This weekend, PiM Arts High School Theatre is taking audiences on an “almost familiar” magical journey as it presents Matt Cox’s parody play, “Puffs, or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic.”
Shows are at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16, through Saturday, Nov. 18, at The Loading Dock Theatre at PiM Arts High School in Eden Prairie. Tickets are $5 for students and $12 for adults and can be purchased at this link.
The synopsis: “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.”
Rob Thompson, PiM’s director of communications, said the Loading Dock Theatre has been transformed in to a common room for the cast of young magical students as they journey on their seven years of schooling and the amazing incidents that occur at their school.
“This show is crazy funny, and pokes fun at a story many of our students grew up watching,” said William Leaf, the show’s director. “The madness and hilarity come from the slight twist of hearing this story from a completely different perspective. I have no doubt everyone will enjoy it.”
