“Horn in the West,” one of the nation’s longest running outdoor dramas, is celebrating its 60th anniversary this summer.
The narrative follows the hopes of intrepid frontier explorers, ordinary Piedmont settlers backed into a corner by British policies, and the struggle to achieve cross-cultural understanding between Cherokee and pioneer.
“Horn in the West” is offering “County Nights” throughout its season for residents of select counties to attend with discounted rates for a weekend run of shows. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the counties of Cabarrus, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Rowan and Union are eligible for $8 tickets.
The play takes place in Boone, on the grounds of Daniel Boone Park. Attached to the Park are gardens and a living history museum. Also within walking distance are many local restaurants, a playground, and walking trails. It is located near the crossroads of U.S. 421, U.S. 321 and N.C. 105.
Horn is open weekly from Tuesday to Sunday, with shows at 8 p.m. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, catered dinners are offered.
Dinners are served at 6:30 p.m. by reservation only. Reservations can be made at www.horninthewest.com or by calling 828-264-2120.
