Australian audiences are getting to see Cursed Child in Melbourne for the first time, as the cast prepare for preview performances at the Princess Theatre. It’s been a rather fun week down-under, with dress rehearsals and ticket giveaways delivering the magic to fans in abundance.

Cursed Child’s preview performances officially open in sunny Australia this week.

Finally, famously snowy Hogwarts will be getting a bit of sun! Well, kind of.

Prior to the preview performances opening, the good folks behind Cursed Child put on a rather exciting fan event over the weekend, giving away 700 tickets for the final dress rehearsal.

As you can imagine, a few Harry Potter appreciators were pretty happy about that, queuing up in their droves at the Princess Theatre to nab the tickets.

Oh, to be on the other side of the world right now joining in on all of the action.

Stay tuned for some more Cursed Child Melbourne goodies later on this week. Cursed Child’s official opening day is still to come in Melbourne, with the big event coming soon on 23 February.
