About the Play:

Puffs or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic is a full-length comedy by Matt Cox. For seven years a certain young, bespectacled English wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not that boy wizard's story. This is the story of The Puffs... a lovable group of misfits who just happened to be there too. Puffs has become a cult hit with Harry Potter fans.

Puffs is a Harry Potter inspired parody. Some people are born to do great things. Some people change the world. Some people rise from humble beginnings to beat back the forces of darkness in the face of insurmountable odds. Puffs is the story of the people who sit in class next to those people. This clever and inventive play never goes more than a minute without a laugh giving you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three potential heroes just trying to make it through a magic school that proves to be very dangerous for children. Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders with a thing for badgers who are so lovable and relatable, you'll leave the theatre wishing they were in the stories all along. Their hilariously heartfelt and epic journey takes the classic story to new places and re-imagines what a boy wizard hero can be.

Puffs premiered in 2015 at The People's Improv Theater off-off-Broadway in New York City. It was supposed to be performed five times only but ultimately ran for eight months. Then it moved to off-Broadway's Elektra Theater in 2016 and then transferred in 2017 to New World Stages were it ran until 2019. The play has become a popular choice for school and community theatre productions.

Cast: 5 female, 5 male (alternate casting 1 female, 1 male with doubling)
