Special Delivery is a Christmas music program for preschool through elementary age children. This musical includes a script with speaking parts and 12 kid-friendly Christmas songs.
There’s nothing like a Special Delivery! Your children are invited to ride along with a delivery person who is making special deliveries to everyone in the Christmas story.
. . . The angels will receive a “Glory to God in the Highest” song they located on the internet.
. . . The wisemen will get their mail-ordered gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh just in time.
. . . After Mary and Joseph and the shepherds all receive their special deliveries, we will greet God’s “special delivery” to the world – the newborn Savior, Jesus.
You have your choice of a full-length 40-minute program or a short 20-minute program – similar script but less music.
Check out the following songs that are included in the 40-minute version of Special Delivery:

I have two words for Special Delivery: SMASH HIT!! The children & audience loved it!
Belted them out
The people absolutely loved the songs and how the students “belted them out”! They caught all the clever lines, laughing throughout the play. The students related later that the evening was “awesome”. Thanks for writing a kid-friendly play!
Money well spent
I wanted you to know how much the kids loved the music. They did a great job! Many people said it was the best Christmas program they had ever seen. The catchy songs and biblical themes are very suitable to the needs of our church. Our money was well spent!
Special Delivery was very well received thanks to your wonderful music and contemporary script. It made the practicing and memorizing easy for the children.
Humming the tunes
The children loved your music and learned it quickly! Parents told story after story of how their children were humming the tunes at home and looking forward to the next Christmas rehearsal. Thanks!
Ease of staging
This will be our fourth year in a row that we’ve done one of your Christmas programs. We just love the format and the ease of staging the productions! Blessings!
Look forward to it
For the past 4 years now, our school has performed one of your Christmas programs. Our school has not been the same since! Every year we look forward to working on the next play! Thank you for all you do to help us spread the good news!
Fun and catchy
I just wanted to let you know how much fun we had with Special Delivery. The music was fun and catchy, and most importantly, centered in the Gospel. Your work has been a blessing to all of us.
