Drag Brunch and Matinee of "Puffs" to Raise Money for Trans Youth Care

Dark Wizard Voldy Does Good (For Once)


CHICAGO, Illinois (August 2, 2023) -- Otherworld Theatre Company, the premier science fiction and fantasy production company in North America, today announced that the wildly popular PUFFS, OR, SEVEN INCREASINGLY EVENTFUL YEARS AT A CERTAIN SCHOOL OF MAGIC AND MAGIC will host a special drag brunch on Sunday, August 13, 2023 followed by a matinee performance of the show. The event, hosted by enigmatic and powerful dark wizard Voldy, raises money to support trans youth healthcare services provided by Howard Brown Health throughout the Chicago area. Tickets to VOLDY’S DRAG BINGO BRUNCH ($20-$30) and to performances of PUFFS ($30) are available at www.otherworldtheatre.org.


PUFFS, the unlicensed, unauthorized parody of the story of a certain boy wizard, recently announced a three-week reprise at Otherworld Theatre following rave reviews and sold-out performances. The show adds new performance dates August 11 - 27, 2023 at Otherworld’s iconic Lakeview theatre at 3914 N. Clark St.

VOLDY’S DRAG BINGO BRUNCH begins at 11:30 a.m. and features performances by local drag divas, prize-filled games of Bingo, and magically bottomless mimosas - a drag brunch staple. Guests have the option of attending a special 2 p.m. performance of PUFFS to make a day of it.
