Text Size

Newtown High School students are well into their preparation for their upcoming fall drama production Puffs, Or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years At A Certain School Of Magic And Magic.

The play will be staged November 18 to 21 at NHS, 12 Berkshire Road. It is being directed by Janice Gabriel. The curtain will rise at 7 pm November 18, 19, and 20, and at 2 pm on November 21.

Tickets at the door are for $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $7 for students — no advance sales. Everyone in attendance will be asked to wear a mask, and seating will be by general admission with spacing for COVID-19 mitigation.

A description for the play reads, “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 cast, in alphabetical order, is: Ashton Almeter, Grayson Anderson, Theo Anderson, Sadie Baimel, Ava Baroody, Leah Crebbin, Adlien Ekman, Julia Forlenzo, Lizzy Goschlich, Sadie Gureasko-Moore, Sean Kenny, Jules Kessler, Kristin Lageman, Zoe Marsh, Jackson McDevitt, Ella Renak, Amelia Rivera, James Thorpe, and Reese Wheat.

The crew is Stage Manager Katie Murphy; Assistant Stage Managers Jonathan Da Silva and Jessica Powers; Lighting Head Lily Swansiger; Assistant Lighting Head Annika Fogal; Sound Head Abby McCafferty; Construction Head Claire Nalajala; Scenic Artist Maren Leyva; Props Head Maia Bracksieck; Ashton Almeter, Joey Augustine, Olivia Ayles, Sadie Baimel, Ella Christensen, Natalie DeSpagna, Sean Kenny, Ava Larsen, Zoe Marsh, Morgan Neff, Sam Olson, Peter Savinelli, Carissa Soriano, Eli Stan, Paige Tarpey, James Thorpe, Thea Trotta, Grace Zatulskis, and Malcolm Zimmerman.
