Completely Improvised Potter appearing at the Butterfly Club.

BY Soothplayers | 07-Jul-2017
Harry Potter: the boy who lived, the chosen one, seeker of snitches and horcruxes, the boy-wizard with glasses. We all know the story. But what if the story were different? Completely Improvised Potter recreates that magical feeling of picking up the book for the first time, telling a new story in a world we know and love. The cast of Completely Improvised Potter solemnly swear that they are up to no good as they create brand new adventures before your very eyes. Using an audience-suggested title drawn from the Goblet of Fire, Completely Improvised Potter will conjure a new year at Hogwarts like magic! More magical than Merlin and funnier than a trip to Zonko’s, the show will appeal to Gryffindor and Slytherin alike.
