Potted Potter back in Manila Jan. 30-Feb. 3
The smash hit “Potted Potter” returns to Manila on January 30-February 3 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, for nine shows only.
“Potted Potter”, which had sold-out houses during the first season in Manila last August, condenses all seven Harry Potter books (and a real life game of Quidditch) into 70 hilarious minutes. The show features all your favorite characters, a special appearance from a fire-breathing dragon, endless costumes, brilliant songs, ridiculous props and a generous helping of Hogwarts magic.
“So long as you don’t live in a cave and have at least heard about Harry Potter and his Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, you’ll find yourself under
the show’s funny spell,” said Edmund Silvestre, The Philippine Star.
“Totally unauthorized, outrageously funny, and altogether memorable, 'Potted Potter' has the audience laughing long after the curtains fall,” said Blooey Singson, ABS-CBN News.

Almost 22,000 fans are currently subscribed to the “Potted Potter” Manila Facebook page, which still continues to grow. Producer James Cundall, Chief Executive of Lunchbox Theatrical Productions said, “With an utterly great reception of the audiences, we did not have second thoughts on bringing back the show in Manila.”
The comic duo behind the show, Jesse Briton and Gary Trainor, will cap off their worldwide tour here in Manila. The 2012-2013 tour includes Singapore, Hong Kong, Auckland and Wellington in New Zealand, Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, currently in Brisbane then show goes to Adelaide, Australia, then to Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa.
Double Olivier Award Best Entertainment nominees Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner first created “Potted Potter” in 2005 for an appearance at a London bookshop, as a five-minute entertainment for fans awaiting the release of the sixth book in the series. The show grew from there into a full-length stage production, first seen at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2006, and has since toured internationally, including sell-out seasons at the Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Comedy Festival and New Zealand Comedy Festival in 2009.
