Biographical Sketch

Barbara Webb Robinson was born October 24, 1927, in Portsmouth, OH and was educated at Allegheny College in Pennsylvania. Known for her zany characters engaging in outrageous actions, Robinson repeatedly takes things in uproarious measures to the apt children's audience she fittingly targets. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, published in 1972 has received countless accolades and was adapted to stage and screen in the early 80s. Robinson died July 9, 2013 in Pennsylvania.
