We’re all eagerly awaiting the premiere of the Harry Potter & The Cursed Child play here in Australia, from January 16. 

While tapping our wands impatiently, we’ve been trying to find out who will be playing our faves in the Aussie adaptation of the play, and now we finally know!

The producers have no announced the full cast of the show, with 42 performers set to wow us with their magical performances. 

John Tiffany, the show’s director and co-writer of the original story alongside J. K. Rowling and Jack Thorne, revealed:

“Our Cursed Child family has just got a whole lot bigger. Everyone involved in our show is so excited and proud to be working with this incredibly gifted new Australian company; during the casting process we saw an extraordinary breadth and range of talent from all across Australia and New Zealand and I think audiences are going to be blown away. I’ve worked in both Melbourne and Sydney a few times now and have always been inspired by the actors I’ve worked with – I can’t wait to see what they bring to the Cursed Child.”

Check out the video below to meet the cast!
