Touch of An Angel
A Christmas Musical for Children
Words and Music by Ruth Elaine Schram and Scott D. Schram
Tracks Orchestrated and recorded by Tim Hayden
Throughout time, the touch of an angel has changed people, events, and even the course of history. In the Christmas story, God used angels to change the lives of ordinary people with extraordinary news, missions and blessings. All of these people- Zechariah, Elizabeth, Joseph, Mary, the shepherds and the magi- were changed forever by the touch of an angel.
The Narrator can "read" the story, and the seven additional speaking parts are simple and easily memorized. Directors can expand the cast to accommodate larger groups, and the staging can be as simple or complex as you desire. As an added bonus, the authors suggest that the musical conclude with an Angel Food Cake reception in which the "angels" (singers) serve as "heavenly hosts!"
Approximately 20-25 minutes long for grades K-6. May be performed by as few as 8-10 children or many more.
