'Harry Potter And The Cursed Child' Update: Stage Play Gets A Whole New Cast; Here's Why

A new set of cast has recently been announced for "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" at the Palace Theatre in the West End. Following the final performance from the current batch of actors on May 21, the new line-up is also set to officially join the production thereafter. Additionally, given that the rehearsal for the new West End cast has already begun, it was found that Jamie Glover from "Waterloo Road" Emma Lowndes from "Downtown Abby" and Theo Ancient were chosen to play the three main characters.

Furthermore, according to Digital Spy, Rakie Ayola from "Holby City" is set to take on the role of the new Hermione Granger, alongside with Thomas Aldridge as Ron Weasley and Helen Aluko as their daughter Rose Granger-Weasley. Meanwhile, the new antagonist of the story will be played by James Howard as Draco Malfoy together with Samuel Blenkin as his son Scorpius Malfoy. The production at the Palace Theatre in London allegedly focuses on Albus Severus, Harry's youngest son, as he struggles to deal with his dad's legacy while living in his shadow.

The Success Of 'Harry Potter And The Cursed Child'

On the other hand, it was found that the stage play's original cast and crew have previously celebrated the news that the plays had been nominated for a record-breaking eleven Laurence Olivier Awards. As per OK, tickets are priced between £15-£75 each which have already been sold out since August 2016. Moreover, for those who can't afford the pricey tickets on reseller websites, there is still a chance to get tickets every Friday, at 1 pm since 40 tickets are reportedly being released for each performance of the following week. However, the production emphasizes that these people are being chosen randomly to get the chance to buy a maximum of two tickets for both Part One and Part Two in one transaction for £40 at £20 for each part.
