Along with Noma Dumezweni playing Hermione,  Jamie Parker will  be playing Harry Potter, while Paul Thornley will be playing Ron Weasley.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.
