AUDITIONS: Puffs

Good Luck Macbeth is now casting for PUFFS or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic directed by Cody Hamilton. 

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.

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.

Rehearsals will begin May 16th, 2022. 

Show runs JULY 8th-30th, 2022

Wayne Hopkins:(Male)(American) Wayne is the chosen one… sort of, at least he dreams of being the chosen one. He’s not the best wizard, and is often kicked down by fate. Part of the main Puffs trio, and the mirror character to Harry.

Oliver Rivers: (Male)(American) Oliver is an eleven year old "math savant", who is now a beginner level wizard. He is part of the main Puffs Trio, and the mirror character to Ron.

Megan Jones: (Female)(American) The punk daughter of a powerful evil wizard, who struggles to gain the approval of her mother. She is part of the main Puffs trio, and the mirror character to Hermione.

Narrator:(Any)(British) The Narrator of the story, often breaking the fourth wall, at times becoming interactive with characters for moments. Later revealed to be Oliver and Megan’s child.

Ernie Mac: (Male)(British) “Who’s THAT?! It’s me, ERNIE MAC! I’m basically the best… so. Hi.” - Ernie Mac page 6 of the script. After this big statement he proceeds to do almost nothing. He perhaps has a little bit of an ego, but in a Puffs sort of way. This role also doubles as A Very Tall Man / Seamus / A Certain Potions Teacher / Professor Turban / Ghost History Teacher / Professor Locky / Mr Nick / Sal / Second Headmaster / Real Mr. Moody / Oliver in Mirror Double

Hannah: (Female)(British or Irish) Extremely Awkward. Often bullied by other houses, and realizing it fully hours afterward. No matter what situation it seems Hannah turns things awkward. This role doubles as First Headmaster / Professor McG / Professor Sproutty / Xavia Jones / Professor Lanny /  Runes Teach / Ms. Babble/ Giant Spider

J. Finch Fletchley: (Male)(British) Often refers to himself in the third person. He is boyish and fun. Around year four he starts to be referred to as imaginary due to his almost disappearance in the books around this time. This role doubles as Uncle Dave / Goyle / A Fat Friar / Clumsy Longbottom / Hermeoone #3 / Viktor / Mr.Bagman / Zach Smith. Please note the Zach Smith role has a 5 minute improvised monologue part way through Act 2.

Leanne: (Female)(British or Irish) Leanne was raised in a cabin by her grandparents, and has had very little social contact with children until she comes to a certain school of Magic and Magic. She is exuberant, fun, and a bit A.D.D. The role of Leanne also doubles as: Ginny / Helga(Pre-show/during show) / Frenchy / Anthony / Megan in Mirror Double /Snake Girl.

Susie Bones.: (Female)(British or Irish) Susie's family were murdered during the first wizarding war by death buddies, except her aunt. She is very drab, and depressive, and probably dresses in the style of someone much older than she. This role as doubles as Harry/Colin/Hermeoone #2/Ric Gryff/Myrtle. Please note this role plays Harry almost more than Susie B.

Sally Perks: (Female)(British or Irish) Sally is perceived by most as aloof, and mysterious. The only definite thing about her is she goes to this school. As time within the story unfolds, and she carelessly throws her glasses away to impress boys with her charm, and looks, we come to find out that she is somewhat of an exploratory sexual deviant. This role doubles as  Hermeoone/Blondo Malfoy/Rowena/Rita Scooter/Bippy/Dragon/a far less impressive person /  Luna(Preshow) / Scropy.

Cedric/Mr. Voldy:(Male)(British) Cedric is Good at school, a leader to his peers, polite and charming. Wayne’s mentor in the show. Gets his own music for certain entrances. You know, a cool guy. This role doubles as Mr. Voldy after year four / Wayne in Mirror Double

DEATH BUDDIES to be played by all.
