“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.” —ATL Insider


Written by Mark St. Germain; Music by Randy Courts

Directed by Heidi Cline McKerley; Music Direction by S. Renee Clark

Jim and Della are out of work and penniless during Christmas in New York. To afford presents for each other, both secretly part with their most precious possessions. In O. Henry’s classic holiday story, the two lovers’ gesture of giving creates a warm and intimate Christmas in the cold, unfriendly city. Set to the music of Randy Courts, this charming and transcendent musical will kindle the holiday spirit in the heart of Atlanta.
