'SKIN DEEP'
Pittsfield, 8 p.m.
Town Players of Pittsfield continues its 94th season with a production of Jon Lonoff's comedy "Skin Deep," directed by Kevin Paul Wixsom.

She relies on sharp wit and wisecracks to cover her feelings and he can't contain his eagerness which leaves him clumsy of manners and blunt in speech. But, they're perfect for each other, even if they won't admit it. The performances will be at the Whitney Center for the Arts, 42 Wendell Ave. Tickets are $15 with discounts available for seniors, students, groups of 10 or more and members of Town Players. For reservations, call 413-443-9279.

There will be one performance only on the ’62 Center’s MainStage, located at 1000 Main Street, in Williamstown. Tickets are $10/$3 students.
