In this play-with-music adaptation of O. Henry's short story, The Gift of the Magi, Della Dillingham and her husband Jim seek to purchase the perfect gifts for each other, but living paycheck-to-paycheck seeking each of their artistic endeavors has left little extra cash for Christmas presents. Jim and Della's love reaches far beyond monetary constraints in this story of love and sacrifice.

Jim Dillingham (early- to mid-twenties, any ethnicity) - Aspiring wildlife photographer, husband of Della Dillingham
