A Very Potter Musical

Updated on November 27, 2014

The Fan Made Harry Potter Musical

A Very Potter Musical is a Harry Potter fan musical produced by a group of University of Michigan students called Team StarKid. The play was originally preformed in April of 2009 as Harry Potter: The Musical, a two act musical parody that featured major elements from all seven books and an original score. The musical was posted on their YouTube channel, but was removed in June for re-editing. The musical, retitled "A Very Potter Musical", was posted again on July 5th.

The plot of "A Very Potter Musical" begins with Harry's second year at Hogwarts. Professor Quirrell, the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, reinstates the House Cup Tournament, and a champion from each House is chosen to compete. But when Voldemort uses the tournament to fulfill a plot to return to his body, things take a turn for the grim for Harry and his friends, who must find and destroy Voldemort's Horcruxes before it's too late.

On the day "A Very Potter Musical" debuted on YouTube it became an immediate success and made the StarKid channel the highest viewed channel of the day. Due to the popularity of "A Very Potter Musical" on YouTube, the StarKid team went on to produce three additional, full-length musicals; Me and My D*** in October of 2009, A Very Potter Sequel in May of 2010 and Starship in February of 2011.

"A Very Potter Sequel" (also known as A Very Potter Musical Sequel or A Very Potter Musical 2) premiered at the 2010 HPEF Harry Potter Conference Infinitus and was released on YouTube on July 22, 2010. The sequel features the Death Eaters using the Time-Turner to go back in time to Harry's first year in Hogwarts.

Harry and his pals are in for adventure when the Dark Lord returns from the dead to take revenge on The Boy Who Lived! So take a ride on Voldemort's flying machine and get ready to go back to Hogwarts!

Not Alone lyrics A Very Potter Musical

A Very Potter Musical Lyrics

GINNY:

I've been alone,

surrounded by darkness

and I've seen how heartless

the world can be.

And I've seen you crying,

you felt like it's hopeless.

I'll always do my best

to make you see.

Cause baby, you're not alone,

cause you're here with me

and nothings ever gonna bring us down,

cause nothing can keep me from lovin' you

and you know its true.

It don't matter what'll come to be,

our love is all we need to make it through.

Now I know it ain't easy,

(HARRY: No it ain't easy)

but it ain't hard trying.

(HARRY: it's so hard trying)

Every time I see you smiling

and I feel you so close to me,

tell me:

GINNY & HARRY:

That baby you're not alone,

cause you're here with me

and nothings ever gonna bring us down,

cause nothing can keep me from lovin' you

and you know its true.

It don't matter what'll come to be,

our love is all we need to make it through.

HARRY:

Now I still have trouble,

I trip and stumble,

trying to make sense of things some times.

I look for reasons,

but I don't need 'em,

all I need is to look in your eyes

and I realize ...

RON: Hey Harry!

HARRY, RON, HERMIONE, & GINNY:

Baby you're not alone,

cause you're here with me

and nothings ever gonna bring us down,

cause nothing can keep me from lovin' you

and you know its true.

It don't matter what'll come to be,

our love is all we need to make it through.

HARRY:

Cause it don't matter what'll come to be,

our love is all we need to make it through.

Draco: Now you're just being cute. I CAN'T GO TO PIGFARTS. IT'S ON MAAARS, YOU NEEED A ROCKETSHIP. Do you have a rocketship, Potter? I bet you do. You know, not all of us inherited enough money to buy out NASA when our parents died; Look at this. Rocketship Potter. Starkid Potter. Moooonshoes Potter. TRAVERSING THE GALAXY FOR INTERGALATIC TRAVELS TO PIGFARTS.

Maybe a nine. NO MORE than a nine point five. Because there is ALWAYS room for improvement. Me? I would be a ten, because I'm Worth it! " -Draco-

      Okay, let me just say that this site was an amazing idea. I am absolutely obsessed with Starkid. I love AVPM, but I have to say that Starship is my favorite play. Lauren Lopez is a genius. I'm even more obsessed with her than the actual group.

      I guess some of my favorite AVPM quotes are:

      -"Just put some tape on it, it's fine"~Draco Malfoy

      -"Beautiful? Are you nuts? She's more like supermegafoxyawesomehot"-Harry Potter

      -"Ugh! Squirt? Never mind, I'll stay dehydrated"~Draco Malfoy

      -"Holy shit, Mom! You killed her! I thought you were gonna tuck in her shirt or make her do the dishes or something"~Ron Weasley

      -"RACIST SISTER"~Ron Weasley

      `"Good luck with whatever you were talking about and I hope that you and Voldemort live happily ever after. As for me, I'm gonna curl up in my sock drawer and sleep for days. 'Cause I'm never gonna be happy again"~Ron Weasley

      "You think killing people might make them like you but it doesn't, it just makes people dead"

      -Voldemort

      "You wait till my father hears about this he'll say: Draco you goddamn little poofter why don't you stop your whining and learn to use the potty like a normal human being?"

      -Draco Malfoy

      "Did you hear something?" "No. Only quiet. Maybe...one raindrop"

      -Draco to Goyle

      Fun fact about the first question on the quiz, the first book is The Philosopher's Stone in the UK but in the US it's called The Sorcerer's Stone because people in the US didn't think that kids would want to read The Philosopher's Stone so after conversing they decided to change the title to The Sorcerer's Stone.
