After 49 weeks of closure, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has reopened its doors at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre. The show had been suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions, but now with new safety measures in place it’s time to turn the theatre lights back on and let the magic begin again.
To celebrate the first production returning, the Melbourne company arranged a special surprise for the audience… Each audience member was gifted a wand as they arrived at their seats. As the curtain call completed, the cast invited the audience members, to join them in raising their wands up in the air to mark the show’s return.
