Aside from writing the book, music & lyrics for 10 original musicals, I’ve also enjoyed the challenge of composing new scores for some of the world’s most famous stories:-
Alice in Wonderland,
The Little Mermaid,
The Jungle Book
A Christmas Carol.
For my next project I chose
‘The Little Match Girl’, a short story by Hans Christian Andersen.
I had forgotten just how 'short' this story was, so I decided to write a descriptive ballet piece, with some of the musical narrative taken from some of my musicals.
For anyone who never got round to reading this ‘Winter’s Tale’, I've included Hans Andersen's full text. to guide you with the dance interpretation.
When I wrote Mister Santa Claus I thought it would be fun get away from the 'norm' and make a comedy version, just for my own benefit so addeda few words of dialoguel The book version is only the song. I had a word with my good friend, (Ray) or should I say 'Mr Santa Claus', who gave it his 'Seal of Approval'

If you're looking for an evening's entertainment based on the Christmas theme, I've put together this album containing a dozen of my own carols and songs, taken from my musicals and linked them with some verse. You could also add a few of the more popular festive songs to your festive programme making it a truly memorable occasion.
Here are some of the songs from the Christmas is Here album:-
