  • Stone’s Throw Dinner Theatre is proud to present its upcoming performance of “Cheaper by the Dozen”, dramatized by Christopher Sergel, from the book by Frank B. Gilbreth, Jr., and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey and directed by Tom Brown.
    Synopsis: The story follows members of a large and unique family whose father is one of the great pioneers of industrial efficiency.
    He applies his unorthodox methods to his large family. The results are terribly embarrassing, funny and—it must be admitted—extremely effective! Anne, the oldest, rebels.
    Both Dad and she are miserable at the lack of understanding between them.
    But there is a reason behind dad’s methods. This play is both amusing and touching and great for all ages.
