It's so nice to find a play with several characters and they all have fun moments on stage. I always have to do large cast plays and all my kids want to be in the play. This play fits the bill.

The show offers just the right blend of comedy and melancholy. The whole cast and crew began to feel and behave like one big extension of the Gilbreth family.

Product Description

Davino, Catskill Theatre Works, Inc. It was well received by the cast and audience. I'm looking forward to someday directing its sequel, Belles on Their Toes. The stage directions are marvelous and the sound effects tape was especially helpful. It is the perfect mix of simple sets, funny lines and yet deep meaning. It has all the elements you want -- the warm and the fuzzies. It also has a lot of great positive energy. It was perfectly suited to a multiage cast who were obviously enjoying each character and line.

Cheaper by the Dozen

It was well received by audience and cast alike, and is our favorite production to date. Everyone loved the period costumes and sayings of the day. The characters and their struggles and triumphs are realistic and nostalgic. I always have to do large-cast plays because of all my kids that want to be in the play. They love the characters and the great fun of this play. This year was a year for new talent and I wanted to initiate them with a fun, creative show which wasn't challenging technically.

I found it the perfect vehicle for our dinner theater production. I have a lot of girls so it fit our group well. It is a great combination of comedy and pathos. The script allowed for the depth development of the characters.

The Homecoming Musical. Dad had enough gall to be divided into three parts, and the ability and poise to backstop the front he placed before the world. He'd walk into a factory like the Zeiss works in Germany or the Pierce Arrow plant in this country and announce that he could speed up production by one-fourth. He'd do it too.

One reason he had so many children--there were twelve of us -- was that he was convinced anything he and Mother teamed up on was sure to be a success. Dad always practiced what he preached, and it was just about impossible to tell where his scientific management company ended and his family life began.

His office was always full of children, and he often took two or three of us, and sometimes all twelve, on business trips. Frequently, we'd tag along at his side, pencils and notebooks in our hands, when Dad toured a factory, which had hired him as an efficiency expert. Dad took moving pictures of us children washing dishes, so that he could figure out how we could reduce our motions and thus hurry through the task. Irregular jobs, such as painting the back porch or removing a stump from the.

Each child who wanted extra pocket money submitted a sealed bid saying what he would do the job for. The lowest bidder got the contract. Dad installed process and work charts in the bathrooms. Every child old enough to write - and Dad expected his offspring to start writing at a tender age - was required to initial the charts in the morning after he had brushed his teeth, taken a bath combed his hair, and made his bed.

At night each child had to weigh himself, plot the figure on a graph, and initial the process charts again after he had done his homework washed his hands and face, and brushed his teeth Mother wanted to have a place on the charts for saying prayers, but Dad said as far as he was concerned prayers were voluntary.
