In Signs of Christmas, you join a group of kids in search of signs in the neighborhood that tell the Christmas story. "No Vacancy", "Quiet, Please", "Sheep Xing", "Caution: Angels Ahead", "Follow the Star", and "Help Wanted" point the way as "Y'all Come" and join your children for a hoe-down at a barn in Bethlehem celebrating the promised "sign" of a savior... "a baby wrapped in cloth and lying in a manger".

Signs used in the Signs of Christmas music program.

You have your choice
of a full-length 40-minute program ($50 plus shipping, performance time: 40 minutes) or a short 20-minute program ($40 plus shipping, similar script but fewer/shorter songs - performance time: 20 minutes).

A keyboard-only accompaniment CD
(no vocals) is also available for $20 plus shipping.
Prefer digital format for your accompaniment tracks?  MP3s are available for $3 per song and can be e-mailed.  No shipping charge!
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 program,
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 11 speaking parts and 8+ 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.

If you already have a script and you prefer to purchase individual songs from Cathy's children's Christmas musicals, you have the following options:

"I got rave reviews about 'Signs of Christmas' and dozens of compliments specifically about the music.  What a blessing.  Thank you."

Angela S., Agape Christian Academy

"Our church thoroughly enjoyed 'Signs of Christmas'.  The children learned the songs fast because the music was full of so much personality and variety AND the sign language was as beautiful as I had imagined!  Anyway, we got rave reviews and I wanted to pass them on."

Todd W., Church of Christ

"'Signs of Christmas' was so easy to put together.  The children (even the boys!) loved the music and wanted to practice and sing.  Thanks for providing us with a great way to tell the Christmas story."

Sandy H., Calvary Lutheran Church

"'Signs of Christmas' was FABULOUS!!  The children and the audience enjoyed the music and it was a neat way to tell the story of the birth of our Lord and Savior.  It will be etched in my memory for a long time."

Karla W., United Methodist Church

"We presented 'Signs of Christmas' and the congregation was giggling and grinning from ear to ear throughout the performance.  I heard from many that our presentation was an inspiring and joyful gift.  Our kids LOVED the music and sang out like we've never heard them sing before!  Thanks for sharing your gifts of music and words with those of us who are always looking for creative, fresh, and fun ways to teach our children about God."

Steve O., First Presbyterian Church

"We loved 'Signs of Christmas'.  The children have so much fun with the music.  They can't wait to start on the next musical and don't want to wait until Christmas to do another play.  Thank you for your inspired ministry for children.  It allows them to witness to God's 'children' of all ages and use their talents and gifts for God's purpose."

Diane M., Church of God

"I just wanted to tell you that we did the 'Signs of Christmas' musical last year at our church.  We are a small church and wanted to use all of the children.  I broke up the script and songs into Sunday School class groups so each class did the script that went with their song.  We had one dress rehearsal, sang it at two nursing homes and then did our big performance for the church.  Everyone was amazed at how easily it went together and everyone loved the program!  Thank you so much!"
Luann S.

"Our Christmas program was the best we've had in years.  Your style of music and how it all went together was truly a 'God thing'".

Noreen S., Church of God

"As a musical director at my school, I often write the Christmas musical dialogues and find music to go with it.  This year it is nice to have a break and have one already written that's tried and true.  One of our sister schools used 'Signs of Christmas' last year and said it was a hit with everyone.  I'm looking forward to having our students do it this year!"

Cindy W., Zion Lutheran School

"We presented 'Signs of Christmas' to the congregation and EVERYBODY loved it . . . the children and the congregation!"

Laurel W., Berea Lutheran Church
