NOTICE 02/011/2011: For those of you who saw the play, written in 1976,
or read the book, written in 1996, and you liked it, I want to tell you,
that the movie Cancel Christmas,
produced by Hallmark 2011,
is not from my play or my book. I also wrote a screenplay.
I wondered how long it would take for someone to discover my title.

Will Santa fill Sam's Dreams?

Will Santa publish the new illustrated version of Cancel Christmas?

Directed by Ron Howard - I met Ron Howard years ago through his PR rep. at a benefit. See Photos on side bar. That is me with the beard.

Musical arrangements and orchestrations by Paul Hoffert & Howard Shore. Met them when RCA sent me to Toronto Canada to photgraph "The Lighthouse," a thirteen piece rock band that is still going strong today. Paul Hoffert (Keyboard), along With Skip Prokop (drummer/vocalist) organized the group. Howard Shore (alto saxaphone), has gone on to win three Academy Awards for the musical arrangements in "The Lord Of The Rings" plus many other accomplishments.

The cast is as follows:


Santa Claus - Nathan Lane -   Never met Nathan Lane. Always liked his movies, I saw him on Broadway in A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum. He will make a wonderful Santa.

Bogwig - Robin Williams - Robin WilliamsNever met Robin Williams, however Paula Samonte met him while performing at a Christopher Reeves Benefit. Robin will make Bogwig leap off of the screen.
Mrs. Santa Claus -
Whoopi Goldberg I met Whoopi Goldberg when she was living in Malabu. We had a few interesting events happen. She will make a wonderful Mrs. Santa Claus
Gribby -
Renée Zellweger - Never met Renée Zellweger, but she is one of my favorites. She will make a charming Gribby.
Grug -
George Clooney -  Never met George Clooney. He is about eight months older than my son. I feel like I know him from another life. Just saw his film "Up In The Air" for the second time. He will make a great Grug. Any role he takes will be great!

The Narrator - Sir Monti Rock III -   I met Monti years ago in New York and we have been friends ever since. He is a born story teller. To his site.

The rest of the cast will be selected soon.
