“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” Casting Underway!

We’ve been wondering for a while if casting for the upcoming West End play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, has begun. Although we don’t have any information on any castings yet, we did overhear a snippet of information a few weeks ago, which made us think that casting might well be under way.

Now, it seems that things are getting serious.

A British casting agency for child actors and models, Signature Model Management, has posted a casting call for the play for girls ages 14 and of a specific height.

It sounds like the casting process is well under way, and we can’t wait to find out who is going to be appearing on stage in these roles. After all, the play premieres in May, so there’s not long to go, and rehearsals must be getting underway very soon. Hopefully, once they do, we’ll learn more about the casting!

We can’t help but wonder if this casting call is for a specific role. Could it be one of the Potters or a Weasley? Or a Hogwarts student?
