Auditions for the community theater production of Cheaper by the Dozen, to be staged in March, will be held at the Pearl Theater from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, January 3 and from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, January 4.

Actors of all ages are needed, including children, teens and adults, and all are invited to one or both sessions.

Based on a true story, Cheaper by the Dozen tells the story of the Gilbreth family. Their inventor father, who is well-known for bringing better efficiency to factories, keeps his family of twelve children running just as efficiently.

Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt starred in the 2003 movie.

Rehearsals will be each Monday and Thursday evening from January 6 to March 11 under the direction of Kelly Collett. Closer to the performances, some Saturday rehearsals are anticipated.

Performances will take place at the Pearl Theater, 7160 Ash Street, Bonners Ferry, at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, March 12-13, and at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 14.

Those cast will be expected to be able to commit to the rehearsal schedule. To learn more, call Kelly at (208) 230-0252.
