Broadway Licensing Global Opens Up Licensing for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child School Edition

Broadway Licensing Global, alongside Sonia Friedman Productions, Colin Callender, and Harry Potter Theatrical Productions, proudly announces that licensing for the school edition of the award-winning and record-breaking Broadway and West End play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, is now available worldwide. The school edition is specifically tailored for high school and secondary school productions and can be licensed for productions beginning as early as fall 2024.


“We are thrilled that schools now have the opportunity to bring the magic of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to their stages,” said producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender, “and we cannot wait to see how the show comes to life at high schools and secondary schools all over the world.”


In September 2023, upon announcement of the acquisition of the amateur licensing rights to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, BLG began collaborating with the original creative team of the show to adapt the script for high school and secondary schools. This process has involved creating a new, shorter runtime, and making the intricate staging of the original production more accessible for school theatres.  The goal of the process was to ensure production success for any school which licenses the show.


In addition to the license, an official production package – including actor scripts, required music, media kit, and more – will be shipped to schools beginning this summer, in advance of fall productions.


“From the beginning of this partnership with the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child team, our intention was to put educational theatre programs first, which meant creating a version of the show that is manageable for schools of all sizes, budgets, and technical capabilities – and is still fun to produce.” says Ted Chapin, Interim Chief Executive Officer of BLG.
