Let Little Big Stuff serve up a down-home Christmas feast for your ears, eyes and hearts this season with the new musical for kids, The Night Shift Before Christmas. Join the other "night-owls" at Bethlehem's only 24-hour roadside restaurant, the Falafel House! Owner Mo has announced that the overnight business is just too slow, even with the recent census crowds, to justify staying open all night anymore. But head waitress Flo has a heart for those night-shift shepherds, the local innkeeper and the other regulars who frequent the eatery in the wee hours for their signature falafels and MLTs (mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich). Mo's complaint that "nothing ever happens at night in this sleepy little town" goes down the drain with the dirty dishwater when a brilliant light splits the darkness over the fields outside of town, and surprised shepherds burst through the doors with a stunning tale of angels and an amazing birth announcement. Soon, the late-night crowd is bristling with excitement to join the shepherds to see and worship the long-awaited Savior, born during the night shift -- right there in Bethlehem! Featuring all the menu items you expect from Little Big Stuff: ultra-cool songs, solid Biblical message, fun characters and story that kids love and adults appreciate, you can dish up an unforgettable Christmas for your kids this year with The Night Shift Before Christmas.

  More Great Features Available  
  Individual Songs from the The Night Shift Before Christmas. Not doing a full dramatic musical performance this year, but you'd love to use one or more songs from the musical in a worship service or special program without buying the full musical? Now you can! Click here to request.  
  Lyric Sheets and Vocal-only Lead-sheets. Younger kids can't read from the full choral score, or the price of choral books just too prohibitive? We now offer two additional, low-cost options. Fully legal, licensed reproducible and projectable lyric sheets (with script) for $2.00 per child, or lyric with vocal line on single stave of music (with script) for $3.25 per child. Lyric-sheet option is "words-only," Lead-sheet option has melody line vocal score.  BOTH options include the Script for no additional cost.  Click here to request.  
  Standalone Accompanist Score. The choral books for The Night Shift Before Christmas are Singer's Editions, which means that they do NOT contain a printed keyboard accompaniment score as many of our earlier musicals do. Therefore, you may purchase the full Accompanist Score as a standalone pdf file for $7.99, the same retail price as a choral book. This comes with the right to print out a single copy for use by director or accompanist. (The Accompanist Score is included as part of the Director's Resource Kit, so if you are planning to purchase the Director's Resource Kit, there is no need to also purchase the standalone score). Click here to request.  
  Printed Professional Rhythm Charts. Want to accompany your performance with live band instead of the pre-recorded track? Professionally typeset Rhythm Chart pack is available for $100. Rhythm only, for rhythm keyboard, guitar, bass, drums, featuring studio-style rhythm slashes, chord symbols, and occasional melodic cues, along with horn parts (trumpets, trombone alto sax) on two of the songs. The package also includes the full piano keyboard accompanist score for use in conjunction with the rhythm parts (NOT for use by singers). Click here to request.
