Cheaper by the Dozen comes to the Amelia Musical Playhouse

This heartwarming tale of "America's best-loved family" will crowd the stage with laughter. It is based on a real-life family, the Gilbreths.

The father, Frank Gilbreth, was a pioneer in the the field of motion study. He was the original "efficiency expert" and worked all over the world.  Some of his better know clients included Johnson & Johnson, Macy's and the United States Army.

He and his wife Lillian were married in 1904, and raised twelve children, applying the same time and motion studies he had developed for industry to efficiently raise a house full of children. The play shows a slice of life in the Gilbreth household, as Frank applies motion and time studies to common everyday tasks like getting dressed and taking a bath.

 The production includes 17 talented youg actors and an experienced adult cast of 5.  You will see many familiar faces and many who are making their stage debut at AMP.  The domestic crises the family faces include adopting a dog, a girl's first date, and a vindictive school official who attempts to derail the academic success of the children.  

Tickets available through or by calling the box office at 904-277-3455.  Tickets are $10 for students and $15 for adults.  Show dates are March 21,22,23 at 7:30 pm , and March 24 at 2:30 pm.  Amelia Musical playhouse is located at 1955 Island Walkway in Fernandina Beach.
