Harry Potter fans get ready for the the Olivier Award nominated Potted Potter which opens at the Town Hall this evening (Thursday ).

This Olivier Award nominated Potted Potter - the unauthorised Harry experience – a parody by Dan and Jeff - comes to Galway after playing at The Helix Dublin.

The show condenses all seven Harry Potter books - and a real-life game of Quidditch - into seventy hilarious minutes. A fantastically funny show, it is performed by Jan Martin and Paul Brown, features "everyone's favourite characters, a special appearance from a fire-breathing dragon, endless costumes, brilliant songs, ridiculous props and a generous helping of Hogwarts magic".

Created by double Olivier Award best entertainment nominees Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, the show is regarded as is a must-see for Potter addicts, and also for those who don’t know the difference between a Horcrux and a Hufflepuff. Critics say Potted Potter will make the audience roar with laughter.

Potted Potter has been seen by more than one million muggles around the world since its 2006 premiere, and has played 30 weeks off-Broadway across two sold-out seasons, as well as five West End runs, and multiple North American and Australasian tours.

The New York Times – Critics’ Pick says: "The duo casts the perfect spell over the audience," while Time Out London – Critics’ Choice says: "Gloriously irreverent. A very loveable romp through Rowling’s back catalogue."

Clarkson and Turner first created Potted Potter in 2005 for an appearance at a London bookshop - 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 for more than a decade, securing an Olivier Award nomination as Best Entertainment and Family Show. All four Potted shows (Potted Panto, Potted Sherlock, Potted Pirates and Potted Potter ) have earned widespread acclaim and a fan base that crosses generations.
