Princeton High School Theater Department will present its fall play Puffs, Or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic (Two Act for Young Wizards) by Matt Cox on November 12 at 7:00 p.m and November 14 at 2:00 PM in the Sally Skinner Auditorium.
The world has been enthralled with the story of Harry Potter for the last twenty years. Puffs is a hilarious comedy from the perspective of the least represented and respected house at Hogwarts, Hufflepuff. Any Potter fans will revel in the jokes and puns about the ridiculous situations the other students were put through during the Potter years. The play details the amazing adventures of Wayne Hopkins, Megan Jones, and Oliver Rivers, a trio of Puffs trying to make it through Hogwarts at the same time as Harry Potter, whose existence causes a lot of disruption in the lives of all of the other students. Cox’s principal characters are brought to life by seniors Trent Goodale (Narrator) and Andrea Imsland (Megan Jones), sophomore Brayden Schwartz (Wayne Hopkins), and freshman Onne Adams (Oliver Rivers). Other cast members play an ensemble of characters and feature seniors Riley Jansenand Rachel Kirkpatrick; junior Emma Frost; sophomores Mark Kirkpatrick and Brennan Roden; and freshmen Jordan VandeVenter, Kimberly Imsland, Ella Grey, and Addison Compton.
Joan Simpson will direct the production with assistance from Director of Drama Events Gary Passmore, Student Director Mary Underwood, and Stage Managers Jacklynn Cartwright and Jack Davis. Tickets may be purchased at the door–$7 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Princeton High School students will get in free with their student IDs. Puffs is presented by special arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
