The legendary story returns outdoors to its original location.
July 11 - 13, 8 p.m.
The outdoor drama ‘Strike at the Wind!’ is returning to its roots–where it began more than 40 years ago.
The beloved play has been staged the last two years at Givens Performing Arts Center. This summer, audiences will enjoy ‘Strike at the Wind!’ under the stars at the historic Adolph Dial Amphitheater on the Lumbee Tribe Cultural Center.
‘Strike the Wind!’ tells the story of the Lowrie War in 1865. It chronicles the life of Henry Berry Lowrie who led a band of men in a seven-year battle against those he believed killed his father and brother.
‘Strike at the Wind!’ was first performed in 1976 at the Dial Amphitheater overlooking the scenic Country Club Lake. It continued for 20 seasons, ending in 1996. The play returned in 1999 and 2007, and was revived again in 2017 thanks to the collaborative efforts of UNC Pembroke and the Lumbee Tribe.
The play will feature live musical performances by local artists of the play’s original songs composed by the late Willie French Lowery.
Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased at the Givens Performing Arts Center Box Office by calling 910.521.6361 or online.
