STARRING: Jeff Maschi, Danielle Illario, Jason Jackson, and Michael Jarmus.
WITH: theatrical lighting, costumes, Golden Age radio equipment, fog fx, and, of course, hundreds of sound effects.
PLUS: an extensive display of Potter accoutrement, themed snacks and drinks (alcoholic and non, natch), and a wide array of wizardly wonders/up close magic by Karnevil's resident warlock, Dr. J.R. Whitcomb (cosplaying Sirius Black).
ALSO: Several celebrated HP cosplayers in attendance (including V. Nigel Taylor, the foremost Snape cosplayer in the country). See below (and, yes, that's him NOT Rickman). Come pose for a pic w. the Potions Master!
OR: come in cosplay yourself! Skunk stripe a Cher wig, glue a ping pong ball to an eye patch, or just throw a stripey scarf around your neck. But, above all else, keep calm and carry a wand.
AND: Don't miss jazz vocalist Danielle Illario's gorgeous rendition of the "Merpeople's Song!"
Advance tickets: $25 (adult); $15 (15 & under). $5 rebate at the door if you come in costume (adult tix only)! Click HERE for tickets.
Trust me, folks, this WILL sell out. Only 75 tickets available!
