The Gifts of the Magi
By Book by Mark St. Germain, music by Randy Courts, lyrics by Mark St. Germain and Randy Courts. Based on the stories by O.Henry
Directed by Greg Parmeter
The Gifts of the Magi is based on the stories by O. Henry. It is Christmas in New York, 1910, and for a young married couple the holidays seem bleak. Out of work and with no money for gifts, Jim and Della show their love for one another by giving up their most prized possessions. Featuring a bright and joyful musical score, this tale of love and sacrifice is a perfect parable for the season. The book is by Mark St. Germain, music by Randy Courts, and lyrics by Mark St. Germain and Randy Courts.
