Cashmere High School's "Sabrina Fair" revives classic romance

Posted

CASHMERE - The spotlight is set to shine on drama students of Cashmere High School as they prepare to bring the romantic comedy, "Sabrina Fair" to the stage this week.

This modern-day Cinderella story, set in 1950s Long Island, NY, served as the inspiration for the movie "Sabrina" with Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart, along with the 1990s remake with Harrison Ford.

The story unfolds as Sabrina, the daughter of the Larrabees' chauffeur, returns to Long Island after spending five years in Paris. The Larrabee sons are entranced by her youthful vitality and newly found sophistication. When a wealthy suitor follows her from Paris, Sabrina must make a choice, said director Susan Gubsch.

“People will love the clever script and the interesting characters,” Gubsch said. “The 1950s costumes by Mrs. Finch are wonderful and the students are doing a great job. It is a fun romantic comedy.”

Students have been working hard on this since the beginning of September. Gubsch designed the set and Dave Erickson was the head of set construction. The cast and crew built and painted the set with their parents.

Leading the cast as Sabrina is Ali Moran, who has received nominations from the Wenatchee Apple Awards and The Fifth Avenue Theater.

 “Ali is a leader on and off stage and has the most amazing work ethic,” Gubsch said

“The male lead is sophomore Dylan Cornea,” she said. “He was on the crew for the fall play last year and decided to be an actor this year. He has over 270 lines to memorize and he is doing a great job.”

Other cast members include Lily Erdmann, Titus Corbaley, Gabby Winchester, Trip Martin, Teddy Fox, Kalli Miller, Chandler Clark, Georgia Hemmer, Hayden Miller, Ruby Edwards, Makenna Fritz, Riley Acheson and Savannah Caruso.

The show opened on Wednesday, Oct. 25. and will be showcased again on Thursday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Oct. 28 at the Cashmere Middle School Auditorium. Please note there is no Friday show due to the Cashmere football game.

The doors will open at 6:15 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens and are only available at the door. Seating is first come, first serve.

“You won't want to miss this classic romantic comedy,” Gubsch said. “Thanks for supporting Cashmere High School drama.”
