Twist of the Magi by Debra Rich Gettleman

Directed by Shileah Corey

Back by popular demand, it's a new twist on last season's crowd pleasing holiday hit "Twist of the Magi". Make it a holiday tradition to roar at this funny fractured version of O'Henry's classic tale, "Gift of the Magi". Set in a 1940's radio station as a live on-air broadcast and featuring the tuneful trilogy, "The Twisted Sisters," this farcical comedy is the perfect holiday recipe for the whole family!

Rehearsals begin October 29, and shows run November 30-December 23 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
