Puffs, or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic has transferred yet again, this time to New World Stages for an open-ended engagement. The Harry Potter–inspired comedy, which has delighted audiences and critics alike, officially opens at its new home July 17.

The play debuted last fall at New York’s Peoples Improv Theater Off-Off-Broadway before moving Off-Broadway to the Elektra, where it played through July 2.

Puffs transfers with a new set, new creatures, and the introduction of family-friendly performances.

The comedy follows the lives of the wizard classmates who, unlike Harry and his friends, weren't in the limelight. The play is written by Matt Cox, directed by Kristin McCarthy Parker, and originally produced by Stephen Stout and Colin Waitt.

The cast of Puffs is made up of Langston Belton, Madeleine Bundy, Jessie Cannizzaro, Nick Carrillo, Anna Dart, A.J. Ditty, Julie Ann Earls, James Fouhey, Jake Keefe, Andy Miller, Zac Moon, Eleanor Philips, and Stephen Stout.
