The Cannon Theatre of Littleton, MA, is so pleased to present this hilarious, heartwarming tale of “America’s best loved family”, set in the 1920s.

Based on a true story, Cheaper by the Dozen tells the story of the Gilbreth family.

Their inventor father, who is well-known for bringing better efficiency to factories, keeps his family of twelve children running just as efficiently.

This play is told from the point of view of two of his children reflecting on the last few months before his death, as he was preparing the family for his imminent departure, even while most of his children were unaware of the fact.

It is a funny, heart-warming, and family-friendly coming-of-age tale that is not to be missed.

Performances are March 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30 at 7:30 pm, with two matinees on March 16 and March 23 at 2:00 pm Tickets are available at www.thecannontheatre.org: Adults $25, Students/Seniors $20.
