It’s never too early to begin planning for the holidays! This year’s Christmas program will be a musical called “Signs of Christmas.” The musical has minimal props, brief speaking parts for many children, and several fun songs. Children will receive a lyric sheet and CD at the first practice on September 30. Please have children listen to the CD when it’s convenient so they can start learning the songs.
Musical practice will be part of the Sunday School rotation in October and November. The practice schedule is below. Please come!
We did a musical for our program in 2010 called “Pieces of Christmas,” and it turned out great. This year’s program is by the same composer and promises to be lots of fun. See cathysmusic.com if you’d like to learn more. Questions? Contact Sarah Hancock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
