    Good morning, everyone!

    Puffs creator Matt Cox and Uproar Theatrics are seeking a Thespian troupe planning on attending ITF with the moxie and comedic chops to premiere a slightly-staged reading of the high school edition of Matt's newest play, Witches!? In Salem?! The scripts-in-hand event will take place in Whittenberger Auditorium from 7:30 - 9:00pm on Sunday, June 23rd, with a workshop taking place earlier in the day.

    The selected troupe will have the opportunity to workshop their performance with Matt, and he will be reading stage directions for the performance!

    Matt has hand picked a four-page side for troupes to submit a recording of (cast of 6-30+). Submissions are due on May 20.

    About Witches!? In Salem?!:
    Matt Cox, creator of Puffs, has written a new play which also happens to involve witches. Witches!? In Salem?! is a darkly comedic, yet (mostly) historically accurate take on the Salem Witch Trials and all the (mostly) historically accurate horrors which may occur when populism runs rampant, injustice is a day to day occurrence, and a rigid religious minority sets the laws of the land. You know, old timey problems. A companion, or an alternative, to a certain other Salem play you probably read in high school. 

    In the spirit of edu-tainment, Jenny Anne Bishop, an eighth grader who got "way too into her class lesson plan on The Crucible" guides us through all the fun facts from the years leading up to, during, and after the Trials. Meet culprits, victims, and bystanders alike as a village in turmoil comes to life.
