Call for Auditions

Puffs

or
Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic

Announcing Auditions for ECT's next Main Stage Production

 

In this hilarious parody of a familiar story, three potential heroes are 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. Their epic quest takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be.

 

This uproariously funny production has casting opportunities for performers ages 14+
Proof of age may be requested

 

Auditions will be held at Watson Academy 
17 Academy Street, Epping, NH

Tuesday January 2nd 2024 starting at 7:00pm

Thursday January 4th 2024 starting at 7:00pm
