Here's how to get dirt cheap tix to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

2 min read


Having blown all our money during the post-Christmas sales period, we're a little short on dough for tickets to the upcoming Aussie stage production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in Melbourne.

We're pretty sure we're not the only ones in that little first-world predicament.

But fear not because there's a way to score ultra-cheap tix to the ultra-hyped play!

A weekly Friday Forty lottery will be held when Cursed Child kicks off and lucky winners will be able to score tix for a (Ron) measly $40.

That's right, $40.

This isn't a lie or cruel joke currently hiding underneath an Invisibility Cloak. Having said that though, there are only 40 of these $40 tickets up for grabs in Friday's lottery each week and you have to sign up with TodayTix (right here) to be in with a chance. 

Now here's the most important part: the very first Friday Forty is live right now as we type and you can throw your galleon in the vault at the official Cursed Child website right HERE.

Should you be lucky enough to score some tix, there are some finer deets you need to know.

Since the Cursed Child is such a massive play, it is split into two parts, meaning you'll need tix to two shows for the whole story.

This means you'll have to fork out $40 per ticket per part for a total of $80 for the entire Cursed Child experience. There's also a maximum limit of two tix per part for the winner, so going to see the all of the Cursed Child with someone will cost $160.

Hey, that's still pretty damn good so we're not complaining!

As for when the play starts, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will kick off at Melbourne's Princess Theatre on February 23, with preview performances starting next week.

If it's STILL too expensive for you, you'll just have to make do with binging on all the Harry Potter movies on Netflix.
