Hold on to Your Hat - It's Christmas! 
The angels are in charge of delivering boxes of hats to everyone in the Christmas story and the hats have arrived just in time!  Each hat box includes a note:  "Hold on to your hat, and remember that God is always with you."

Your children who play the parts of Mary and Joseph receive their hats in a barn in Bethlehem and are reminded that God will be with them as a new family.  Your children who play the parts of the shepherds receive practical hats for their work in the fields and are reminded that God is always with them - which is quite a promise, because the sheep really keep them moving!  Your children who play the parts of the wisemen know that God has been with them in their search to find the savior and they trust that God will continue to be with them as they finish their journey.  Everyone will be surprised by what the wisemen do with their hats! 

This Christmas musical invites your children to hold on to their hats as they celebrate Jesus - God's promise to always be with us . . . Emmanuel.

Angels in the Christmas program.
Purchase of this 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 kids (a great way for your children to learn the music quickly!). A sheep in the Christmas musical.

You have your choice of a full-length 40-minute program ($45 plus shipping, performance time: 40 minutes) or a short 20-minute program ($35 plus shipping, shorter script which does not include the wisemen and fewer songs - performance time: 20 minutes  NOTE:  The wisemen are not included in the 20-minute program.).

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 motions 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 the Luke 2 text and reader & narrator parts and 12+ non-speaking costumed characters (they get to act but they don't have to memorize any lines), prop list, and staging.  The script can be sent via e-mail to save shipping charges.
