Academy Center of the Arts


The Academy Center of the Arts’ Community Through Theatre is excited to produce the O.Henry classic, The Gifts of the Magi, showing in the Warehouse Theatre November 30 – December 3.

Pulled directly from the stories of O. Henry, the Gifts of the Magi is set in New York City around the turn of the 20th century.  Christmas is approaching, but for one young couple (Jim and Della) the prospects for celebration are bleak, as both are out of work and penniless.  The thread of their story is woven by newsboy-narrator Willy, who guides us along our journey with Jim and Della while introducing us to various city folk going about their holiday business, as well as the amusing plight of a cheerful bum named Soapy who longs to be arrested.  A simple story about the consequences and significance of the act of giving, The Gifts of the Magi creates an aura of warmth in the cold, impersonal winter city.
