'Gift of the Magi'

PORTSMOUTH — Based on the beloved, classic short story by O. Henry, The Gift of the Magi: the Musical rings in a magical holiday season at The Players’ Ring in Portsmouth.

The Gift of the Magi: the Musical is an enduring story of love and sacrifice in the midst of the Christmas season in 1918 New York City. The world is at war. Times are difficult for many Americans. In this closely-knit community, everyone works hard to get what little they have. For Jim and Della, it’s their first Christmas together as a married couple. What each wishes for most of all is to give “the perfect gift” to his/her beloved. Through their struggles to obtain these elusive gifts, Jim and Della let Christmas remind them what truly is most important.

Gift of the Magi: the Musical is a production of Awareness UNlimited, a NH non-profit organization (www.awarenessunlimited.org). The mission of Awareness UNlimited is to facilitate awareness and diversity programming with schools, businesses, civic groups/organizations, and communities, fostering understanding and respect, opening minds and opening worlds.

The show is appropriate for all ages. The Players’ Ring is located at 105 Marcy Street in Portsmouth. For more information, call 603-436-8123, or visit www.playersring.org.
