“Cheaper by the Dozen,” Christopher Sergel’s adaptation of Frank Gilbreth and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey’s biographical book of the same title will be performed by the Community Players at the Main Street Theatre Dec. 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, and 17 at 7 p.m.


There will also be a special matinee performance Sunday, Dec. 11 at 2 p.m.

The title comes from a family joke. When he and his family were out driving and stopped at a red light, a pedestrian would often 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, he’d say, "Well, they come cheaper by the dozen, you know."

Cast members include David Woody, LaWanda Simmons, Crista Taylor, Reese Walker, Aldyn Green, Jamey Portinga, Jillian Cartwrigt, Paige Leftwich, Brynden Andrews, Cale Cooper, Boston Peeks, Kate Hutley, Kendall Smith, John D'Avingon, Blake Stewart and Gavin Walker.

“We are fortunate to have a cast of seasoned actors, combined with some exciting young talent in this production,” director Sherrie Shadix said. “This classic will be great for the holiday season. Our audiences will experience the warmth of family as well as some hilarious moments.”

Reservations are now being accepted for the seven performances of “Cheaper by the Dozen.” Call  Main Street Theatre at 903-885-0107 or go online to www.mainsttheater.com.

Performance dates and times are Dec. 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 11, at 2 p.m. at Main Street Theatre located at 227 Main St. in downtown Sulphur Springs.
