THE GIFTS OF THE MAGI

Written by Mark St. Germain. Music by Randy Courts.
Directed by Heidi Cline McKerley

Back for a third season by popular demand!

This musical about a penniless husband and wife in 19th-century New York is based on two of O. Henry’s timeless stories and reminds us of the love, charity and humanity that underpin every holiday season.

 

Directed by Heidi Cline McKerley

Choreography by Jeff McKerley

Musical Direction by S. Renee Clark

 

Note: Not part of the subscription season.

 

It is Christmas, the season of giving, but for young penniless lovers Jim and Della the prospects are bleak. Each valiantly struggles to find the perfect gift for the other. 

Meanwhile, forgotten man Soapy comically attempts to get thrown in jail for a free meal and place to sleep. 

City Him and City Her provide the hustle and bustle of cold 19th Century New York.  

News Vendor Willy warmly guides the way with wise council and soaring melodies. 

A charming and transcendent musical that asks Is the wisdom in the gift or in the giving?

Bernardine Mitchell singing "Pockets" from THE GIFTS OF THE MAGI. "It is Mitchell that truly holds the show together with her phenomenal performance. Her soaring vocals and warm, mysterious demeanor give the show a charming quality that would otherwise not exist if the role was cast traditionally as a newsboy." - Kenny Norton, Atlanta Theater Fans
