Almost everyone knows the story of the wizard boy who grew up and triumphed over evil. But, behind every great wizard; there is a Puff aka a Hufflepuff.
PUFFS is the story of three unlikely heroes trying to get their big break. Sure they may not be as good-looking, or as brave, or witty, clever or...., you get the idea, but they have dreams, and by golly they are unique.
The UK's incredible Samsam Bubbleman, dubbed "The Willy Wonka of bubbles" is bringing his amazing Big Bubble Show to Melbourne's Athenaeum Theatre these school holidays.
With Hogwarts not exactly a stroll through the park and a certain boy-wizard attending the same classes, the odds are against them, but hey, they are Puffs and Puffs hang in there.
The PUFFS theatre performance at The Alex Theatre in St Kilda was a blast. The show has done extremely well overseas, and this performance lived up to all my expectations. I laughed till my sides hurt with the clever references, puns, jokes, unique story and superb performances. The sets are detailed, oozing theme and a sense of magic, and even a die-hard fan would be impressed.

PUFFS runs for around ninety minutes with an intermission. Tickets range in price depending on where you sit from $52 - $82. Shows run most days, with the afternoon weekend matinee performances catering for families and eveing shows for those over 15yrs.
We attended the matinee show with our eight-year-old daughter and thirteen-year-old son, and they both loved it.
