Derby Dinner Playhouse is kicking off their 2017-2018 season with the comedy EMPTY NEST!  We saw this great show last week and had so much fun! 


In Empty Nest, Helene and George Butler’s children have finally left the nest and they are alone together for the first time in thirty years - but not for long!  One by one,  all three of their grown sons come running back home, with their luggage and laundry in hand, after experiencing some trouble out in “the real world”.  The comedy unfolds and the battle for home turf begins as Mom and Dad attempt to push their sons out of the nest again. 


Janet Essenpreis & David Myers are hilarious as the Butlers!  They truly embrace the spirit of exhausted parents who just want time back to themselves!  Bobby Conte, Zachary Burrell,  & Bill Hanna portray their three sons, none of whom can figure out how to grow up completely and make the story even more interesting each with their own comedic presences.


EMPTY NEST is under the direction of Bekki Jo Schneider and was written by Lawrence Roman.


Enjoy this heart-warming comedy as a family finds new relationships and reconnect as adults.  A must-see comedy for every “empty nester”!  As always, tickets include a wonderful meal!


running through July 9, 2017.  For ticket information please call 812-288-8281 or visit www.derbydinner.com
