University Theatre in the Youngstown State University Department of Visual & Dramatic Arts, will open its final show of the 2021-2022 season with “Puffs, Or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic” on Friday, April 1.
“Puffs” is a 2015 original play by New York-based playwright Matt Cox. The play is a comedic retelling of the Harry Potter book series by J. K. Rowling, but from the perspective of the “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. This is a tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world.
The show’s run is scheduled for April 1-3 and April 8-10 in Bliss Hall’s Ford Theater. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30pm while the Sunday matinee performances are at 2:00pm. All seats are general admission.
