  • Cancel Christmas was originally written as a play. First produced in Sonoma, California, at the Sebastiani Theatre, where it ran for three years - also done in Petaluma and San Rafael, CA. In 1996, it was produced in Ukiah, CA and at the Patio Playhouse in Escondido, CA, with great success. In 1999 it was produced at the San Diego Children's Museum.

    "My little girl is reading it for the third time."
    "Sam, I have read and truly enjoyed the story. It is wonderful to read something so beautiful in such a time when children are all but forgotten for being children. Gribby is a great character." -Christopher
