Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Enchants SDCC

By Miclpea

Fans of Harry Potter are in for a special treat at SDCC this year. The international hit stage production, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, will be featured at SDCC with a booth and panel!

On Thursday, July 18 at 6pm in room 6BCF, panel audiences will get an exclusive, never before seen insight into the world of the mind-blowing stage effects of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child when the show’s Magic and Illusions Designer, Jamie Harrison, and his associate Chris Fisher lead Making Magic for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – An Interactive Masterclass. There will be magical demonstrations, video footage, and never-before-told stories from the making of the show. Audiences will have an intimate view of how the magicians and actors use clever techniques and cunning psychology to make the impossible seem real. Perhaps, members of the audience may even learn to perform magic themselves!

The production’s booth, #3629, will be open all fours days in the Exhibit Hall. The booth will feature Tony Award winner Christine Jones’ set model for the Broadway production, along with an actual costume worn by Jamie Parker who created the role of Harry Potter in the original West End and Broadway productions. The walls of the booth will be lined with exclusive content featured in the forthcoming book Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: The Journey which will be released by Scholastic in the United States on November 5, 2019. There will also be a photo booth where fans can show their Hogwarts House pride by posing with Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin banners.

This is an amazing opportunity for fans of Harry Potter to see exclusive material based on a beloved classic and phenomenal stage production. Attendees can vicariously enjoy the wonder that is the award-winning stage production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, while perhaps securing exclusives as well. This is a must-see panel and booth.


I love going to conventions around the US. I'm an ardent fan of all things science fiction and especially The Expanse. I'm a staff writer for Friends of CC and I have co-written a science-fiction script called Punctuated Equilibrium.
