The Tony-winning Broadway production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will celebrate the spooky season with Halloween fun and giveaways at every Tuesday performance during October, including an ultimate Halloween celebration October 31 at the Lyric.
Each Tuesday will offer a different experience, from complimentary Dark Mark temporary tattoos for audience members (October 3) to offerings of a non-alcoholic Spiced Golden Snitch mocktail (October 10), a special Harry Potter pin created for Halloween plus trivia and ghost stories (October 17), and magic from Skylar Fox (October 24).
The October 31 performance will close out the month with a Halloween bash, offering audience members a special photo op step-and-repeat featuring a set from the show and a costume contest. The top 10 costumes will be featured on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child's social media channels for followers to vote on the top winner. The theatre will be decked out with professionally carved pumpkins, and Hershey's will provide audience members with plenty of Halloween treats.
