At The Pyrle Theater - Greensboro


White Lightning

By Elyzabeth Gregory Wilder

Race down red dirt roads through an Alabama night of fast cars and moonshine. A young veteran with a checkered past and ’39 Ford makes a name for himself outrunning the law. But love and NASCAR show him another road. Strap in, put the pedal to the metal and head straight into adventure and romance.

From the Artistic Director:
My first car only had an AM radio and the country music sometimes gave way to a NASCAR race. I loved when my rides were filled with exploits of some of the greatest drivers in history.  Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt and Richard Childress thrilled me with their driving and daring.  NASCAR, with its roots in moonshine running, is so much a part of our region and telling its story is a real representation of A Southern Voice, one of our core values, brought to life on stage.
