Spotlight Theatre of the Elk Grove Park District will present Puffs in the Fall of 2024!

Spotlight Theatre proudly presents: Puffs. Puffs is the story of Wayne Hopkins: a regular boy who finds out he’s a wizard and goes to school in England where he makes two best friends and has adventures. This perhaps sounds familiar. But, Wayne is sorted as a Puff, he and the other Puffs simply want to learn how to be wizards and avoid attacks by evil wizards. Sign up now to perform in our first ever Spotlight Dinner Theatre.
Auditions are open to Adults ages 18 and up.
