cheaper by the dozen

Cheaper by the Dozen, the Christopher Sergel play adapted from 1948 autobiographical book of the same name written by Frank Bunker Gilbreth Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey, will be performed at the Morsani Center for the Arts, 21030 Cortez Boulevard, Brooksville, Florida over two weekends on September 13-15 and 20-22.

First published in 1948 and still in print, the novel, Cheaper By the Dozen. is the true story of motion study experts and industrial management pioneers Frank Bunker Gilbreth (1868-1924) and Lillian Moller Gilbreth (1878-1972) and their family of 12 children; it was adapted as a stage play in 1992 by Christopher Sergel.

semi-autobiographical novel written by Frank Bunker Gilbreth Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey, published in 1948, the novel recounts the authors’ childhood lives growing up in a household of 12 children. The bestselling book was later adapted into a feature film by Twentieth Century Fox in 1950 and followed up by the sequel, Belles on Their Toes (1950), which was adapted as a 1952 film.

The title comes from one of Gilbreth’s favorite jokes, which played out in the movie, that when he and his family were out driving and stopped at a red light, a pedestrian would 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, would say: “Well, they come cheaper by the dozen, you know”, and drive off.

Shows are 7:30 pm on Fridays and Saturdays with 2:30 pm matinees on Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are $20, or $5 for children 13 and younger when purchased with an adult ticket. Senior admission to Sunday afternoon performances are only $15.

Admission includes coffee, tea, and dessert, available 30 minutes before each performance.
