PSA: American Players Theatre Announces The Gift Of The Magi For A New Holiday Presentation!!

Today the American Players Theatre is announcing a new holiday presentation of The Gift Of The Magi written by core company member, Jim DeVita (who gave us that amazing An Improbable Fiction earlier this season). See the details below and use the links provided to find out more!!

The Gift of the Magi

In the Touchstone Theatre

November 26 – December 19, 2021

James DeVita and Josh Schmidt’s original musical based on O. Henry’s classic tale of love and generosity returns to the Touchstone at long last. It’s been hailed as “a Christmas Delight” (The Isthmus). We’ve also been told that “It’s difficult to imagine a more idyllic holiday escape.” (The Shepherd Express). But don’t take our word for it (or even theirs). This is a play that longs to be seen. To be reveled in and shared with friends and family. So help us celebrate the end of this remarkable season along with Jim and Della, who, with full hearts and empty pockets, seek the perfect gift for one another only to find they already have all they need.


Featuring Kelsey Brennan, Brian Mani and Marcus Truschinski.

This has been an extraordinary season, in part because it was able to take place at all. Now, as we ponder the gifts we’ve been given this year, it feels like the perfect time to bring this holiday favorite back for a visit – a reminder of all the beauty and love and generosity that the world yet holds, and all that is still to come.

Tickets on sale Tuesday, October 26 9:00 am CT online at americanplayers.org and 10:00 am by phone at 608-588-2361

We hope you’ll join us one last time in the woods this season as we celebrate the simple things – they are, invariably, the ones we hold dearest.
