November 2021 | Puffs

Directed By Spencer Stephens

Puffs, or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic is a 2015 original play by New York-based playwright Matt Cox. The Middle School Theatre Department will stage the one-act version of the play for “Young Wizards” and our students are excited to participate in this fast-paced comedic retelling of an epic young adult series. Told from the humble perspective of a badger-themed student dorm, the magic and whimsy of a boarding school for wizards comes to our school (with puppets!). The show has been praised for its comedy and staging, and was nominated for the Off-Broadway Alliance Award for “Best Unique Theatrical Experience” in 2017. MV Studios’ production of the show is helmed by Spencer Stephens and Emily Pastore.
