Puffs! Is an exciting ensemble comedy about a certain wizarding world where a boy with a peculiar forehead scar saves the world. In Puffs, we don’t focus on this particular wizard, instead we focus on his classmates from the “Puffs” house. As we get to know our underdogs and learn to embrace our inner Puff, we also come across familiar characters such as a “Certain Greasy Haired Potion Teacher,” “Blondo Malfoy,” and “Mister Voldy.



There will be two casts for Puffs, drawing students from across all three campuses. The Red Cast will rehearse at CP from 4:00-6:00PM on Mondays and Thursdays. The Blue Cast will rehearse at MB from 4:00-6:00PM on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.


In addition to these rehearsals, we will also have 4 Saturday rehearsals on 10/8, 10/29, 11/5, 11/12 (The Red cast rehearsing from 8-11 and Blue Cast rehearsing from 12-3). Although there are only two casts, both the Red and Blue cast are open to students from all campuses, although parents must arrange for transportation to respective campus rehearsals.  We will attempt to facilitate carpools as much as possible.


Tech Week and Performances:

Students must be available for all scheduled technical rehearsals and all performances.  Performances for the Red Cast are Sunday December 4th at 2:00 and 6:30PM. Performances for the Blue cast are Saturday December 3rd at 2:00 and 6:30PM. All performances and tech rehearsals will take place at the Schoolhouse theater in Parker. Both casts will join forces for an all-day tech day field trip during the school day on November the 29th, as well as an evening rehearsal on Wednesday November 30th.
