11 roles

WAYNE HOPKINSMale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

The hero. Totally uncool, but full of charm and heart. Loyal to a tee. Likes comic books and video games, knows nothing about magic or this weird magic world he is now a part of. Best friends with Oliver and Megan.

OLIVER RIVERSMale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

One of the main trio. Incredibly smart and cerebral, he is a math wiz, and proud of it; lovingly a nerd from New Jersey. After ending up at wizarding school, he finds out he isn’t the top of his class, and instead begins a fantastical journey of friendship and even some love, better than any algebra class could ever promise. Real comic chops, incredibly appealing, youthful.

MEGAN JONESFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

One of the main trio; begins the show by only desiring to live up to her mother’s reputation: a dark wizard currently in Wiz Priz for being such a bad-ass Death Buddy in her youth. Favorite store: Hot Topic. Favorite color: black. Over time, her tough veneer begins to soften, as a budding romance with Oliver becomes apparent.

NARRATORBoth genders18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

The narrator of the story. She/he guides us through our entire show of Puffy-ness. British accent. Must be a great storyteller, as she/he must keep the audience engaged and updated on all the goings-on. Can be a bit of a know-it-all, but still relatable and appealing. Comedy skills are a must, improv background is a plus.

ERNIE MACMale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

And A VERY TALL MAN / SEAMUS / A CERTAIN POTIONS TEACHER / PROFESSOR TURBAN / GHOST HISTORY TEACH / PROFESSOR LOCKY / MR. NICK / SAL / SECOND HEADMASTER / REAL MR. MOODY: Requires an actor capable of doing strong impressions. Ernie Mac: Proud. Loud. Pretty sure he’s the best. Male Teachers: Potions Teacher/ Locky/ Professor Turban/ Mr. Moody. All impressions. Strong comedic ability

HANNAHFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

And FIRST HEADMASTER / PROFESSOR McG / PROFESSOR SPROUTTY / XAVIA JONES / PROFESSOR LANNY / RUNES TEACH / MS. BABBLE: Requires playing several different roles back to back, so the ability to play a variety of character types is a plus. Hannah: Shy. Very shy. Female Teachers: Professor McG, Professor Plants, Professor T, Bath Babbles. Adults of all kinds of different personalities.

J. FINCH FLETCHLEYFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

And UNCLE DAVE / GOYLE / A FAT FRIAR / CLUMSY LONGBOTTOM / HERMIONE #3 / VIKTOR / MR. BAGMAN / ZACH SMITH: Improvisational skills a plus. Boyish & fun. Chipper and happy except, when his life is in mortal danger.

LEANNEFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

And GINNY / HELGA / FRENCH: A little distant. A little random. Is possibly a genius or really, really stupid. But has a really strong heart. The Puffiest of the Puffs.

SALLY PERKSFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

And HERMEOONE / BLONDO MALFOY / ROWENA / RITA SCOOTER / BIPPY: Sally: Nice. In year 3, goes through a bit of a growth spurt that attracts the other student’s attention, if you know what I mean. Bippy: A house elf. Devoted. Loyal. Kind of annoying.

SUSIE BONESFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

And HARRY / COLIN / HERMIONE #2 / RIC GRYFF / MYRTLE: Susie: Sad. Gloomy. Think Eeyore from “Winnie the Pooh.” Constantly in fear of her or her family dying. Harry: Young, plucky, and famous. Struts around school like he owns it. Gets into a few wacky situations, but it’s nothing the bonds of friendship can’t overcome.

CEDRICMale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

And MR. VOLDY: An appealing comic actor to play the pivotal roles of Cedric in Act I and Mr. Voldy in Act II. Cedric: A champion. Athletic, winning, popular, and charming. Everyone’s favorite, but still loyal, patient, and kind. A leading example of a Puff. Mr. Voldy: Evil. Like, really evil. Wants to rule the world in shadows and darkness and terror.
