‘The Gift of the Magi’ To Be Played In Falls Church By Providence Players

The live play “The Gift of the Magi” is based upon the O. Henry classic short story about a young married couple desperately in love with each other and very poor. Beth Whitehead, director, “The Gift of the Magi,” said, “Providence Players at the holiday season wants to give its audience a unique experience. We want to bring the humor, joy, holiday themes, family-friendly shows and entertain them. We found a lovely rendition that we know will give our audiences joy and entertain.”

According to www.connectionnewspapers.com, “The play remains the warm tale of the young couple’s efforts to show how much they love one another, including their desire to buy each other proper gifts for the Holidays. Finding the perfect gifts for one another involves some unexpected costs. The Providence Players’ production of “The Gift of the Magi” takes in New York City at the turn of the 1900s. The production also includes holiday singing from a wonderful ensemble of actors,” noted Whitehead.”
