The Ocala Civic Theatre has announced that this week’s performances of its country-pop musical, ‘Hands on a Hardbody,’ have been canceled due to illness.
In a social media post, the theater stated that its box office staff is contacting all those who were affected by the cancellations to make other arrangements.
Next week’s performances of the musical are scheduled to continue as planned on the following dates:
- Thursday, September 15 at 7:30 p.m. (American Sign Language Performance – contact the box office to reserve an ASL area if needed).
- Friday, September 16 at 7:30 p.m.
- Saturday, September 17 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, September 18 at 2 p.m.
‘Hands on a Hardbody,’ which is inspired by the acclaimed 1997 documentary of the same name, tells the story of a Nissan dealership in Texas that sponsors a contest to win a free, brand-new pickup truck.
Ten contestants are all down on their luck, but they are each up for the challenge of winning the free vehicle. All they have to do is keep at least one hand on the truck at all times during the contest, and the last contestant standing will be declared the winner.
All shows will be performed at the Ocala Civic Theatre, which is located at 4337 E Silver Springs Boulevard. Tickets cost $30 for adults (ages 19 and older) and $15 for ages 18 and younger.
While tickets are still available for the remaining shows, Ocala Civic Theatre expects the venue to fill up quickly as this week’s audiences exchange tickets for the new performances.
