In The Christmas Checklist, your children will all be making a checklist. Mary and Joseph use sticky notes to keep track of what to pack for their trip to Bethlehem.  Some of your kids will dress up as angels and will double-check their list for the things they need for an upcoming concert.  Some of your children will play the part of the shepherds and will use a clipboard to lead a hillside roll call of their sheep.  And the wisemen will collect star-gazing equipment that will lead them all to the newborn savior.

NOTE:  This script is exactly the same script that is included in the musical "Checkin' It Twice".  "Checkin' It Twice" was written for customers who requested that Cathy adapt and re-write the musical "The Christmas Checklist".  They wanted to include Cathy's original contemporary Christmas songs to go along with this adorable script.

NOTE SING-A-LONG OPTION . . . the congregation will know all of the traditional Christmas carols in this musical, so why not invite them to sing along!


Purchase of the Christmas musical program grants you permission to make as many copies of the sheet music and script as needed for your performance plus permission to make and distribute copies of the vocal CD (a recording of Cathy singing the full version of each song) and lyric sheet to your children (a great way for your children's choir to learn the music quickly!).

You have your choice
of a full-length 35-minute program ($45 plus shipping, performance time: 35 minutes) or a short 20-minute program ($35 plus shipping, similar script but fewer/shorter songs - performance time: 20 minutes).

A keyboard CD (no vocals) is also available for $20 plus shipping, for those times when your piano player isn't available or when you need to free up your hands to teach actions or sign language to your children's choir. This CD may also be used for your performance - it's like hiring a piano player who plays the music the same way every time!

To preview this children's Christmas musical program, the full script and the vocal CD (a recording of Cathy singing the full version of each song) are available for $8 plus shipping.   The preview package does not include permission to perform the script or any of the songs in the musical. 

If you would like to use the 10-12 minute script as your play and insert your own children's Christmas songs, the purchase price of the performance rights for the script is $18.  This script includes Christmas text from Luke 2 with 18+ speaking parts and 10+ non-speaking parts (and the option to expand the parts to include more children or combine the parts for fewer children), prop list, and staging.  The script can be sent via e-mail to save shipping charges.

If you already have a script and you prefer to purchase individual songs from Cathy's children's Christmas musicals, you have the following options:
      1.   Purchase sheet music.  Sheet music ($4 per song) includes piano score, guitar chords and motions.  Sheet music can be e-mailed (PDF format) OR printed and mailed.
      2.   Purchase an MP3 to go along with your sheet music.  MP3s ($3 per song) include two tracks for each song:  a vocal track of Cathy singing the song and a keyboard-only track with no vocals.  MP3's are e-mailed.
      3.   Purchase a Custom CD to go along with your sheet music. 
There is a $10 labor charge for each custom CD plus the cost of each song that you purchase.  Custom CDs include both a vocal track of Cathy singing the song and a keyboard-only track with no vocals.  (Example:  Custom CD with 2 songs = $10 labor charge + $3 for Song #1 + $3 for Song #2.  CUSTOM CD with 2 SONGS TOTAL =  $16.)  Custom CDs are shipped via priority mail.
