The Mukwonago Village Players & Mukwonago High School Theater Department present “The Gifts of Christmas” on December 12, 13, 19 & 20 at 7:30 pm and December 21 at 2:00 pm at the Mukwonago High School.
“The Gift of the Magi,” written by Jon Jory, tells the classic O. Henry story of a young couple who are short of money, but not love, and are determined to buy each other a Christmas gift. “Soapy Smith’s Christmas Wish,” written by Thomas Hischak, and based on O. Henry’s “The Cop and the Anthem,” finds down-on-his-luck Soapy attempting – by any means possible – to spend the holidays in the relative warmth of the local jail. Woven throughout is the touching story, “The Christmas Thing,” by Kevin Koehne, which follows a family through three generations of Christmas celebrations.
