This year we bring you two beloved stories of the season. In O. Henry’s classic tale, “The Gift of the Magi,” newlyweds sacrifice their most prized possessions to buy each other Christmas gifts. Oscar Wilde tells the story of a swallow, left behind after his flock flew away, and the statue of the late “Happy Prince,” who had never experienced true sorrow.
Auditions will be held on October 29 and 30 at Deering Memorial Community Center, from 6-8 p.m.
Della and Jim are newlyweds. They are young, in love, and very poor. How can you buy the "perfect" Christmas gift when you have no money? What would you sacrifice for the one you love?
The Prince is not happy. In life, he was spoiled, thoughtless, and self-centered. In death, he is a statue, his only friend a sparrow without a flock. From his high pedestal, he helplessly sees the suffering of his people. What can he do? How can he save his people with only the help of a sparrow?
The chorus will sing appropriate songs before, between, and after the two stories.
