My wife and two grandkids went to see this awesome show which is a reenactment about the trail of tears. We all thought the play was fantastic and the grandkids loved it. If you want to be up on the story go to the museum and do the tour before the play; we learned a lot about the Indian Removal... More

Knew my history buff husband might enjoy - I'd seen Unto These Hills as a child while at summer camp and was interested in revisiting. Still a great show, they've just gotten way too PC for my taste - and it's pretty obvious. Wish we could tell things as they were or are without worrying about who might be offended!... More

It is a family experience. Very educational and entertaining. I got into every aspect of the performance that I cried. This visit was April last year

Purchased my tickets on line. It happens it was the last performance for the summer, August 20th. My tickets were VIP which allowed us to go to our seats 30 minutes early. This also allowed us restroom access earlier and we also had a back stage tour. We were given a "goodie" bag with water, mug and popcorn. A nice... More

An excellent production with a strong cast and a great set. The history of the Cherokee's trials was beautifully depicted and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The amphitheatre was the perfect venue and it's hard to imagine a poor view wherever you sit. Highly recommended.

Would highly recommend this outdoor drama to both adults and children. Poignant potrayal of the history of the Cherokee Indians. A must see. The concessions are over priced so have dinner before the show.

Great amphitheater. Friendly people. The play is moving and an authentic piece of American history. The play moves right along and the Eagle Dance is inspiring and spiritual. Worth going to see.
