First released in 1991, Dr. Newheart’s Christmas Cure is a Broadway-styled 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 only be cured by accepting Christ. In the end, even 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.”

Kathie's Note: Because people so loved the characters in this musical, it ended up becoming the prequel to Dr. Newheart’s Neck-Up Check Up released in 1998. You need strong actors or enough time to help children pull off the over-blown characters that provide constant humor throughout the script. But that comedy and the “Disneyesque” orchestral arrangements make this Broadway-styled musical one that people want to present over and over again. I know I did!
