“Cursed Child” Broadway Announces Year 3 Cast
The Broadway production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has announced its Year 3 cast, with an array of new and familiar faces set to take to the stage.
In the first of two announcement videos, it was revealed that James Snyder will remain in the role of Harry and Diane Davis will continue in the role of Ginny Potter. Joining the Potter family is James Romney, who is taking over the role of Albus Potter from Nicholas Podany. Romney is currently the understudy for the role of Albus and describes himself as a “proud Ravenclaw and very big Potter fan.”
The Malfoy family sees Aaron Bartz taking over from Jonno Roberts as Draco and Brady Dalton Richards replacing Bubba Weiler as Scorpius. Similarly to Romney, Bartz is a current member of the Cursed Child company. In a video announcing the new cast, Bartz describes himself as a “very happy to be here Hufflepuff,” whereas Richards revealed he may need some help from the Sorting Hat.
The Granger-Weasley family sees Jenny Jules and Nadia Brown continue in the roles of Hermione and Rose, respectively. Returning to the role of Ron Weasley is Paul Thornley, who originated the role in the West End and was a member of the Broadway Year 1 cast. Thornley’s casting was announced in the second of two videos posted to the Cursed Child social media accounts.
While the other cast members were in New York ready to begin rehearsal, Thornley was not among them. In a short video call skit with Snyder, the two actors played on the difference between American and British date formats.
Also joining the cast in a variety of roles are Gabriel Amoroso, Quinn Blades, Michela Cannon, Judith Lightfoot Clarke, Malcolm Fuller, Stephanie Gomérez, Jax Jackson, Spencer LaRue, Dan Piering, Alex Michael Stoll, and Maya Thomas.
The Year 3 cast will take to the stage at the Lyric Theatre on March 18, 2020. The current cast’s last performance will take place on March 15, 2020. More tickets for the Broadway production of Cursed Child have been released for dates up to September 6, 2020. Check out the Cursed Child website for further information.
