“Since it first opened in London in 2016, only three years ago, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has established itself as one of the most accomplished and remarkable productions in theatre history,” said David Mirvish, in a statement. “I can’t express strongly enough how honoured we are that Sonia and Colin have chosen Toronto to be the next location for their magnificent production.”

Original producers Sonia Friedman, Colin Callender, and Harry Potter Theatrical Productions will bring the record-breaking production next year.

“Toronto, with its rich history of culture and the arts, is the perfect city in which to stage our magical production in Canada,” said Friedman and Callender, in a joint statement.

“We’re especially thrilled to be producing the Canadian premiere with David Mirvish and his company and that the historic Ed Mirvish Theatre —  which will be specially refurbished for our show — will be Cursed Child’s Canadian home.”

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.

Exact performance dates and ticketing details will be announced at a later date.
