Cast: 8m., 7w. (extras.) Music adds enchantment to O. Henry's Christmas classic, making it a new Christmas experience for audiences. There is still the attractive young couple coming to their first Christmas together. While neither can afford a gift, each gives that which is prized most so that the other may receive something special. All of this is done in song. Audiences will find magic within the play just as the couple find the real magic of Christmas within their funny-sad gifts. One int. set. Approximate running time: 60 minutes.
