Homecoming Headliner: Tom Felton

Tom Felton, Harry Potter’s Draco Malfoy is virtually joining us for Homecoming this year! We are so excited to have an evening of fun and games with Tom and some lucky students. The show will include our own Mason version of the #pottachallenge. Just like on TikTok, students will do their best “Pottah” for Tom and he’ll be the judge to see who can rival his most irritated tone! Next, Tom will play a rousing round of “Quiplash” with students where they get to compete against each other and our hosts for some fun prizes. Throughout the show, we’ll ask student-submitted questions for Tom to answer. And then to round out the show, Tom is going to compose an improvisational song on the spot with his trusty ukulele to give Mason a song that is just for us! Log in to the show for some other fun surprises, too.

Press Release:
Tom Felton, best known for playing 'Draco Malfoy', Harry Potter's Hogwarts nemesis, is coming to Mason to celebrate Homecoming! He's won the MTV Movie Award for "Best Villain" two years in a row and can be seen in a host of films and tv productions including 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes', 'Murder in the First', and 'Risen'. Now, you can catch him on TikTok, Twitter, and instagram hosting live music events and interacting with followers in the #pottahchallenge, among other fun things! Come join us on February 6th at 7 pm to interact (virtually) with our guest, Tom Felton.
