A Harry Potter musical parody is coming to Australian stages

The Voldemort origin story you didn’t know you needed.

Following hugely successful back-to-back seasons at The Edinburgh Fringe, Voldemort and the Teenage Hogwarts will make its Australian debut next month.

A Harry Potter musical paradoy, the production was created by Los Angeles based comedians Zach Reino (A.P. Bio, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and Chris Grace (Superstore, This Is Us). The pop rock musical tells the tale of a young Tom Riddle, prior to becoming the most notorious and evil figure in the wizarding world, and shows a side of Hogwarts you haven’t seen before.

Presented by Salty Theatre, Theatre Works and Red Hot Productions, Voldemort and the Teenage Hogwarts is a hilarious musical adventure through love, teenage angst and the Unforgivable Curses.

“As a Potterhead, the opportunity to introduce this hilarious, off-centre and brand-new look at the World of Potter that we love so much was one that we couldn’t miss,” said Salty Theatre Co-Founder Ashley Taylor.

“We’re thrilled that it offers all of the diehard fans a glorious taste of the Wizarding World they adore but in a more adult way. It’s a ridiculous Voldemort Origin Story that blends everything fans embrace with humour that wizarding fans and muggles alike can relate to,” she said.

Voldemort and the Teenage Hogwarts comes to Theatre Works from Wednesday April 1 – Saturday April 25. For tickets and more info, head to the Theatre Works website.
