Every family has challenges, right? What if you’re one of twelve children whose father often jokes, “You know, they come cheaper by the dozen! ” What if he’s also a pioneer of industrial efficiency and thinks that he can run the family like his factories. The results are terribly embarrassing, funny and–it must be admitted–extremely effective! Help us bring this wonderfully poignant and touching story to life on the stage of Old School Theatre.
Auditions will be held on July 11 & 12 at 6:30 p.m. at Old School Theatre (1220 School Street, Spring Hill). No preparation necessary as everyone will be reading from the script. Old School Theatre board president Laura Holderman will be directing.
Callbacks will be on July 13 at 10:00 a.m.
Old School Theatre’s mission is to provide excellence in entertainment and education in the theater arts to the family community of the Spring Hill area. www.oldschooltheatre.org
