Harry Potter’s enemy in Fringe musical parody

Harry Potter’s arch enemy Lord Voldemort is at the centre of a fun musical parody at this year’s Fringe.

Before Voldemort became He Who Must Not Be Named, he was just Tom Riddle, another moody teenager at Hogwarts.

Join him in the Voldemort and the Teenage Hogwarts Musical Parody, the Fringe’s brand new hilarious musical adventure as he learns the ways of love, proper snake maintenance and The Unforgivable Curses.

Fresh from sold out performances at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles, two of the co-creators of Fringe sell-out smash-hit Thrones! The Musical bring you a Harry Potter musical parody that is sure to leave you spellbound. Packed with magic, hormones and more than a few murders, Voldemort and the Teenage Hogwarts Musical Parody tells the little-known tale of how Tom Riddle was once in a rock band with a giant squid, how he learned how to kiss from a snake, and that he once had a Hufflepuff girlfriend…

The production comes from Chris Grace and Zach Reino.

Chris Grace co-created Thrones! The Musical and has appeared seven years in a row at the Fringe with Baby Wants Candy. He originated the role of Christian Grey in 50 Shades! The Musical at the Mound and off-Broadway, and performs comedy all over the world. He has appeared on NBC’s acclaimed drama This Is Us, Comedy Central’s Broad City, ABC Digital’s Serious Music, and frequently appears as the character Jerry on NBC’s sitcom Superstore.

Actor, writer and composer Zach is house performer at LA’s famous Upright Citizens Brigade where he performs with many shows, including Baby Wants Candy. His television appearances include Crazy Ex Girlfriend, Conan and A.P. Bio, and he has written for ABC Digital, Nickelodeon, FunnyorDie and more. He is also co-writer/co-composer of Fringe smash hit Thrones! The Musical and co-hosts Off Book: The Improvised Musical Podcast with his writing partner Jessica McKenna.

The show is co-written by Richie Root and Fiona Landers. Additional music by Scott Passarella.
