About Puffs

“‘Hufflepuffs’ finally get their moment in hilarious Potter play, ‘PUFFS’!”—Mashable

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.

The New York Times proclaims PUFFS, “A FAST-PACED ROMP through the ‘Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic.’ For POTTERphiliacs who grew up alongside Potter and are eager to revisit that world, ‘PUFFS’ exudes a jovial, winking fondness for all things Harry!”

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.​

Season 2021: Live, Love, Laugh!

Following a year of only offering virtual experiences, the Little Red Hen is moving forward with a season of live performances that aim to bring people together with laughter. The adventure kicks off in April with the boy-wizard-themed parody “PUFFS – or seven increasingly eventful years at a certain school of magic & magic” which wizard and muggle-born theatergoers alike will enjoy.  In July, the Little Red Hen goes on a magical romp in the swamp with the popular Broadway show “SHREK the Musical.  In December, the theatre promises some stocking-stuffer action with the hilariously irreverent “A Very Die-Hard Christmas”.  The theatre will also treat audiences to the funk & soul sounds of Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal in a live music performance for their annual patron special in November.
