I have been going to Cherokee since 1972. I can not believe how much has changed, yet how much has stayed the same. This is one of the reasons that this is my favorite vacation spot. I first saw the play about 30 years ago. It was very intense and truthful about the Cherokee experience with the Trail of Tears... More

This drama was our main reason for visiting the area. It is a sad but well performed history of the Cherokee Indian. The venue is very large. The seats are comfortable, metal, wide, stadium seats but take a stool or box as the seats are so high that your feet won't touch the ground. There is a concession stand with... More

Great play that taught my daughter a lot about the Cherokee people and what they went through. Very educational. Theater seats were not the most comfortable but the theater had stools you could get to rest your feet on (unless you were very tall your feet do not touch the ground when sitting). There were lots of bugs and we... More

I've heard many wonderful things about this outdoor drama and have finally been able to get there to see it. Unto These Hills is only performed from June through mid August. I purchased the VIP Dinner Package which included early entry for dinner, greeting with cast members, reserved seating, and a stage tour after the performance as well as admission... More

I have been in these mountains since I was a child but never took the time to see the drama. I regret that I did not do it sooner. I always regret that I was not better informed of who the players were before hand. It was beautifully done and I would recommend it to anyone to has not seen... More

We had come up to spend three days on this side of the park. A good friend called and said she had heard the drama about the Cherokee's early struggles and problems with our government keeping their word. We went over and got tickets for the last performance of the summer. The young ticket sellers said this show was new... More

Unto the Hills play was really an excellent play to see. My children and I loved it! Even through the rain the actors and actresses really put on a real life drama that had all of my family on their toes. Excellent! If you purchase VIP tickets you get to take a tour behind the scenes. :-)

We have lived in the GSMNP area for over 20 yrs and have talked about going to see "Unto These Hills" every summer, but had just never found the time. I'm so glad we finally went! The theater has roomy chair type seating. The preshow is really nice & the main feature play is very well performed. The Eagle Dance... More

Great attention to detail. Costumes are beautiful. Story is moving and especially when you realize that it is history.

We had not been to the play for 20 or more years. It has drastically changed during that time. Some was better and some not so much. It was a nice evening, not crowded, and very easy to enter and leave. I recommend this play to attend at least once. I bave a lot of respect for the Cherokee nation.
