MHS Spring Play “Cheaper by the Dozen”

Thursday Apr 27, 2017 7:30 pm, Friday Apr 28, 2017 7:30 pm

Presented by the Minden High School, Cheaper by the Dozen is a hilarious, heartwarming tale of life in a family with twelve  – yes, twelve – children. Based on the real-life story of turn-of the-century efficiency pioneer, Frank Gilbreth, Cheaper by the Dozen chronicles a year in the life of his large and loving family. Frank decides to apply the principles of factory operations to the operations at home and the combination of the two worlds makes for a very funny comedy for all ages.

Tickets available for purchase at the door. Prices: Adults $7 / Students $4
