Bring your wands, Potter fans! This gloriously goofy parody takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing (or “potting”) all seven Harry Potter books, and a real-life game of Quidditch involving the audience, into 70 hilarious minutes with songs, ridiculous props, and a generous helping of Hogwarts magic. And even if you don’t know the difference between a horcrux and a Hufflepuff, Potted Potter is perfect for ages 8 to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed). Shows at 3pm & 8pm.
