Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Suspends its Season

Not even The Boy Who Lived could magic his way out of this one.

He saw off Voldemort and the death eaters but even Harry Potter has had to bow down before the current coronavirus safety measures.

In a sensible move to ensure public safety the producers of Melbourne’s theatre smash Harry Potter and the Cursed Child have announced they will be temporarily suspending performances until mid April

“In line with the latest advice from the Australian Federal and the Victorian Governments on the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre will be temporarily suspended this week through Sunday April 12, 2020, when the suspension will be reviewed, based on the most up-to-date government advice,” the producers said in a statement.”

If you have tickets for the suspended dates you will be contacted and refunds will be offered. Recognising that two weeks' worth of these dates fall within the busy Victorian school holiday period, the producers have indicated they will be releasing an additional three weeks of performances across the September/October period in an attempt to offset any disappointment.
