The play has been updated since I first saw it in the 1950's and again in the 1970's. The costumes are great, narration is excellent and the kids will love the battles. You can buy reserve seats but can see well from anyplace in the theater. Plan on a pretty good walk from the parking lot.

Drama was very good but we were expecting more Native American culture and songs. After seeing Techumseh in Ohio this was lacking. Don't get me wrong it was a good play, the actors did well, the setting good, could have used some horses etc. to set the scene. It's just after seeing Techumseh and comparing the 2 this comes in...

This is a good performance. Since we have seen other out door dramas (Tecumseh) Unto these hills was loaded with dialogue. Not as much action as Tecumseh, but its done very well.

Saw this play back in the 60's as a child and remembers some but seeing it again was a real treat! It depicts the trials and struggles of the Cherokee Indians in the 1800's trying to survive war and aggression of the white man. It's very well written and the actors are very good. It's on the side of the... More

The play tells the story of the local Indians and is a very good evening activity. I was the play years ago, and there were more adults in it then. This year, there seemed to be more youth and children playing the parts.

I have lived in East Tn and traveled to Cherokee many times as a child but never watched the show. We decided to take a mini vacation to Cherokee and decided to see the show. We were not disappointed. The amphitheater is beautiful! The show was wonderful and very well done. The only "bad" thing was that we had our... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this performance. Even the rain could not dampen our enjoyment. The actors were great and the theatre is very nice.

This is a great show and a definite must do if you are in Cherokee and are interested in the history of this tribe. By no means is this a Hollywood type production and the history is not 100% accurate but this show does provide a great story of the Cherokee. We went with our young children ages 6-9 and... More

This play relates the story of the plight of the Cherokee Indian in Western N. C. The arena is quite nice with plenty of room and many seats. Employees were friendly and helpful. We had the VIP ticket and took the tour of the back stage which was interesting and the young fellow that guided the tour was very knowledgeable... More
