A scene from Voice In The Wind.

A decade before the premier of Cross and Sword, which eventually became Florida's Official State Play, the state had another big outdoor musical historical drama in operation. Voice In The Wind was produced at the Suncoast Theatre on US 41 in Ruskin, just south of Tampa.

Voice In The Wind ran from mid-March to mid-May in the mid-1950's, and, according to AAA, portrayed "the history of Florida, weaving the music and dance of the Spanish, English, Indians and Negroes into the legends of the area." Today, of course, Voice In The Wind has gone with the wind.
