‘Magi’ coming to Raleigh

December 1, 2018 by  

Sonorous Road Theatre & Film Studio will offer their original adaptation of ‘The Gift of the Magi’, a classic O. Henry short story, in Raleigh for the holidays. This is the second year the studio will present the production.

The story tells of Jim and Della Young, a pair of newlyweds who search for the perfect Christmas gifts to give one another. They are poor, and end up sacrificing the most valuable things they own to find a gift for their loved one.

The story was first published in 1905, and has been adapted for television and film a number of times. Sonorous Road’s version is an immersive production that is set in New York in the 1920s. The show will have live music, as well as interactive elements.

Sonorous Road’s artistic director and owner, Michelle Murray Wells, says the story is a beautiful, moving tale about sacrifice, and what matters to people. Wells wrote the show, with the help of others at the company. Organizations like this, which are presenting productions, can use poster printing to help advertise the event.

Sonorous Road is an independent theater owned only by women, and provides a venue for everyone from amateurs to professional actors a place to unleash their creativity.

‘The Gift of the Magi’ will run from December 6 to the 17th at Sonorous Road Theatre & Film Studio, 3801 Hillsborough Street, Suite 113, in Raleigh.
