Children in the Christmas musical Get in Line for Christmas.

In Get in Line for Christmas, your children get to make a stop at the Bethlehem Corner Market! Your kids will:
. . . watch the wise men standing in line to mail their gifts to Jesus & pick up some chocolate stars to snack on while they travel,
. . . observe the angels checking out the latest newspaper headlines regarding an upcoming concert on a Bethlehem hillside,
. . . see the shepherds shopping for wrapping paper for Jesus' gift.
As all of the people in the play gather to greet Jesus (the newborn savior) in Bethlehem, your children will discover that there is no line and plenty of room for all of us at the manger!

Accompaniment tracks (MP3s or CDs) come in handy when your piano player isn't available or when you need to free up your hands to teach motions or sign language to your preschool children.  These accompaniment tracks 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 play, the full script and the vocal CD (a recording of Cathy singing the full version of each song) are available for $10 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 $20.  This script includes 15 speaking parts and 15+ non-speaking parts (and the option to expand the parts to include more children or combine the parts for fewer children), prop list, and staging.  The script can be sent via e-mail to save shipping charges.
