Since opening in late May, audience response has continued to grow following universal praise from critics and audience alike. PUFFS has also recently broken two box office records – the title for the longest running production in the history of the Alex Theatre St Kilda, as well as the highest grossing show for the venue.

PUFFS continues its remarkable success with eight performances each week including two weekend matinees designated “family friendly” for ages 8 and above and evening performances recommended for audiences aged 15 years and above.

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.

PUFFS is a wizard inspired comedy play which gives you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three new heroes just trying to make it through magic school.

Written by Matt Cox and directed by Kristin McCarthy Parker, PUFFS features Keith Brockett, Zenya Carmellotti, Olivia Charalambous, Daniel Cosgrove, Ryan Hawke, Gareth Isaac, Lauren McKenna, Eva Seymour, David Todman, Annabelle Tudor, Tammy Weller, Matthew Whitty and Rob Mills.

“When Miriam Margolyes announced Puffs earlier in the year, she promised something spectacular and fun, which this cast and crew have delivered in abundance.” – David Collins, Australian Arts Review
