Someone will win a new truck… and a new lease on life…
With a beautiful score, featuring music by Grammy-nominated recording artist Trey Anastasio and Amanda Green,  and a touching book by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright (I am My Own Wife), Hands on a Hardbody strikes a fresh note for American Musical Theatre and for Park Playhouse. Ten people place their hands on a brand new pickup truck. The last one to hold on, wins. Sounds crazy, but this exciting new musical is based on real life! Hands on a Hardbody is based on the award-winning documentary of the same name. This moving and exhilarating new musical is sure to delight audiences in July, 2014 in Washington Park!

Hands on a Hardbody is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.

Hats off to our 2014 sponsors!
