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.
