A Spiritual Physical for Musical Kids
By Kathie Hill

In Dr. Newheart's Neck-up Check-up, the children's choir is anxious to depart for an overnight trip. But, before they leave, Dr. Newheart arrives to complete a last-minute "neck-up check-up." Assisted in this "spiritual physical" by her colleagues—ophthalmologist Dr. Seymour Eisenmind, audiologist Dr. Huachu Hearasaya, speech therapist Betty Bitterweet, and sports specialist Dr. Hedda T'skya—Dr. Newheart gives the children a Biblical perspective on how God would have us use our eyes, ears, mouth, neck, and mind. Through a massive dose of humor and generous prescription of Scripture, this musical will help children and adults know how to keep their minds pure and their thoughts turned to the Lord.

Ages: 1st - 8th grade
Speaking parts: minimum of 11, with optional adult parts
Solos: minimum of 11
Set: bare stage, a choir room or outside scene with optional bus

One of my all time favorite musicals! A big hit with the children and the audience. The spiritual truths presented prompt all of us to daily give ourselves a spiritual "check-up". Thank you Kathie for keeping this musical available!

"Dr. Newheart's Neck-up Check-up" is one of the very best musicals we've ever done. This is the second time we've used this wonderful work. Kathie's music is exciting, singable, and easy to learn and contains a great Biblical message. The characters are fun and kids can really relate to the plot. I highly recommend you use this musical with your children's choir. It's outstanding!

Kathie's Note:The multiple and colorful characters make this work is so entertaining and provide lots of parts. Whether with adults, teens or kids in the lead roles, I’ve never seen a bad performance. The discipleship emphasis easily turns evangelistic as children examine that we live what we believe. Favorite songs: “Goin’ Away”, “Tame Your Tongue” and, “ Quick to Listen, Slow to Speak.”
