You're only as old as you feel, as a father, his daughter, and son-in-law will find out in You're Only Young Twice, which opens at Derby Dinner Playhouse tomorrow.

You're Only Young Twice will take place each day except Mondays from May 21-June 30.  Evening shows will go on at 7:45 p.m. with buffet beginning at 6 p.m.  Sunday matinee shows are at 1:30 p.m. with buffet starting at 11:45 a.m.  Finally, Wednesday matinees will begin at 1 p.m. with buffet starting 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 depend on the day of attendance.  Saturday shows are $44 per person, Friday shows are $41, all other evening shows are $40, Sunday matinees are $36, and Wednesday matinee shows are $35 per person. All tickets can be purchased at the Derby Dinner box office, the Derby Dinner website, or by calling the box office at 812-288-8281.

You're Only Young Twice focuses on a married couple, Sue and Richard, that just seem to find no peace in their home.  The late night parties, loud music, and sleeping until the afternoon happen within their dwelling but not as a result of them or perhaps a teenager.  Instead, it's Sue's father and his Over 60 Club's friends causing the ruckus in their efforts to remember and hold onto youthful exuberance.  

Ron Aldridge created the play, which Bekki Jo Schneider directed.  The cast features Tina Jo Wallace as Sue, Cary Wiger as Richard, J.R. Stuart as Gordon "Brooksie" Brooks, David Myers as Tom, Elizabeth Loos as Julia, Debbie King-Raque as Rose, and Janet Essenpreis as Grace.

During You Only Live Twice's run, Derby Dinner Playhouse will also present the children's theater production of Awesome Allie: First Kid Astronaut.  That production will take place beginning on Saturday.
