The Tony and Olivier-award winning play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, has revealed the cast of its next production in Melbourne, Australia. Appropriately so, the big news was announced during the Wizarding World’s annual right of passage Back to Hogwarts, which is depicted at the start of the of the two-part performance right where the Deathly Hallows epilogue left off.

The company of 42 actors will be led by Gareth Reeves as Harry Potter, Paula Arundell as Hermione Granger, Gyton Grantley as Ron Weasley, Lucy Goleby as Ginny Potter, Sean Rees-Wemyss as Albus Potter, Tom Wren as Draco Malfoy and William McKenna as Scorpius Malfoy.  

Director of the most awarded play in theater history, John Tiffany, said this about the production’s expansion to Australia and what audiences down under can expect from the new cast,

“Our Cursed Child family has just got a whole lot bigger. Everyone involved in our show is so excited and proud to be working with this incredibly gifted new Australian company; during the casting process we saw an extraordinary breadth and range of talent from all across Australia and New Zealand and I think audiences are going to be blown away. I’ve worked in both Melbourne and Sydney a few times now and have always been inspired by the actors I’ve worked with – I can’t wait to see what they bring to the Cursed Child.”
