After accidentally buying (non-refundable) tickets to "Trumpet in the Land," which I didn't want to see, I was able to see "Horn in the West" ("Trumpet," Horn; "in the Land," "in the West") with my daughter and her husband. Before the show, we wandered through the Hickory Ridge Living History Museum, where we observed first-person interpreters and craftspeople. The show... More

Don't miss the opportunity to see this wonderful play about Daniel Boone in different parts of his life. The summer weather is wonderful and you will learn some history.

We enjoyed this historical performance in the Daniel Boone Theatre. Seating was comfortable and centrally located for good viewing. Performers were dressed in beautiful costumes which made the play more believable for the period. A great buy.

Very entertaining and the story interesting. The seating is hard on the butt, bring a pillow. It seemed a bit long, especially having to sit on hard chairs.

My husband and I went to see this production and we enjoyed it a lot. I have always wanted to see one of NC's outdoor historical dramas. I am glad we got to see this one. The action and costumes were enjoyable. We rented a seat cushion but the seating was still somewhat uncomfortable. After we saw the play I... More

We enjoyed the show but the acoustics in the back were not good enough to allow us to hear the actors. We moved forward and it was clear. Overall definitely worth doing.

Great play. A wonderful outside theater. Our young grandsons really had fun, and even met with the actors after the performance.

Horn in the West is a fantastic way to spend your evening. It is an excellent production and a reminder of our heritage. The talent is top notch and it is evident that those involved are inspired by the history making events that the show is about. It is fantastic for all ages and so entertaining!! I will return!!

This is really a quality production. I have been several times and I am always pleased. The acter's are friendly and very talented. Please don't miss The Horn in the West if you visit the High Country. Also please remember this IS an outdoor production and it can get chilly even in the summer, dress warm!
