Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — A parody of the popular Harry Potter books is coming back to the country for another run — and another way to tell the story of the boy wizard who defeated He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.

After a successful stint in 2012, 2013, and 2014 Potted Potter will be coming back in March this year to the delight of fans.

Playing to full houses all over the world, Potter Potter takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real-life game of Quidditch) into 70 hilarious minutes.

This fantastically funny show features all your favorite characters, a special appearance from a fire-breathing dragon, endless costumes, brilliant songs, ridiculous props, and a generous helping of Hogwarts magic!

Created by double Olivier Award Best Entertainment nominees Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, the show is a must-see for Potterheads and a great introduction to the series for anyone who’s ever wondered what all the fuss is about. Even if you don’t know the difference between a Horcrux and a Hufflepuff, Potted Potter will make you roar with laughter.

This brilliant family entertainment is perfect for ages six to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed).

Potted Potter made its debut in 2005 as a five-minute entertainment for fans at a bookstore in London who were waiting the release of the sixth book in the series.

The show grew from there into a full-length stage production, first seen at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2006, and has since toured internationally for over a decade, securing an Olivier Award nomination as Best Entertainment and Family Show.

Potter Potter will have nine shows on March 20 at the Maybank Performing Arts Theater, BGC Arts Center.
