Yesterday the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child stage production tweeted out the first official cast pictures of the Potter family. Today, it’s time to check out what Ron Weasley (Paul Thornley), Hermione Granger (Noma Dumezweni), and their daughter Rose Granger-Weasley (Cherrelle Skeete) look like. Paul Thornley told Pottermore that as the play begins:

It’s 19 years later when the play begins. Ron is married to Hermione Granger and they’re now the Granger-Weasleys. Our magnificent daughter Rose Granger-Weasley is about to start at Hogwarts, which is obviously a big day for everyone.

The production is about to start the preview performances that work out the kinks in stage direction, dialogue, special effects, and other sundry stage happenings. Preview performances are interesting because the play is often stopped and reset as the production works through each act. While most simply run through the play, depending on what problems crop up, it can be very interesting to see how issues are resolved on the fly. The official opening performance is July 30th in the London Palace Theater.
