Education News Broadway Licensing Global Launches U.K. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Secondary School Edition Website

Designed for teenage performers, the new edition of the Tony- and Olivier-winning work is now available to schools worldwide.


Wands at the ready! Following the recent worldwide release of the high school edition of Broadway and West End's Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Broadway Licensing Global has launched a new website specifically for U.K. groups looking to perform the play's Secondary School Edition. The new site allows for transactions in Great British Pounds, and features customer service localized to U.K. secondary schools.

The revision, specifically designed for high school and secondary school productions, has been developed by the work's original creative team, including playwright Jack Thorne, director John Tiffany, producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender, and with sign-off by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. The adaptation, announced last year, shortens the piece's run time, along with offering solutions that make the professional production's high-tech wizardry possible regardless of budget size. Licensing packages also include music and a media kit. Purchase a perusal script here.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany. The play takes place 19 years after the source material book series, and follows Harry Potter's son Albus and his friendship with Scorpius, the son of rival Draco Malfoy, in their first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

“We have seen a staggering amount of licensing volume come through our website,” says BLG Chief Executive Officer Ted Chapin in a statement. “This expanded version of the site is another pre-planned iteration in our roll out to allow for more region-specific convenience to license Cursed Child in secondary schools.”

The original West End production of Cursed Child premiered in 2016, receiving 11 Olivier Award nominations and winning nine, including Best New Play. The Broadway transfer opened at The Lyric Theatre in 2018, then received 10 Tony Award nominations and won six, including Best Play.
