MERI/CHRIS: A Modern Magi Musical

Also available: 5 GOLDEN RINGS: A Greeting Card Channel Holiday Musical

Loving spouses Meredith and Christopher each give up huge career opportunities in order to support the other’s goals, unbeknownst to each other. Once the consequences of these seemingly selfless acts (the threat of eviction, dead-end jobs) appear, it leads to anger and blame… until Meri and Chris remember to once again put love at the center of their marriage. Doing this leads them to a happiness beyond their wildest dreams.

Chris DiMagio
Male
A fun-loving history professor who was born to teach. His bubbly personality wins the hearts of his students year after year, but he still longs for affirmation from his university, which still has not granted him tenure. He is an expert in American History, but his real passion is his wife, Meri and their new baby son Joshua.

Meri DiMagio
Female
A scrappy, talented song-writer who has big dreams. Playing in bars is starting to wear on her, but she maintains a positive outlook. Life is pretty great with her wonderful husband Chris and their baby son Joshua, who inspired Meri’s latest crop of songs – the best she’s written so far.

Joshua DiMagio
Female/Male - Optional
A very happy baby. Conveniently sleeps when the plot dictates and conveniently wakes up and cries when the plot dictates. He exists so his parents couldn’t do the long-distance thing in order to pursue each of their careers. Can be a prop.
