Hands on a Hardbody
Based on a true story and infused with a "bluesy country-rock vibe," this hilarious musical follows 10 down-on-their-luck Texans; each desperate for a new lease on life. Armed with nothing but hope, humor and ambition, they're determined to endure four sleepless days in the Texas heat for a chance to win a brand-new Nissan hardbody truck. All they have to do is fight to keep at least one hand on the truck and they will drive away with their American Dream. Last one standing wins!
