The El Paso Playhouse

El Paso's Longest Running Theatre




by  Barbara Robinson

adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher, from the novella Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

Directed by Freida Voeks

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 kids in history. You won't believe the mayhem - and the fun - when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!

This delightful comedy is adapted from the best-selling Young Adult book, and has become a holiday staple for groups across the United States! 

"An American classic." - McCall's Magazine

"One of the best Christmas stories ever - and certainly one of the funniest." -The SeattleTimes

For its 55th season, there have been a few changes. Performances will run for three weekends instead of the usual four. Also, teachers pay only $12 and Children 12 and under pay $9.00. THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER



November 3o - December 16, 2018
