ROB MILLS SET TO JOIN AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE OF
OFF-BROADWAY SMASH HIT PUFFS
Today the producers of the Australian Premiere of the Off-Broadway smash PUFFS have announced that ROB MILLS will join the cast of this original comedy hit to play the coveted role of Cedric.
ROB MILLS says, “I am super excited to be a part of this hilarious Off-Broadway hit. It’s great to be performing back in Melbourne and I think it is going to whet the whistle for all the wizard fans out there. Comedy is something I have been wanting to get into for years and I’m excited to be making my comedic debut in PUFFS!”
PUFFS or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic & Magic is the sell-out sensation that has been playing in New York since December 2015. This hit Off-Broadway play has been called “a fast paced romp” by The New York Times and a “Potter comedy of epic proportions” by Time Out New York. It will have its Australian premiere at the Alex Theatre, St Kilda on 31 May, 2018 with previews commencing 26 May, 2018. Tickets are now on sale at Ticketek.
“PUFFS Is the Harry Potter comedy play that proves Hufflepuffs matter too!” – Nerdist
For seven years a certain boy wizard went to Wizard School. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of The Puffs who just happened to be there too. PUFFS is a Potter-inspired comedy for anyone who has ever felt like a secondary character in someone else’s story.
The full PUFFS cast features Keith Brockett, Zenya Carmellotti, Olivia Charalambous, Daniel Cosgrove, Kiana Daniele, Ryan Hawke, Gareth Isaac, Rob Mills, Eva Seymour, David Todman, Annabelle Tudor, Tammy Weller and Matthew Whitty.
PUFFS gives you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three new heroes just trying to make it through magic school. It takes a second look at everyone’s favourite world of wizards through the eyes of The Puffs, a lovable group of magical misfits.
PUFFS is written by Matt Cox and directed by Kristin McCarthy Parker. It features production and costume design by Madeleine Bundy, original lighting design by Herrick Goldman, sound design by Matt Cox and original music by Brian Hoes.
The original New York production has been updated for this Australian premiere by Matt Cox and Kristin McCarthy Parker, both of whom are traveling ‘down under’ to bring this piece to life for local audiences with this whole new company of actors.
PUFFS is produced by TEG [LIVE] in association with Tilted Windmills Theatricals, John Arthur Pinckard & David Carpenter.
