BELLS ON THEIR TOES
Adapted by William Roos
Based on the book by Frank Gilbreth and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey
This delightful classic comedy is the sequel to CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN, an audience favorite when presented by the Schoolhouse Players in 2009. The sequel follows the tale of the real-life Kilbreth family and all the mix-ups that happen when Mother has to go to Europe on business for six weeks. What could possibly go wrong with the children trying to run the house along with a handyman who cooks "lamb rangoon" and diagnoses chicken pox as the hives? It's all good-hearted fun ... and appropriate for audiences of all ages.

“Dear God. How did you know you were God?”
“Dear God, Thank you for the baby brother, but what I prayed for was a puppy.
“Dear God. How come you did all the miracles in the old days and you don’t do any now?”
Inspired by the international bestseller of the same name, Children's Letters To God is a musical that follows the lives of five young friends as they voice beliefs, desires, questions and doubts common to all people but most disarmingly expressed by children. This entertaining family-oriented show carries a universal message which crosses the boundaries of age, geography, and religion.
