Mrs. Wallace informs her class that one student will be randomly chosen to make up a story and tell it to the Christmas assembly. All students beg to be picked except for Redheaded Robbie/Robin, whose words come out funny whenever he/she is nervous. Robbie/Robin is selected, and he/she asks Big Eddie, Cool Katie, and Munching Max for help. These friends suggest stories about presents, parties, and pranks, but Robbie/Robin reminds them that Christmas is for sharing, kindness, and forgiveness.

At the Christmas assembly Robbie/Robin tries to speak, but the words come out wrong. Big Eddie, Cool Katie, and Munching Max take the stage and tell how they were visited by a redheaded angel (Robbie/Robin). After Robbie/Robin's visit Max shared presents, Katie befriended a lonely girl, and Max forgave his sister. The assembly ends with tears and applause for Robbie/Robin, his friends, and their wonderful Christmas story.

"It's a wonderful story about friendship and how friends can help each other...For a child with a disability to be loved and appreciated by his friends is a noble message, and Mr. Luttrell tells it well." - Penelope Reed, the Producing Artistic Director at Hedgerow Theatre in Media, Pennsylvania

"The good news is "Redheaded Robbie's Christmas Story" is no Catcher in the Rye. It is no indictment of hypocrites, phonies, or society in general. Robbie's message is as corny as it is sweet; Give, forgive, and be nice. And something else Robbie has over Holden Caulfield: He sings." - Gil Spencer, Delaware County Daily Times"A new-fashioned Christmas story." - The Pocono Record"It's a really sweet story. It has a lot of heart...a perfect holiday event for families." - Corinna Sowers-Adler, Children's Theater Director at Pocono Playhouse and Bucks County Playhouse in Pennsylvania
