‘Hands On A Hardbody’ will be performed at History Boy Theatre

JEFFERSON — History Boy Theatre Company in Jefferson will perform “Hands On A Hardbody” at the theater in Jefferson.

“Hands On A Hardbody” features 10 hard-luck Texans trying to gain a new lease on life, and it’s so close they can touch it. Standing days under a fervent sun with nothing more than hope, aspiration, and humor they will fight to keep their hands on a brand-new Nissan hardbody truck in order to win it. In the arduous contest that is “Hands On A Hardbody” only one can drive away with the American dream. Inspired by the true events of the 1997 documentary of the same name, this musical is sure to have you laughing.

Performances will be held at 7 p.m. on June 8, 9, 15 and 16, and at 2 p.m. on June 10 and 17. Tickets are $15 and are on sale by stopping into RVP~1875 in Jefferson, calling 515-370-5369, or by visiting https://historyboytheatreco.ticketleap.com/hands-on-a-hard-body.

About the company. Robby Pedersen started History Boy Theatre Company in the summer of 2009. Wanting the ability to choose his own shows and have artistic freedoms, he created his own regional theater company. Pedersen is striving for high-quality theater and choosing shows that might not normally be done in smaller cities. This year he has built a 120-seat theater into the back warehouse portion of his historical furniture shop and museum for a one-of-a-kind experience.
