Garrettsville – Live theatre is always such a wonderful challenge. As with any artist, you start with a blank canvas and create a masterpiece. At times, the canvas (stage) becomes more like a puzzle, with pieces scattered all over the work area, but in the end, the pieces all come together to form one individualized piece of art. This production of “Cheaper By the Dozen” is just that, a work of art, which was once an empty, dark canvas. The actors become our paint and mesh together to form a colorful display of talent.

Our canvas is complete; and when the curtains open and the lights come up, our work of art will be on display for you to view, enjoy, and critique. 

“Cheaper by the Dozen”, is a true story of a family of 12. “Cheaper by the Dozen”  is based on a story written by Frank Gilbreth, Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth. It tells the story of Frank Bunker Gilbreth and Lillian Moller Gilbreth, and their twelve children. The book focuses on the many years the family resided in Montclair, New Jersey. The title comes from one of Frank Sr.’s favorite jokes: it often happened that when he and his family were out driving and stopped at a red light, a pedestrian would ask, “Hey, Mister! How come you got so many kids?” Gilbreth would pretend to ponder the question carefully, and then, just as the light turned green, would say, “Well, they come cheaper by the dozen, you know,” and drive off.

We think you will enjoy our presentation which will be held in the Iva Walker Auditorium located in the James A Garfield High School.
