The Central High School Maskers Drama Club presents PUFFS, Or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years At A Certain School of Magic and Magic by Matt Cox February 11-13th live at the McAllester auditorium located at Manchester's Central High School.

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!”

This clever and inventive play “never goes more than a minute without a laugh” (Nerdist) giving you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three potential heroes just trying to make it through a magic school that proves to be very dangerous for children.

Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders with a thing for badgers “who are so lovable and relatable, you’ll leave the theater wishing they were in the stories all along” (Hollywood Life).

Their “hilariously heartfelt!” (Metro) and epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be.

The Maskers Drama Club is Central High School’s oldest student-based organization, performing for the first time in 1924. Maskers present two full productions each year, one play and one musical, as well as hosting workshops and student showcases.

This marks the return to the stage for the Maskers after a hiatus of over two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Puffs (Two Act for Young Wizards)” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
