Meet the New Members of the Cast of “Cursed Child” London
Get your wands ready to welcome the Year 4 cast of the West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, who will be stepping onto the stage at the Palace Theatre in May.

Speaking about the new cast members, UK associate director Pip Minnithorpe revealed that he is excited to see what they will bring to the characters.
We have lots of exciting new actors coming into the company, and all of those actors will bring a fresh take on the characters that we know and love.
