It's Christmas in New York in 1905. Imagine the excitement of a busy street, bustling with shoppers and carolers singing joys of the season. Della, a stunning young woman, strolls along, looking in store windows, a bit saddened that she only has $1.87 to spend on a gift for her husband, Jim. Down the street, Jim does likewise; wistfully knowing that the items in the stores that he would love to buy for Della are beyond his means. Yes, you have entered a beautiful musical adaptation of O. Henry's, The Gift of the Magi, which will thrill and inspire your audiences year after year.
This adaptation is perfectly written for the stage with sub-plots, drama and intrigue that enhance the core storyline and reinforce the true meaning of Christmas. Questions of impropriety seize the lives of Della and Jim, who remain faithful to each other and persevere through the toughest of times. Friends, co-workers, bosses and policemen are artfully woven into the story and play an important part in setting the stage and resolving the crisis. The masterful score blends beautifully with the story and adds the majesty and magic, which ultimately reveals the true heart of this Christmas Love Story.
This is an easy-to-produce musical with a set that can be as Spartan or extravagant as you desire, while offering a highly flexible cast with opportunities for doubling and choral extras.
What they have to say:

"Family-friendly, tuneful and funny; it is a welcome addition to the seasonal theatrical repertoire." – Gary Ginell, VC Onstage
"The show's closing, ‘The Greatest Gift of All', could become a Holiday Classic." – Steven Stanley, Stage Scene LA
"Beverly Bremers' score and Faith Grant's special plot twists make the musical special. It's family friendly and the music tickles your ears." – Barry Pearl, Director
