"'Takin' It Through the Day' helps teens take a humorous and practical look at not only reading the Bible every day, but allowing what they've read to shape their response to the situations life gives them during the day."
                                                                                                           Cathy


In Takin' It Through the Day, we join a middle-school/high-school youth group as they take on the challenge of memorizing a Bible verse and putting that verse into practice. You'll spend the day with a teenager who uses "sticky" notes as a reminder, a young person decked out in "God's armor", a worry-er, a youth who's "learned to be content", and an entire youth group that longs to be attentive to God's "still, small voice" and "precious, holy counsel".

Teens who are taking a break after their Takin' It Through the Day musical.
Purchase of this youth musical program ($55 plus shipping) grants you permission to make as many copies of the sheet music and script as needed for your musical performance plus permission to make and distribute copies of the vocal CD (a recording of Cathy singing the full version of each song) to your kids (a great way for your youth choir to learn the music quickly!).

To preview this musical play for youth,
a script and 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'd like to use the 10-12 minute script as your play and insert your own songs, purchase of performance rights for the script is $18.  This script includes  24 speaking parts (and the option to expand the parts to include more youth or combine the parts for fewer youth), prop list & 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 this youth musical, you have the following options:
      1.   Purchase sheet music.  Sheet music ($5.50 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 ($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.


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 kids 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!

  "We used 'Takin' It Through the Day' for music camp and had a WONDERFUL week. The kids and I totally enjoyed each and every piece of music. I really like the 'biblical' foundation of the text and music. I will need another musical for next year's camp, so keep on writing!"

Anita K., Saskatchewan Music Camp for Children
 

"'Takin' It Through the Day' was so much fun!  The kids did a great job and it was so great for the congregation!  I heard many, many great comments.  Thank you!"

Pastor Ruth, St. Timothy Lutheran Church
 

"My youth choir presented 'Takin' It Through the Day' and both the choir and congregation enjoyed it very much.  They said it was the best one we've done.  It is difficult to find musicals for this age, so thank you!"
Janet P., St. Luke Lutheran Church

"Our 7th and 8th graders performed 'Takin' It Through the Day' and they did a FANTASTIC job!  Thank you for writing such great God-honoring music and a great script.  I hope you will continue to compose more musicals for teens, as this really fills a niche."'

Sheree F., St. Stephen's Church
 

"We found this musical to be a great and innovative way for our counseling staff to get the Gospel message through to our campers. They were a captive audience all summer and many stated the musical had been one of the highlights of the week."

 Site Director, Heather L., Lake Wapogasset Lutheran Bible Camp

"I still have a love of performance from all those musicals I was in that you wrote.  I think your work really helped me to become who I am today!"
Josh, a high school graduate

"Our cast members had so much fun with 'Takin' It Through the Day' last spring. Your music is great and the messages are inspirational. Thanks for sharing your talents with us so we can share the word with others!"

Terry M., Sydenham St. United Church

"We have used your musicals the past three summers and think they are GREAT!!"

Pete A., Portage Lake Covenant Bible Camp
 

"What I liked about it was its Biblical foundation. It was joyful and interesting while at the same time substantive. I noticed the joy that the young people exhibited as they entered into this musical. It seemed like it spoke to them as well as to those of us who were in the congregation."

Pastor Vernon R., Prince of Peace Lutheran

"We are really excited to perform 'Takin' It Through the Day'.  We love the different styles of music and that the script is simple and we can adapt it to our needs.  Thank you, Cathy!"

Jeanne H., Pleasant Hills Community Presbyterian Church
