'Harry Potter' parody comes to Purdue

October 2, 2013  


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.— "Potted Potter" will come to Purdue University's Loeb Playhouse at 7 and 9:30 p.m. Oct. 17. The performances are presented by Purdue Convocations.

"Potted Potter - The Unauthorized Harry Experience - a Parody by Dan and Jeff" takes on the challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real life game of Quidditch) into 70 minutes. Even if you don't know the difference between a horcrux and a Hufflepuff, Potted Potter will make you laugh. Created by two-time Olivier Award-nominated actors Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, "Potted Potter" is appropriate for ages 6 to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed).

Tickets are $38 for adults and $28 for those 18 years and younger, Purdue students and Ivy Tech Lafayette students. Tickets are available at the Elliott Hall and Stewart Center box offices at 765-494-3933, 800-914-SHOW or online through http://www.convocations.org.

Initiated in 1902, Purdue Convocations was one of the first professional performing arts presenters in the United States. Each year, Convocations offers the region 20-30 performances of widely varying genres. Purdue Convocations aims to promote frequent exposure to and familiarity with human cultural expression in a multitude of forms and media.
