Audition – PUFFS

Los Altos Youth Theater is holding open auditions for ages 9-18 for Puffs, or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic by Matt Cox.

Directed by Katelyn Miller

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. Join the gang, also including the Braves, the Smarts, and the Snakes, as they have adventures, learn the value of friendship, and hope that someday, they might come in third in the House Cup.
