Muggles stuck in this realm can rejoice, because Harry Potter magic will hit the stage next year.

The Associated Press reports the universe that showed us the importance of a handy horcrux is coming to a London theater in the form of a performance entitled “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.”

From title alone we imagine the play centers on Potter befriending some chum who was born into rooting for the Chicago Cubs, but that’s just pure conjecture on our part.

Author J.K. Rowling pulled back the curtain on this nice treat for fans on Twitter, delivering the scant details on what we know about the future production.

After tweeting on the 18th anniversary of her book, “Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone,” Rowling dropped this bombshell:

She then explained why Potter would make an entry onto the stage rather back into the annals of the written word:

And Rowling offered this important addendum tot he big news:

Those fidgeting with excitement can head over to a website for Harry Potter the Play, which Rowling tweeted out in kind. 

The website does offer a firm location for the play with a rather vague date for its opening: “Based on an original, new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne will receive its world premiere in London's West End in the summer of 2016 at the Palace Theatre.”

At the moment you can merely register to buy tickets, of which will go on sale this fall. We would recommend using any available felix felicis in order to grab a seat for what will be an extremely popular affair in London.
