Thanks to the power of CASH ™ for the first time on any internet, nylon.net is proud to present the programme for Sabrina's long-forgotten SABRINA SHOW at the Theatre Royal in Brisbane, 1959.

Filled with spectacle and sheer fabulousness, the show boasted that the theatre was disinfected daily with PINE-O-CLEEN.
I dare not ponder why that boast was necessary.

But if you write to nylon.net, we may yet persuade Sabrina to return to Brisbane after nearly 60 years to star in a revival of

This page gives the following valuable information:

It is our extreme pleasure tonight to bring to your Theatre Royal the fabulous British star of stage, screen and television — Sabrina, by overwhelming public demand.
Originally it was only intended that Sabrina would play Festival Hall before leaving for Las Vegas, but a fortunate last-minute change of dates has made it possible for us to accede to the hundreds of requests of our patrons that we bring this most sensational star to the Royal.

And be sure to check if you have a Lucky Programme Number!

As a two-year old, I couldn't wait to enjoy Nick's "smorgenborg" luncheon.
But mum stubbornly insisted that I be weaned first, and introduced to solid food.
Bad mum.

Laurie quite strangely draws attention to the "rather depleted" ballet which is the backbone of the show.
The dearth of decent dancers was apparently caused by the brutal expectations and demands of Ballet Mistress Miss Doris Whimp.

I couldn't decide whether to opt for the piano or the slippers. So I got both.

Regular Monday-nighter Tony Healy was missed from his usual seat last week. It seems Mr. Healy was otherwise engaged driving Sabrina's Chevrolet Corvette up from Sydney...

First person to escort Sabrina to afternoon tea in Brisbane was none other than our regular patron Tony Brady. We always said Tony gets to know all the right people.
