Penn State’s School of Theatre will present “Hands on a Hardbody” for its next show of the 2019 season. It will be the first to be produced on the Playhouse Theatre stage this semester.

The production is directed by Musical Theatre department head John Simpkins, with music directed by Jennifer Peacock, and choreographed by J. Austin Eyer. The cast features Nick Davis, Laura Guley, and Jack Bowman in leading roles, with many more School of Theatre students rounding out the rest of the cast.
