“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” Premiere and Opening Dates for San Francisco Announced

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is slowly making its way all around the world, and the next stop is San Francisco, California. After having to overcome some legal battles before the show could be finalized, fans will be happy to hear that the dates for the West Coast premiere for Cursed Child have finally arrived.

Yesterday, organizers of the show announced that it will kick off its performances at the Curran Theatre on October 23, with the official opening night taking place on December 1. Tickets are set to go on sale to the general public on March 14 at 11:00 a.m., so save the date right now because they are sure to sell at lightning-fast speed. As usual, fans can sign up on Cursed Child‘s website to get priority access to purchase presale tickets. The registration for priority access is now open and will close on March 3.

If you don’t get tickets for the first few shows, have no fear – there is another bit of good news. Producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender have announced that the show will have an open-ended run.

We look forward to sharing the wonder and magic of this astonishing show for as long as audiences will have us.

This means that you should have ample opportunity to get your hands on some precious tickets to watch the magic unfold on stage. You can also look forward to the cast that will be announced in the months leading up to the show – feel free to start speculating about who will be playing whom. The standards will surely be high, with Cursed Child having garnered 25 major United States theater awards, of which six are Tony Awards. It has also racked up its fair share of awards in the United Kingdom, with 24 major theater awards to its name.

The president and CEO of the San Francisco Travel Association, Joe D’Alessandro, expressed his excitement over the show’s long-awaited arrival, saying that audiences in the Bay Area will love all the magic that is about to come their way.

We are very excited that San Francisco will be the exclusive West Coast location for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. The magic of the story and the stagecraft are perfect for audiences here, whether they are visitors from around the world or residents of the Bay Area and the region.

With all of the exciting news now out in the open with even more to come, we can already hear the communal sigh of Potter fans in San Francisco and beyond: “Is it October yet?”

Growing up, I was a massive fan of Harry Potter and my love for the stories grew as I got older. It’s no surprise then that I love writing about all things Potter related. When I’m not writing about all the magic, you’ll find me reading (probably something Harry Potter related), listening to music, or writing some songs.
