Tickets for the Australian premiere season of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child have been flying out the Princess Theatre’s door since they went on sale in July last year. So you’re probably thinking you’ll need to book months and months in advance to score the best seats in the house, right? That’s generally true, but for those of us without the patience to wait half a year (and those of us who don’t have ready access to a time turner), there’s now a new way to get great tickets. The show’s producers have announced details of a digital ticket lottery, which will allow fans to score tickets for just $40 per part (so $80 for the full, two-part epic). The program is known as “Friday Forty” and is modelled on the lottery run for both the West End and Broadway productions of the show. There will be a minimum of 40 tickets available through the lottery for each performance, and while you can’t guarantee where those seats will be, producers are promising they’re some of the best in the theatre. Our favourite thing about Friday Forty? It’s a digital lottery, so you don’t even have to line up at the theatre, and can enter every week from anywhere you’ve got an internet connection. Here’s how it works: Entries are open from 12:01AM every Monday of the show’s season until 1am Friday. You can either enter at the official Cursed Child website or on the TodayTix app. The winners will be drawn at 1pm each Friday, and if you’re lucky enough to be selected you can purchase up to two tickets to performances the following week. There’s a maximum of two tickets per transaction, so we’d recommend you double your chances by finding a loyal friend and both entering the lottery each week. The first lottery is open now, so get your entry in and your Felix Felicis potion at the ready! Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is at the Princess Theatre from January 18 and booking through until December 1.
Big things come in small packages as Melbourne Museum goes miniature Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be like Alice and eat something to become huge, or drink something to become tiny? What would the world look like to a giant? What does it look like to a cat? You can find out at Melbourne Museum’s Mini Mega Model Museum, which plays with scale in more than 300 objects displayed in tiny and oversized galleries. There are model specimens to examine in the Zoomological Laboratory, hyper-realistic wax food in the life-sized cafeteria to play with and a fully furnished mini-mansion to pore over. The mini-mansion took more than 40 years to create, and museum visitors could spend hours appreciating every tiny detail. Kids can learn about model making and try their hand during the Mini Mega Makers Workshop. And for some very large-scale critters, have a stroll through the museum’s Dinosaur Walk.
