HP Fan Trips Improv-Comedy Night in Orlando to Benefit Make-A-Wish of Central and Northern Florida
“A few years ago, we were honored by a young lady, a Make-A-Wish recipient, who chose our HP tours as her wish fulfillment,” said Jeannie Barresi, CEO of HP Fan Trips™ which has transported thousands of Harry Potter fans on J.K. Rowling-inspired adventures since 2003. “The family had a fantastic trip and we were so grateful for having been given this opportunity to create such a great memory for them. We’d like to give back to Make-A-Wish through this event to offer other children the opportunity to have their wishes fulfilled.”
“For Potter fans, our tours are so much more than vacations,” Barresi continues. “Now that Harry, Ron and Hermione have completed their adventures at Hogwarts and Rowling has put down her pen, fans can keep the magic alive by sharing their passion for the books they’ve loved since childhood with like-minded mortals in sunny Florida. Our comedy evening will be a special treat, as it will bring characters from Potterdom to the stage for interaction with the audience.”
Bulgarian actor Stanislav Ianevski will be among the stars of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire who will interact with guests, pose for photographs and sign autographs. Fans will remember Ianevski charging across Hogwarts’ skies on his broomstick as Quidditch player Viktor Krum. Joining Ianevski will be British actor Louis Cordice, who portrayed Blaise Zabini, one of Malfoy’s friends, in several Potter movies. Adding to the fun will be comedian Nick Paul, who could make Dumbledore proud with his quirky brand of mime and magic. Paul has performed comedy/magic internationally and has trained with Wicked, Blue Man Group, The Second City Touring Company and Cirque Du Soleil. Tickets start at just $15.
In addition to the improv-comedy night with film stars, HP Fan Trips™ offers Florida vacations which include a private VIP Gala party, admission to other theme park attractions in Orlando; a scavenger hunt with prizes, four or five nights at the four-star Melia Orlando Hotel in Celebration, Florida, and transfers.
