Here's a chance to hear about the birth of Jesus from the people who were there when it happened. 
In the Simply Christmas program, you'll hear all of the children in the Christmas musical tell their part of the story in their own creative way!

Simply Christmas
 starts with the promise and the letter "P" . . .
 The prophet Isaiah proclaimed the proof of God's love.  Picture the party that goes with this promise.
  Presents!  A parade!  Pizza!  Prayer & praise!


Your kids will dress up as shepherds and tell their part of the Christmas story with a spoken chant . . .
Sh, Sh, Sh, we are the shepherds. 
Every night is just the same.  Then one night an angel came.
Sh, Sh, Sh, we are shepherds.
  There were lights and there was sound.  We got scared and hit the ground.
Sh, Sh, Sh, we are the shepherds.


The children will dress up as angels and use charades to tell their part of the story because they have lost their voices from singing songs of praise to God. 

Your kids will help your audience to hear this simple and familiar Christmas story like they've never heard it before
and your audience can sing along during the program because they will know the familiar Christmas songs!

Simply Christmas
includes:
1) Kid-friendly arrangements of 9 Christmas carols (so your audience can sing along) plus an original theme song. Songs include claps, motions, sign language, bandanas, streamer sticks and instrumental parts for xylophones, tambourines, triangles, wood blocks & jingle bells,
2) a piano score with guitar chords, 
3) a vocal CD (a recording of Cathy singing the full version of each song),
4) script with 18+ speaking parts and 11+ non-speaking parts (and the option to expand the parts to include more children or combine the parts for fewer children), Isaiah 9 & Luke 2 & Matthew 1 text, prop list, and staging.

Purchase of this musical Christmas 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!).

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, similar script but fewer 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 the children in your 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 musical children's Christmas 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 12-15 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 18+ speaking parts and 11+ non-speaking parts (and the option to expand the parts to include more children or combine the parts for fewer children), Isaiah 9 & Luke 2 & Matthew 1 text, prop list, and staging.  The script can be sent via e-mail to save shipping charges.

      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.

"It was a great experience to worship at your church today.  The Christmas program was wonderful!  What a treat!  It was well done and it is a message all will remember.  The children will remember the message because it was in their language and it was so meaningful.  Thank you and God bless!"
Arnie & Joyce R., St. Timothy Lutheran Church
