"You're Only Young Twice"

The Derby Dinner Playhouse

By: Angela Ash


"You're Only Young Twice" will be playing at the Derby Dinner Playhouse through June 30th. Get your tickets early, because this show is one that you will definitely not want to miss! 

Sometimes we just want to get out, relax, and completely forget any cares or worries that we may have.  Thankfully, that feat is easy to accomplish this season at the Derby Dinner Playhouse! This story of an aging widower, who moves in with his daughter and her husband, is heartwarming, endearing, and absolutely hilarious. "Brooksie" is in no way ready for the rocking chair, but stays out late, riding his motorcycle and partying with his friends.

The production, as always, is wonderfully cast, with J.R. Stuart as the lovable Brooksie, and Tina Jo Wallace and Cary Wiger as Sue and Richard, the daughter and son-in-law. The cast is rounded out by Brooksie's friends headed for matrimony, David Myers and Elizabeth Loos... two Derby Dinner favorites!  The jokes and one-liners keep the audience laughing, while the sentiment behind the story drive home the message that we are only as young as we feel, making this a performance to be enjoyed by any generation.

The Derby Dinner Playhouse provides a beautiful set for this production, all performed in Sue and Richard's home.

The Derby Dinner Playhouse is located in Clarksville, Indiana... right over the bridge from Louisville, Kentucky. It is a theater in the round, and has been in operation since 1974, making it one of the oldest and largest continuously operating theatres in the country!

You will receive a top notch production for your ticket price, along with a mouth-watering meal, served buffet style, boasting favorites like fried chicken, mouth-watering pasta selections, and a meat carving station. Some of the best desserts around are also offered, like the hummingbird cake or the brownie sundae!
