Celebrate the Canadian Premiere of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” at Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square
After a long wait, the Toronto production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will begin performances later this month. To celebrate the occasion, Mirvish Productions has announced a special event for Tuesday, May 31, at Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square.
From 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. EDT, fans can take part in a range of activities – and they will even get a chance to meet cast members from Cursed Child. A “double-decker #HopOnTheCursedChild bus” and the presence of the Hogwarts House banners will provide plenty of photo opportunities, and that isn’t all. Fans will also receive free Hogwarts House buttons, and – drum roll – “free handmade custom sweet treats courtesy of the boutique bakery & café” the Grand Order of Divine Sweets, the same bakery that hosted Toronto’s Kowalski Baked Goods pop-up event to promote the theatrical release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. (In fact, the first 100 people dressed as their favorite Harry Potter character will receive a Sorting Hat cupcake courtesy of the Grand Order of Divine Sweets.)
The event will also serve as an opportunity for fans to win tickets to see Cursed Child.
Post a photo of yourself at the event on social [media], use #CursedChildDayTO and you will be entered to win two (2) tickets (grand prize) to the June 19th opening night performance OR win one of four (4) exclusive Harry Potter and the Cursed Child prize packs (secondary prize).
