"In my children's Christmas musicals, I bring the Christian Christmas story to life with original children's Christmas songs, kid-friendly arrangements of traditional Christmas carols and plays specifically designed for children and preschoolers. I love Christmas and I also love it when children share the good news of Christmas with us big people!"

Want to do an inter-generational Christmas program? 
All of these children's Christmas musicals may be done as inter-generational Christmas programs.  Simply combine children with their parents, children with the high school kids, children with their grandparents, children with the senior choir, or children with their teachers . . . there are lots of ways to make a musical inter-generational!

You have your choice of a full-length 40-minute program ($40 plus shipping, performance time: 40 minutes) or a short 20-minute program ($30 plus shipping, similar script but fewer/shorter songs - performance time: 20 minutes). Purchase of a Christmas musical gives you permission to make as many copies of the script, music, lyric sheet, and vocal CD (a recording of Cathy singing the full version of each song) as needed for your performance.  NOTE:  Preschool musicals are only available in a 20-minute program ($30 plus shipping, 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 the 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 $7 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 $17 (the script can be sent via e-mail to save shipping charges).

If you already have a script and you prefer to purchase individual children's songs or Pre-K Christmas songs from Cathy's Christmas musicals, you have the following options: 
      1.   Purchase sheet music.
 Sheet music ($3.50 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 ($2.00 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 + $2.00 for Song #1 + $2.00 for Song #2.  CUSTOM CD with 2 SONGS TOTAL =  $14.)  Custom CDs are shipped via priority mail.

"I LOVE the music you sent!!!  YAY and YIPPEE!  My co-worker and I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at it and humming along AND the kids love it!  We get the best compliments about our programs and it is due largely to your beautiful songs!"

Sue W., Asbury United Methodist Church
 

"The Christmas program was wonderful. We are so blessed that you choose to share your musical gifts in this way - your music is not only fun to sing but the lyrics are all words that children can understand and so they will remember the message long after the program is over."

Pastor Donna D., United Methodist Church

"We have used three of your programs in the past . . . all with rousing success . . . and we're back for more!  Thank you for your quality products!  You obviously understand what kinds of music motivate children!"

 Michelle B., Trinity Lutheran Church
 

"As a teacher, choreographer and director of our grade school Christmas program for over 30 years, I have to say that your musicals are the best Christmas programs I have ever worked with and I've used them all! The enthusiasm of even our oldest students is extraordinary! I am pleased with how singable the music is and how quickly they catch on. It stays in their hearts, and ours."
David J., St. Agnes Catholic School

"I ordered nine preview packages of your various Christmas programs and all of the music I listened to was inspiring.   We picked one of your musicals for this year and I'm going to save the other preview kits . . . . perhaps we have the next eight years of programs already figured out!  Thanks for your creative efforts."

Karl F., Maple Leaf Lutheran Church
 

"I thank you again for your beautiful music.  It touched the hearts of many people during the Christmas holidays in the hill country of Texas."

Donna W., Hillcrest Assembly of God Church
