Epiphany Players Drama Ministry is pleased to present
Dr. Newheart’s Christmas Cure

Dr. Newheart's Christmas Cure

 

A Children’s Musical by Kathie Hill
Directed by Jackie (Darnell) Randall
Presented during worship December 11-12, 2021

 
Participation is open to anyone in grades 1-8. Dr. Newheart’s Christmas Cure, directed by Jackie (Darnell) Randall, will be presented during worship, December 11-12 in the Far Hills Celebration Center. Dr. Newheart’s Christmas Cure is a Broadway-style musical with a timeless message.  When the kids come to the clinic suffering from the overkill of Christmas, Dr. Newheart diagnoses their malady as the “Christmas Day Dumps.” Through the help of the clinic staff, Drs. Fric and Frac, the “Dis”orderlies and Pink Ladies, Mildred, Maude and Ethel, the kids realize they have a heart problem that can only be cured by accepting Christ. In the end, even the cranky Nurse Philpott receives a new heart for Christmas and all the mayhem and humor is capped with a touching musical invitation for Christ to “Come in My Heart.”
