The Gifts of the Magi

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

A Charming and Captivating Christmas Musical

Based on the Classic Heart-Warming Stories of O. Henry

 
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?

 

The Gifts of the Magi is the perfect show to take the family to on a chilly afternoon when you are feeling festive.  - Busking at the Seams

 

 "Magi’s' simple charms a holiday winner... Smoothly directed and handsomely designed." - Bert Osborne, AJC

 

"Theatrical Outfit serves up a holiday treat with The Gifts of the Magi. ...On the night I went, I heard little kids happily giggling in all the right places." - Andrew Alexander, ArtsATL

 

"Perfectly cast and performed." - Manning Harris, Atlanta INTown

 

"Theatrical Outfit is giving a gift to Atlanta this holiday season: a musical adaptation of O. Henry’s classic, 'The Gifts of the Magi.' It is an outstanding present for which Atlanta should be grateful." - Jan Jaben-Eilon, ATL Insider
