Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

(Last Update: 12:34 PDT 18 March 2012 )

This production by West End Studio Theater on 5 June 2008 was the culmination of an 8-session after-school theater group at the Broadway Playhouse. Abe was very pleased to have the lead as Harry Potter, and one of his classmates from school was delighted to be Hermione Granger. This was his 3rd Harry Potter play, but the first time he's had such a big part in one. It was his 15th production with Pisces Moon or West End Studio Theater.

Abe had over 100 lines in this production and was the tallest kid in the play---after his next Harry Potter production this summer, it will be time for him to move up to the teen company.

The director, Eleni Giannis, did a good job in the short time available for getting the kids up to speed. There was a very small amount of prompting needed (for some of the kids this was their first time on stage), but overall the production went smoothly.
