2012-2013 Season

Cheaper By The Dozen

Dad was (in fact) one of the great pioneers in industrial efficiency and he sings to his large family, ‘What works in the factory works in the home.” His older daughters, however, rebel against their father. Anne, the oldest, sings of her coming independence unaware that her father has a heart condition and is driving them toward super-efficiency so the family will be able to survive better when he’s gone. What Dad doesn’t realise is that Anne has grown. The breaking apart of Anne and her father and then their coming to a special maturity and mutual respect give meaning and emotion to what is otherwise a delightful and original comedy romp!
