Center Stage Theatre Presents: Cheaper By the Dozen

Based on a true story, Cheaper by the Dozen tells the story of the Gilbreth family. Imagine your father is one of the great pioneers of industrial efficiency. Then suppose he decides, for no apparent reason, to apply his unorthodox methods to you and to the rest of your big family. The results are terribly embarrassing, funny and, it must be admitted, extremely effective! To the oldest daughter, Anne, however, the chief effect seems to be that of making them seem ridiculous to everyone else at school. 919.583.8432.



Malpass Brothers, Jill Howell, and Southern Ambassadors/Southern Grace sing at Adamsville Baptist Church in Goldsboro. Silent Auction at 5:30. Gospel Sing at 6:30.
