It has been a few years since the last Harry Potter film was released. When we came across an advertisement for Potted Potter a few months back, we thought it would be a great date night. Aside from our guess of the name deriving from Harry Potter, we didn’t know much about the show. We came to find out this is a popular parody famous for showcasing all seven Harry Potter books in 70 mins.
Lead by Dan Clarkson, who played a Potter fanatic and Jeff Turner, who pretended to be one. Together, they left the audience grasping for breathe.
Revealing the overly simplified or wrong set design – a coconut palm tree representing the mysterious and frightening Forbidden Forest, a large wardrobe from Narnia and a choo-choo train that supposed to portray the iconic Hogwarts Express – the audience roared in laughter. 🙂
The show continued with characters reenacting the quintessential scenes with silly wigs and props, such as a mop for a broomstick and a dragon stuffed animal. Pop culture references were added in the mix. I am Hermone and I am off to the UN. 🙂 Audience were invited to a game of Quidditch. The finale with “I will survive” parody was the best! 🙂
