The truth that the most valuable gift in earth, salvation is absolutely free,

yet some people still refuse to accept it, is the basis of this delightful children’s Christmas musical.

Watch as two angels, disguised as department store clerks, try to get the filthy rich Van Smythe sisters.

The frantic Ms. Ima Rush and the busy company president Mr. Bigginton to accept a free Christmas present.

Free gift contains songs in various styles from reggae to rap to make this musical fun to practice and easy to perform.
