What is Pottervision?

Four performers are all set to recreate Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone but, when two of them drop out on the day (and take all the props and costumes with them), Tom and Lukas have to go it alone and make do with the limited resources they have. 

With DIY props, charity shop costumes and both performers having to play multiple characters, Pottervision is a wig-changing, wizard-impersonating, audience-immersing Ford Anglia ride through all the ridiculousness of that first magical movie. 

What could possibly go wrong? There's only one way to find out! Come and see us at one of our upcoming shows. Appropriate for ages 14+, Pottervision is a fantastical spectacular for everyone from the most casual fan to the most avid squib.
