Auditions for Cheaper by the Dozen will be held at The Flint Community Players Theater on February 2nd and 3rd from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

This coming of age real life story, set in the 1920’s, shows the struggles of growing up with a father that is a well-known efficiency expert, and the funny heart-warming antics that ensue when he uses his time-saving methods on his 12 children.

Directed by Tammy Robison, this family-friendly play has roles available for ages 7 to 70. Performances will run two weekends starting March 19th.  The audition will consist of a cold reading from the script.  Please come to auditions prepared with any conflicts you may have with our rehearsal schedule of Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings, and M-W of Tech week.

Questions may be directed to Tammy Robison at
