About this show

Drawn from two short stories by O. Henry, this American "Christmas Carol," combines the stories of "The Gift of the Magi" and "The Cop and the Anthem" with a compelling and original musical score. This heart-warming musical charmer transports the audience to Christmas in New York City, 1905, where they not only meet the famed penniless lovers (Chelsea Morgan and Jason Richards) but also a metropolis of people going about their holiday business including "Soapy Smith," (Kevin McKillip) a cheerful bum hoping to be arrested so he can spend Christmas in a warm jail cell. The Gifts of the Magi is an evening perfect for the whole family celebrating the true meaning of the season.
