    The University of Florida (UF) School of Theatre + Dance is pleased to present Puffs; or, Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic, a new play currently in development by a team of award-winning artists and producers. Puffs tells the story of an “ordinary” young man, Wayne Hopkins, who finds out he’s a wizard and travels to a certain school of magic, where he is placed in the “Puffs,” a group of loyal and good intentioned misfits. Over the course of his seven years at the school, he gets thrown into situations both dangerous and ridiculous.  Between trying to learn magic, not trying to get lost or hurt in the labyrinths of the school, and trying to avoid his four-eyed nemesis, Wayne and the rest of the characters in this play take us on a magical journey unlike any we’ve ever experienced. Join us for the unique experience of viewing this magical play in development before it makes its Off-Broadway debut in New York City this fall.

    In addition, the School of Theatre + Dance will host a number of master classes and workshops with the Puffs development team. Check out the schedule of master classes and workshops!
