Yer a wizard Harry! It feels like yesterday when Harry Potter heard those life changing words on his 11th Birthday.

Here we are years later about to celebrate his 37th birthday. Sirius-ly?

“You know, at times, I forget how much you’ve grown. At times, I still see the small boy from the cupboard.”

Yes Dumbledore we agree with you, same here.

Well, now the Rio Theatre is giving you a chance to see just how much the boy wizard has grown up…


So here’s the drill, muggles.

On July 31, you can join other wizarding folks to celebrate the Chosen One’s birthday in a burlesque style at the Rio Theatre!

The organizers have promised a silly, sexy evening filled with all your favourite Harry Potter characters (wearing less than appropriate school uniforms).

That’s 50 points taken away Slytherin for sheer clothing!

As a part of the audience, you’re welcome and encouraged to wear your House Colours or anything else you fancy from the Harry Potter Universe.

We hear there will also be wands for sale and raffle prizes!! Ollivander’s is that you?

So come on down and in the words of the greatest wizard ever AKA Dumbledore …

Let the feast begin!

Wait not that feast … Yikes!

Ah that’s better. Cheers to Harry!!

When: July 31

Time: Doors open 7 pm, show starts 8 pm
