Missoula Community Theater will hold auditions for PUFFS, a non-musical play

The Missoula Community Theater announces an open AUDITION on Sunday, November 20 for its non-musical comedy Puffs, or seven increasingly hectic years at a certain school of magic and magic (yes, that’s really the title).

This will take place from 1-4 p.m. at the MCT Center for the Performing Arts with encores beginning at 4 p.m. There are roles for up to 15 people of all genders, ages 18 and up. There will be understudy roles as well as people playing multiple roles.

MCT’s guest director for this show is Jasmine Sherman. She is co-owner of MissCast Productions, recently directing I Know the Night and The Dead Man’s Cell Phone. Sherman looks for particular skills, including a British accent, experience with improvisation, comedic timing, and impersonation.

About the show: Inspired by a world famous book series from the UK, Puffs, or Seven increasingly turbulent years at a certain school of magic and magic, with a different perspective on the wizarding world than you know. The Puffs are a group of students who are NOT focused on fighting evil, but on surviving magic school. The script is based on improv comedy, so each performance will be slightly different and unpredictable. Actors are allowed to reference cultural and political situations, adult humor, teen bullying, explicit language, and sexual situations. The show is rated PG-13.

Performances of Puffs will take place January 19-23 and January 26-29, 2023 at the MCT Center for the Performing Arts.

Please use the main street entrance and proceed to the 3rd floor to complete the audition form. Puffs is open to anyone aged 18 and over and no prior preparation is required. Those who audition are encouraged to prepare a one-minute monologue for an initial audition, but this is not required, as there will be cold script readings for everyone at the audition.

There are no readings available on MCT, but there is information online about this non-musical comedy. To learn more about auditioning for a Missoula Community Theater production, visit https://mctinc.org/audition/.
