Presented by The Very Popular Theatre Co

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.

In true Very Popular spirit, this clever and inventive play never goes more than a minute without a laugh, 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 which proves to be very dangerous for children.

Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders who are so lovable and relatable, you’ll leave the theater wishing they were in the stories all along.

Making its Newcastle debut under the expert direction of Daniel Stoddart, this hilarious and heartfelt journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be.
