    Two couples on a weekend getaway can’t seem to get away from each other in Weekend Comedy, which will premiere at the Derby Dinner Playhouse tomorrow.  

    Weekend Comedy performances will take place every day except Mondays from January 11 until February 20.  Evening shows will go on at 7:45 p.m. with buffet opening at 6 p.m.  Sunday matinee shows, meanwhile, will occur at 1:30 p.m. with buffet starting at 11:45 a.m.  Finally, Wednesday matinee shows will start at 1 p.m. with buffet at 11:45 a.m.  

    Tickets for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday evening shows are $39 per person.  Friday evening show tickets are $40, and Saturday evening tickets are $43 per person.  Sunday matinees, meanwhile, are $35, and Wednesday matinees are $34 per person.  Tickets can be purchased online at the Derby Dinner website or by phone at 812-288-8281.  

    All Weekend Comedy performances will occur at the Derby Dinner Playhouse, located at 525 Marriott Drive in Clarksville, IN.  More information on the show can be found at the Derby Dinner Playhouse website.  

    The Derby Dinner production of Weekend Comedy includes two couples, one in their 50s and the other in the 20s, who inadvertently spend a weekend together in the Catskills.  Due to a booking error, the couples have rented the same cabin but decide to share it.  The generation differences become apparent very early, leading to comedic results.

    Weekend Comedy features David Myers as Frank, Janet Essenpreis as Peggy, Brian Bowman as Tony, and Lexie Dorsett as Jill.  Bekki Jo Schneider directed the production. 

    Following Weekend Comedy, Derby Dinner Playhouse will present Jesus Christ Superstar, which will run from February-April.  The children’s theatre, meanwhile, will present Alexander, Who’s Not Not Not Not Not Not Going to Move, also in February.
