Happy Father's Day.  Saline Area Players are getting ready for our 40th Anniversary Gala this Saturday, June 22 at 8 PM at Liberty School. Here's our "photo of the day" from our previous shows, a picture of a well-known theater father, Mr. Frank Gilbreth, from the play "Cheaper by the Dozen."   The play was based on a biographical account of his real life's work as an efficiency expert.  In this scene, he shows the kids how to take a bath the most efficiently as possible.
