    The WHS Players to present “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”

    The Drama Department at Wells High School has announced that it has been granted one of the first licenses in the United States to present the high school edition of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.” This play is based on an original story by J. K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne and will appear on stage at the Olenn Performing Arts Center at WHS from November 20 to November 23, 2024. Producer for the Drama Department, Andrea Hernandez, indicated that more information about this event will be forthcoming.

    “We are beyond excited to put on such a prestigious and well-known show,” commented WHS Director of Dramatics and director of this play Andrew Lopez. “The magic of this franchise will be a fun challenge to bring to life.”

    The high school edition of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” transports audiences back to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where old friendships are tested and new adventures unfold. Set nineteen years after the events of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," this thrilling tale follows the journey of Harry Potter's youngest son, Albus Severus Potter, as he grapples with the weight of his family legacy and embarks on a quest to confront the past.

    “We have an amazing opportunity to put on a show that pushes our students and faculty to perform at the next level," explained producer Hernandez. "We are going to be making people's childhood fantasies a reality. Harry Potter is a larger-than-life name, and we feel honored to be the first school in Maine to put on this show."

    With its timeless themes of friendship, courage, and the enduring power of love, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” offers a spellbinding theatrical experience for audiences of all ages. From dazzling spell-casting to heart-pounding adventures, this production will leave audiences on the edge of their seats.
