San Diego Junior Theatre Presents PUFFS, March 1-17

San Diego Junior Theatre, the nation's longest-running youth theatre program, continues its 76th Season with Puffs!

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. Set against a backdrop of spells, potions and magical creatures, Puffs is a comedic and inspiring tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world.

 

Filled with uproarious humor and poignant storytelling, audiences will be delighted at the heartfelt journey of these lovable misfits as they navigate challenges, forge unlikely friendships and discover the true meaning of loyalty and self-worth.

 

Junior Theatre welcomes back Hunter Brown to helm the production, having previously directed last season's hugely successful How I Became a Pirate.

 

Puffs will run Fridays at 7pm and Saturday and Sundays at 2pm from March 1 to 17, 2024.

Friday, March 8 is Puffs Character Night! Are you a Brave, Snake, Smart or Puff? Come dressed as your favorite character from the wizarding world!

Junior Theatre continues to provide an ASL-interpreted performance for each production. The ASL-interpreted performance for Puffs will be Saturday, March 16 at 2pm. For optimal seating, members of the Deaf and hard-of-hearing community can reach out directly to the box office at boxoffice@juniortheatre.com.
