From the Director
We had a very successful preview performance of Cheaper by the Dozen last night. This first performance was very solid and the house was almost full! I couldn’t ask for much more.
I am so proud of the entire cast of this production, especially the 12 Academy students featured in the show. They have listened to me every day of the rehearsal process drone on about “projection”. Well I am happy to say that you can hear every person on the stage as well or better than any show we have produced. That is high praise. It is also very gratifying to have every cast member hit their marks and deliver their lines with such professionalism. Especially when one remembers that the cast includes several actors and actresses younger than 12!
Cheaper by the Dozen is not a “cutting edge” show. It is sweet, simple and warm and it harkens back to a simpler more gentle time in our history. However, the dynamics of the relationship between parents and kids remains pretty much the same. If you want to enjoy an evening at the theatre that makes you smile from ear to ear throughout the evening, then this show is the ticket. Make plans now to attend. This first weekend is filling up fast, but there are still plenty of seats for next weekend.
I look forward to seeing you at the theatre(s).
