Photos from Sulphur Springs High School Theatre’s fall production of ‘Puffs’ by Mandy Fiock Photography! The full gallery is at the bottom of this post.
Puffs is the story of Wayne Hopkins, a regular boy who finds out he’s a wizard, and goes to school in England where he makes two best friends and has adventures. The trio (played by senior Rorie Young and juniors AllieGrace Woodard and Caleb Talmage) perhaps sounds familiar. But, Wayne and his friends are not the Brave students whose story we are used to following: they are sorted as Puffs–a group of awkward, well meaning, loyal, rejects–who just want to learn magic and avoid attacks by a certain evil wizard (junior Lucy Braddy). With almost all the actors (Seniors Gregg English and Caitlynn Monaghen along with Emilie Gotcher, Rylee Penny, Danielle Verlander, Aiden Woodard, Khira Young, Talley Brown, Addison Bradley, Caroline Prickette, Brandon Williams, Emery Brown, and Anayeli De La Cruz) playing several characters each, this Off-Broadway hit created by playwright/actor Matt Cox and The Peoples Improv Theatre of NY provides a hilarious good time for both those who are huge fans of the “original” franchise and those who come in with less love for the Potter-world.
Crew members Markida Hood, Camila Hidalgo, Esmerelda Santacruz, Cadyn Spigner, Katherine Hurley, and Cadrian Davis were led by Stage Manager, junior Anayeli De La Cruz and Technical Stage Manager junior Brandon Williams.
