    We live in a millenial world. And there are few if any that grew through the late 90’s and early 00’s that didn’t read, get hooked on and then ultimately addicted to the Harry Potter book series. And the movies incorporated amazing actors like Maggie Smith, Gary Oldman and Robbie Coltrane with a young cast that brought us the amazing talents of Daniel Radcliff, Robert Pattinson and Emma Watson.

    We couldn’t get enough of “The Boy Who Lived” as he and his somewhat questionable companions, Ron and Hermione, sought to kill “He Who Will Not Be Named.” They were action-packed adventure stories that mixed in a healthy dose of fantasy and preached the importance of friendship, loyalty and sacrifice.

    That being said…The Roast crew is about to shred any or all wistfulness and whimsy you may hold for Harry and company, for they are the target of the latest in the “Celebrity Roast” series at The Bards Town.

    Trust me, there will be no magic left in their wands after these guys get ahold of them.

    The cast includes some of the usual faces, playing many of the beloved characters you expect to see at something like this; Kent Carney as Harry Potter and Sean Keller as Master of Ceremonies Gandalf the Grey. Not to mention Tyler Jackson (coming in from Chicago) as Ron Weasley, Kate Sedgwick as Hermione Granger, Jacob Thomas Emmanuel Reber as Severus Snape, Daniel Craig Williams as Lord Voldemort, Mandee McKelvey as J.K. Rowling, Raanan Hershberg as Hagrid, Mark Parris as Gollum, Patrick Passafiume as Bilbo Baggins and supposedly a few other surprise guests might show up, as well.

    So if your nostalgia has a thick skin, you should make it out to The Bards Town this Friday or Saturday for one of the two shows playing each night, one at 7:30 p.m. and another at 10 p.m. Tickets run $10 in advance and $15 at the door.

    About Brent Owen

    Born and raised in Louisville, I have lived here most of my life (except during a short furlough, when I, lovelorn and naive, followed a girl to Baton Rouge). My roots are here, my family, my friends, and my life are all here. I work primarily as a free-lance writer for a few local and regional publications. I have also written two books (one a memoir, the other a novel) that barring some divine intervention, will probably never see the light of day. I find myself deeply ingrained in the local bar scene, or perhaps better said, I often indulge in the local drinking culture. I love music, movies, comedy, and really just about any other live performance art.
