! I love it!!!! :DAvatar ImageNiphai says: Wow, this is just TOTALLY AWESOME!Avatar ImageGreenLightening says: Way jealous that you guys have this in DVD form.

It definitely made my day. *goes to watch it again *Avatar Imagesupergirlinfrance says: AWESOME soooo funny seen it 5 times since yesterday ,eekAvatar ImageBookworm Jen says: I've been obsessed with this since I first heard about it Fri night - I watched it over and over again all weekend (particularly the first two parts - they're "totally awesome"), and I've been telling everyone I know about it. :DAvatar Imagewiltabone says: Finally people know about it ... although It's quite good and have really professional actors, the audience laughed at stupid stuff (some humor was unfunny sort of lol)Avatar Imageliv-wa says: I love this so much [: Avatar ImageR-for-H says: The most funniest amazing thing ever! So lucky to see it!Avatar Imagedehonestiss says: i found this the other day when it only had like 100 views, and now i can't stop watching it! its the awesomest thing EVER!Avatar ImageNinnyTreetops says: I've been pimping this on my da, twitter and facebook for three days now, it's fabulous. Today, a co-student of mine came up behind me and stared shouting "Daaangeeeeer! I'm falling in love, falling in love, falling in looooveeeee... with Hermione Granger." which completely made my day, seeing as he isn't really a HP nut, he just likes the books.Avatar Imagemarypao says: I ended staying up most of the night watching this. I laughed so hard I nearly peed my pants several times. The guy who plays Harry is great but the guy who plays Voldemorte steals the show . Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: this was pretty funny if i do say sooooAvatar ImageMarianaSP says: This is one of the main reasons why I LOVE fandom hahhaha I hadnt laughed this much in a LOOOOONG time, it was beyond funny and well done. Cant wait to get a soundtrack!Avatar Imagemystifiedbymuggles says: AMAZING LOVE IT!!!Avatar Imagelizzann09 says: watched this 6 times and it is AMAZING the best thing ive ever seen in my life it just gets better the more times you see itAvatar ImageKatetheKeeper says: Oh my gosh, this was hilarious! I'm so going to Pigfarts next year. All the canon references made it for me. I so want this to be at my school!Avatar Imagemoe miron says: Just finished watching it--haven't laughed so hard in a very long time! This is great! Talented people out there. I need the soundtrack--how can we get it? download it? Help please--I'm not very tech savvy and need some help with getting soundtrack--could Leaky possible put a link up to it? or has this been done and I haven't seen it? Ah well, whatever, I truly enjoyed this, thanks for bringing it here!Avatar ImageMarauder says: LOVE IT! The Cho Chang/Lavender Brown blunder was hilarious! Is this DVD obtainable?Avatar ImageSarabi says: I watched this last night, it's brilliant! I was laughing the entire time. :D Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I will have to bookmark this for viewing later! Based on the comments posted here, this will amount to total awesomeness.Avatar ImageLisee_Lu says: This is freaking totally awesome!Avatar Imagemomentofzen says: I've been obsessing over this for the past couple days. SO FREAKING GOOD. "Someone's coming." "It's not me I swear!"Avatar ImagePCLUPINWILLOW says: This musical has been on our lips all day. what fun.Avatar Imagemegan_702 says: OMG Harry Potter musical! I'm watching it! that's sooo cool!Avatar Image.bother says: I stayed up till 3am watching this last night - FREAKING AMAZING!Avatar Imagearkapain says: I love it so much. It is just full of so many hilarious lines, and it characterizes the people we love from the books amazingly. It is really just brilliant. I did NOT expect that. By the way, some of the youtube links aren't right.Avatar ImageDaphne Blake says: the best fan project to come out since the puppet pals! It's 'TOTALLY AWESOME'! I think they should tour it!!Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: That's just simply brilliant!:)Avatar ImageLP Dantas says: Hey guys, you should go to the "HP the musical" Facebook group. There's a very nice backstage video made by the drummer that gives an idea of what it was like being there. There's some nice trivia as well: the second show they made was sold out and so was the fifth (which wasn't even supposed to happen).Avatar ImagePhil Boswell says: Is there a transcript available anywhere? My hearing isn't the best anyway, and the laughter seems to be obscuring some of the best lines ;-)Avatar Imageravonja says: Oh, I LOVE it :)Avatar ImageImmortal Phoenix says: This is so awesome! This is the only way anyone could do a Harry Potter musical, as a satire. :)Avatar Imagehermione97 says: The musical was just awesome!Avatar Imageseachellie4 says: they did this show at my school! (University of Michigan). it was the best Basement Arts performance turnout they've ever had (from what I've heard).Avatar ImageFereverto says: Voldemort and Quirrel were laugh out loud funny and when Ron kissed Hermione and the line he said as he walked to the door, OH MY, I was ROTFL!Avatar ImageTarsieS says: I adored this and did my part on FB to have it make the rounds! The guy playing Voldie is incredible and deliciously sarcastic. The entire cast was brilliant. Done with the right amount of sarcasm and humor and poking fun and it helps that the entire cast were all HP fans to begin with, and they kept bringing little fandom references into the show - the Dramione was one of the funniest. Although... I will never look at Quirrel-mort the same anymore.Avatar Imagejonamos says: That is awesome. only had time to watch the first 2 scenes but will definitely be watching it later!Avatar ImageC_10s_p says: I just threw up a little in my mouth.... It would be hilarious to see what Jo would say about this lolAvatar ImageC_10s_p says: I just threw up a little in my mouth.... It would be hilarious to see what Jo would say about this lolAvatar Imagebluesox4113 says: I agree, it's really hilarious. I thought Harry, Ron, Malfoy and particularly Voldemort were excellent. Accio guitar! Dragons! Quirrell/Voldemort, OTP! My absolute favorite part was the Imperio tapdancing in the graveyard scene, Act 1 Part 13.Avatar Imagebluesox4113 says: Also, you might consider recoding this entry. If you go to the YouTube playlist page here: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=464C6B6D83E45245 it will let you embed a player that will switch between all the 23 parts.Avatar Imagepottershrink says: very funny, though I didn't like Dumbledore at all.Avatar Imagefantasylover12001 says: They need to make a recording of the music and sell it. I would so buy it. I'm a dork that way.Avatar ImageTheGoldenSeeker says: It's fabulous!!! LOL :DAvatar ImageJPHufflepuff says: I absolutely loved it. I sent a message to them and hear back. They don't think they can make DVDs because they don't have the rights to Potter. But they are looking into making a soundtrack and putting it on iTunes or MySpace. Apparently they're talking to some WRockers to see how they put their stuff out there. All I can say is I can't WAIT for a soundtrack. It was brilliant. Every time Malfoy was rolling around on the floor I was cracking up. Perfect blend of canon, fanon, and spoof. LOVED IT!Avatar ImageT-Vey says: Well, since I never got my Hogwarts letter, I think I'm gonna have transfer schools with Draco to Pigfarts with RUMBLEROAR!!!! This is fantastic, and they clearly put a lot of time and effort into it. The acting is actually very good- Not too over the top, but keeping a great balance of comedy, and relative closeness to different plot points of the stories, to make it an excellent parody! At our school, we have an event where students can direct their own shows, and if I could somehow get permission to access the script in the future, I would love to bring this show to my school! =DAvatar Imagemarypao says: This is great!.
