The Winter Season continues ‘The Gifts of The Magi’  directed by Eric Ewan. The only musical this winter season, this show is the perfect holiday event for families of all ages. Performances are December 1-3, 7-10, 2017. The Gifts of the Magi is a musical based on a famous Christmas story by O. Henry, and partially based on his other work entitled The Cop and the Anthem. It’s the story of Jim and Della Dillingham, an out of work and penniless couple trying to survive in New York City in 1905. Essentially, this musical is about the consequences and significance of the act of giving. It is the perfect family show for the Christmas season – an intimate, beautiful, and touching holiday event.

After the new year, the winter season continues with’ Leaving Iowa,’ January 12 & 13, 18-21.
