Take a magical journey with Frederick Community College Theater’s presentation of “Puffs, or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic.”
Showings of the play will be 8 p.m. Fridays, Nov. 4 and 11 and Saturdays, Nov. 5 and 12 in the Black Box Theater of the Visual & Performing Arts Center.
The play “Puffs” is an improv comedy that branches off a familiar wizarding school with different houses. A regular boy named Wayne Hopkins discovers that he is a wizard and is now going to a school for wizards. He makes two best friends that go on adventures with him, and the rest of the Puffs try to figure out how to be wizards and avoid attacks from other evil wizards.
On the showing on Nov. 5, the artful evening event was also active. Art was created by the FCC facility at FCC and other alumni, as well as a music recital featuring Paula Chipman.
Currently, some of the art from this event is residing in The Mary Condon Hodgson Art Gallery. Wendell Poindexter, an art professor, and the program manager is participating in this event by submitting 5 of his art pieces for the faculty exhibition.
“I am very pleased with my work and can’t wait to see them all together as a series,” he said.
He discusses how he loves to show his work as it is a good motivation for himself and a good way to show an example to his students.
FCC Theatre Program Manger Tad Janes organized the production “Puffs” by Matt Cox.
“Each rehearsal I look forward to the aha moment when everything clicks,” Tad says, “doing theater is about making discoveries,” Janes said.
In his production, Janes said he looks forward to the audience’s reaction to this splendid and hilarious play.
“It’s a comedy, and I want people to just have fun with it,” he said.
Janes said this production is very humorous and family-friendly. All Harry Potter fans will highly appreciate this piece as there are a ton of inside messages and jokes in it.
As Janes said, “ it’s going to be lots of fun and everyone should come.”
Tickets to this production are sold at the door for $8 for students and $12 for seniors and adults, but FCC employees and students could get a free voucher ahead of time from the Center for Student Leadership and Engagement (H101). Contact Tad Janes at email@example.com for more in
