Seven increasingly eventful years at a certain school of magic and magic

Puffs by Matt Cox
Director: Nick Bublitz

Theatre South Playhouse in Dr. Phillips is now casting for our next main stage production of Puffs (The Full Two Act Version). Seeking a diverse cast of actors of all ages that can portray both teenagers and adults, and one actor of any age that can portray our narrator who, well... narrates.

*The Director is only seeing actors age 16 and up for this production.

For seven years a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs... who just happened to be there too. A tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world.

The New York Times proclaims PUFFS, “A FAST-PACED ROMP through the ‘Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic.’ For POTTERphiliacs who grew up alongside Potter and are eager to revisit that world, ‘PUFFS’ exudes a jovial, winking fondness for all things Harry!”

Auditions will be held on Monday, June 17th with time-slots beginning at 6:00pm.

*Some callbacks may be held on Tuesday, June 18th at 6-9pm.

Actors will be asked to read directly from the script. (A selection of sides will be emailed to you once you are registered for a time slot.)
