We are all very excited about the coming of the spinoff trilogy about the Wizarding World with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but now, Potterheads will be extremely excited as J.K. Rowling herself confirmed the Eighth Official Story of the Harry Potter Saga: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It will be the first one presented as Live Theatre and it will start 19 Years after the Battle of Hogwarts. Do you remember the end of the last one? When Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley were dropping off James Sirius and Albus Severus at Platform 9 3/4.
What will be the Plot Synopsis for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child?
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
The play will be presented at the Palace Theatre in London, in summer 2016 and is to be staged in two parts due to the ‘epic nature of the story’, according to J.K. Rowling own words.

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child will be a Two Part Theatre Play, Should I watch both?
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 you are only able to commit to one part in the first booking period, there will be a Thursday evening performance of Part One and a Friday evening performance of Part Two. On these days, tickets to each part can be bought together or separately.
For performances from 21 September 2016, Wednesday matinee and Wednesday evening performances of Part One and Part Two can also be bought together or separately. Details of when Saturday and Sunday performances of Part One and Part Two can be bought separately will be announced at a later date.
When is Harry Potter and The Cursed Child Theatre Play Premiere Date?
Reduced price previews will begin on Tuesday 7 June 2016 and the Opening performances of Parts One and Two of the play will be on Saturday 30 July 2016.
In addition four special preview performances are planned for the end of May 2016 – details of where and how to obtain these tickets will be announced at a later date.
The preview process allows the creative team time to rehearse changes, or to explore specific scenes further before the official Opening performances on Saturday 30 July 2016.
There are 26 previews for both Part One and Part Two of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child which take place over 8 weeks.
