Seven increasingly eventful years at a certain school of magic and magic!

Written By Matt Cox
By Arrangement with ORiGin Theatrical
On Behalf of Samuel French
A Concord Theatricals Company

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 clever and inventive play gives 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. Their heartfelt and epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be.

A tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world.  

Please note that there are TWO versions of this show:

Saturday performances are recommended for Young Wizards aged 8+. Contains some adult themes, but young wizards will not learn any unforgivable curse words.
