Christmas Musical Spotlight: The Christmas Puzzle

It used to be that all Christmas kids musicals were about 40 minutes long and required a fairly large number of kids to perform.  That’s not the case anymore.  More and more publishers have begun producing programs that can work well for ministries that have a smaller group of kids to work with.  These programs also work well for smaller puppet ministries.  “The Christmas Puzzle” is one of those programs.  It’s shorter in format (about 22 minutes) and has just five speaking parts.

In “The Christmas Puzzle,” four cousins are snowed in at Grandma’s house and all they can find to entertain themselves is an old puzzle.  But the pieces of this puzzle each represent a different piece of the Christmas story.

The program features six songs: “Picture Perfect Plan,” “Come, Thou Long-expected Jesus,” “Angels We Have Heard on High,” “The Manger Throne,” “Here We Are, Been Following a Star,” and “The Whole Story Medley.”

The creators of this program designed it to be a “simple musical.”  The number of characters is limited, the set is a simple living room, the costumes are seasonal clothing.  However, the music also allows opportunities to be creative and expand the production value in whatever way God takes you.
