Boys and Girls Club, 500 NW Wall St, Bend, OR 97701) 0
Encore’s winter production of 2017, “The Gift of the Magi“, adapted by Jon Jory and directed by Allyson Swales.
Jim and Della eat potatoes for dinner every night and stuff their boots with newspaper to get by, but everything they want is for each other. They’re so head-over-heels in love they can make a cozy home in turn-of-the-century New York with little more than the coins in their jam jar. But what’s to be done about Christmas? When a strange twist of fate leads the young couple to find the perfect gifts for one another at an unexpected cost, Jim and Della learn the true meaning of the holiday. Classic Christmas carols punctuate this sweet and joyful retelling of the O. Henry story.
Performances: Saturday and Sunday, December 16 and 17th, at 3:00pm and 7:00pm at the Boys & Girls Club Downtown (500 NW Wall St, Bend, OR 97701)
