    Insecurities rise to the front in comedic ways in Skin Deep, which Derby Dinner Playhouse open on Thursday following previews tonight and tomorrow. 

    Skin Deep will take place each day except Mondays from Jan. 6-Feb. 15. Evening shows will happen at 7:45 p.m. with buffet and doors opening at 6 p.m. Sunday matinee shows will go on at 1:30 p.m. with buffet and doors opening at 11:45 a.m. Also, Wednesday matinee shows are to occur at 1 p.m. with buffet and doors opening at 11:45 a.m. All performances are to happen at Derby Dinner Playhouse, located at 525 Marriott Drive in Clarksville, IN.

    Tickets for each show range from $36-$45 per person, depending on the day of attendance. All tickets can be purchased at the Derby Dinner box office, the Derby Dinner website, or by calling Derby Dinner at 812-288-8281. 

    Skin Deep is a romantic comedy focusing on the insecurities people face in the pursuit of love. Maureen, a large and lovable single, goes on a blind date with Joe, a sweet but awkward person. During the date, Maureen tends to use jokes to hide her insecurities while Joe simply says everything that he thinks.

    Meanwhile, Maureen's sister Sheila, who helped set up Maureen and Joe on their date, has issues at home with her husband Squire. Believing that Squire might have had feelings for Maureen in the not-too-distant past, Sheila endures endless cosmetic surgeries in order to keep Squire's eyes focused on her. 

    Jon Lonoff created Skin Deep, which Bekki Jo Schneider directed for Derby Dinner Playhouse. The cast feature Elizabeth Loos as Maureen, Janet Essenpreis as Sheila, Brian Bowman as Squire, and Paul Kerr as Joe. 

    As is tradition with the mainstage Derby Dinner productions, The Footnotes will perform before most Skin Deep productions. 

    More information on Skin Deep can be found at the Derby Dinner Playhouse website.
