Holiday on Robinhood Lane: The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (1989)


December 8-10, 1989


Community Players Theatre

A Holiday on Robinhood Lane Production


In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids—probably the most inventively awful children in history. This delightful comedy is adapted from the best-selling Young Adult book, and has become a holiday staple for theatre across the United States!

Written by and based on the book by Barbara Robinson

Historian’s Corner

The sixth Holiday on Robinhood Lane production was the first production that did not use an original script. This story was based on the best-selling children’s book, “The Best Christmas Pageant Every,” and was dramatized by Barbara Robinson, the novel’s author. Like many past Holiday on Robinhood Lane productions, this show used many family members as cast and chorus.
