Like someone else asked I would love to purchase the soundtrack. We saw it many times in Townsend and purchased the cassette but cannot find it now.

My uncle was an original cast member, and even I was able to perform in the ensemble for a week while on vacation as a child. Very fond memories of this cast, crew, and production as a whole. Certainly wish this script would come out of hiding and go back into production somewhere. Also would someone review the uploaded soundtrack. It appears to be missing the closing number. Thank you to whomever uploaded this content!!!!

Please help! Desperately trying to locate the soundtrack for Christy: The Musical, and this site seems to reference it. How can I listen to the music and perhaps buy a copy? My wife and I saw Christy:The Musical when on a trip as a very young married couple many years ago. She always talks about that performance/show, and now that we are approaching our 30th wedding anniversary, I would like to find the soundrack to it. Thanks!
