Let’s dress up for Christmas.
The shepherds watch the sheep.
They watch them when they’re eating.
They watch them when they sleep.
One night out on a hillside,
they woke up from a snooze.
An angel in the sky said,
“Wake up! I’ve got good news”.

I just love Let’s Dress Up for Christmas – a no-stress musical that is very touching. Way to go, Cathy!!!! This musical is a director’s dream come true.
We received so many comments on how the songs were great and creative, how the recitations were great to listen to, and how the actions to the songs were cute. I appreciate a child-friendly and developmentally appropriate Christ-centered worship program!
Just what I was looking for
The Christmas program is absolutely adorable! This is just what I was looking for! It clearly tells the Christmas story, is short, has enough action to keep the children engaged, yet has music diverse enough to keep me interested! Keep it comin’!
Delighted to do it
The Christmas play was great. The children were so happy and delighted to do it. Even the bigger kids wanted to help. Thanks again!
Loved the music
I wanted to say that I did Let’s Dress Up for Christmas and the parents, teachers, and children LOVED the music! My preschool director said that, in 24 years at our school, she hasn’t seen a better Christmas performance. Thank you for providing easy to learn, fun and festive songs that my preschoolers could perform.
Everyone raved and said this is the best Christmas program we have ever done! We took the “show” on the road and visited four nursing homes. This has helped my little ones understand how wonderful it feels to share a gift over and over.
I love Let’s Dress Up for Christmas. It is wonderful! The children are so happy and they are having so much fun.
Love the hand motions
What a wonderful musical! The children really picked up on the songs very quickly and we love the hand motions!! Thank you very much!
