The Christmas Clinic
The Christmas Clinic is a Christmas musical for preschool through elementary age children. This program includes a script with the Luke 2 text, speaking parts, and kid-friendly arrangements of 8 Christmas carols.
Feel free to hang out at The Christmas Clinic to see how a baseball injury, a wool scarf, a picture-taking aunt, a candy cane, and a pile of boxes can all be opportunities to tell the Christmas story. Your kids will be amazed at how the staff at The Christmas Clinic can work the Christmas story into every patient’s visit. A visit to the clinic promises that all of your children will be treated to a healthy dose of the Christmas story – the best medicine! Invite the audience to sing along – they love singing Christmas carols with the kids!
You have your choice of a full-length 40-minute program or a short 20-minute program – similar script but less music.

I want you to know how great The Christmas Clinic turned out. Lines were brief and easily memorized. Most students already knew the familiar Christmas carols. Costumes were simple. The plot was fun and kept with the ever-loved Christmas theme. God bless you!
Begging for more
I wanted to tell you that we performed The Christmas Clinic for our Christmas program this year. The kids and the congregation absolutely loved it! The kids and adults alike loved the variations on the traditional Christmas songs. They also loved that your musical allowed for so many kids to participate in many different ways. Many people have commented that they felt this was the best program the kids have ever done and are now begging for more!
The Christmas Clinic was a success. The program went off super and the parents loved it!
So many compliments
We got so many compliments. You made telling the same wonderful Christmas story so much fun by adding the clinic theme and the fact that we are all in need of a cure.
Still talking about it
I purchased The Christmas Clinic and we loved it! We had 73 children ages 3 to 18 leading us in a worship that the church is still talking about! It was a perfect fit that allowed everyone to participate according to their gifts – the outgoing children did the speaking parts and the children who wanted smaller parts were the Bible characters. I praise God for His inspiration to you and the message our children were able to share.
A grand time
I am writing to tell you that the congregation just loved The Christmas Clinic. People were laughing, singing, and having a grand time. My thanks to you.
A great success
Our assisted living family did The Christmas Clinic and it was a great success. The average age was 93.3! Thank you for your creativity.
Best musical worship
This year we had great fun with The Christmas Clinic! Some said it was the best musical worship the kids have ever done. Thank you for your continuing ministry in music.
