Well, the first public showing of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has happened London’s West End Theater and word is very positive.

And, now that it’s happened, a new image has appeared of Hogwarts as it appears on the stage as shared but the show’s official Twitter (see below).

The released image shows banners featuring the flags of the four houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw. The image features students around Rose Granger-Weasley, played by Cherrelle Skeete, the daughter of Ron Weasley and Hermione.

The show and JK Rowling herself are tweeting #KeepTheSecret to entourage fans that have seen the show to keep details quite so as not to ruin it for others. We thick that’s a good idea.

The show officially opens on July 31st.

Here’s the official synopsis:

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
