This holiday farce based on O'Henry's "Gift of the Magi" is set in a 1940s radio station as a live on-air broadcast. Disgruntled actors, an inebriated Shakespearean prima donna, and a frantic stage manager make this classic tale of holiday love and generosity a zany adventure that's sure to please audiences of all ages.


Character Breakdown / Project Needs
Della/Lauren - female 20-30s, young, lovely and innocent ingenue (or not)

Mrs. Marcetti/Madame Sofronie- female 40+, (boisterous Italian hairdresser and flirt. Italian accent helpful)

Denise/Mrs. Mandelbread - female 40+ (Della’s trusted Yiddish confidante)

Stage manager - frantic, jaded and constantly overwhelmed (any age, gender, ethnicity)

Freddy/Jim - Male 20-30s, Hard working, honest, love interest of Della

Mr. Marcetti/Mr. Mandelbread - male 40+ (quite a character. He’s a mix of old world Italy and Catskills)

Rex/Announcer - Male (40+) professional broadcaster with a heap of charm, polish and suavity. (As long as he’s on-air and not actually trying to relate to other people).

Most actors will play additional small roles. This is a real ensemble show.
