A gay Hogwarts comedy
Taking place during the Tri-Wizard Tournament (which sadly isn't a wizard three-way), a gay Hufflepuff becomes obsessed with Cedric Diggory and tries to help him win the tournament, going to any lengths from casting spells and creating potions sometimes with catastrophic results! All the while, battling the obstacles that any gay student faces at school.
So Slither-in to this Chamber of Secrets and be entertained by a story filled with every Harry Potter innuendo, fantastic musical numbers and some spell-binding onstage magic!
Although this production is set at Hogwarts and has a Harry Potter theme to it, it is in no way affiliated or endorsed by The Wizarding World or Harry Potter, Warner Bros, or JK Rowling, with ZERO proceeds going to these organisations or individuals. The performer, venue and writer do not support JK Rowling and all parties are supporters and advocates of Trans rights. This performance does denounce JK Rowling's Anti-Trans statements.
