Cast & Crew of "Sabrina"

Cast & Crew of “Sabrina”





Father has taken up the hobby of going to funerals
Mother is fixated on the amenities
Younger brother is lovesick
Older brother is consumed with practical jokes and further amassing the family fortune
That’s when the lovely spirited chauffer’s daughter Sabrina returns from Paris and stirs things up
Not to mention the singing cockatoo and other surprises

A charming romantic comedy with laugh out loud lines and a cast of delightful characters

Holiday Poster
Essex Community Players present ” HOLIDAY PRESENTS ” a fun filled family show that celebrates, with comedy and music, the holiday season.
The story takes you along with the family members, big and small, as they prepare for the big day. But not just the family, you will also get to see the magical world of the presents that wait excitedly for the most wonderful day of the year. They will remind us through their musical journey the importance of family and friends during this festive season.
