This performance transports the audience to a time in the 1800's when man's inhumanity to man is matched only by the indomitable spirit of the Cherokee people. The Trail of Tears is the moving focus of this production and takes you through the joys of Cherokee people to the tragedy of the removal of a people from their homeland. Acting,... More

Good show! Enjoyed the pre-show, too. Performers did a great job and the storyline was easy to follow. Sit on the lower right side if you can to see all the set changes easily (not too many though like at the Lost Colony production on the coast). The only things I will say that's not positive is the popcorn was... More

Wonderful show with great cast but go in with the knowledge it is nothing like the original version. It now is much more "authentic" but no longer retains the theatrical drama that hooked us and had us crying and on the edge of our seats cheering in the 1990's. Very educational in a school/documentary manner. Important in the story it... More

We visited this attraction for the benefit of our granddaughter who had never seen it. It was well done and parking is provided. In addition, the seats are too high above the ground for short people feet to reach the ground. However, the company that operates the play provided adequate step stools on which we could place our feet, which... More

Outstanding play. Arrive early and enjoy the pre show. Bring a jacket or blanket you are sitting outside on the side of a mountain, when the sun goes down it gets cool. When you go into the theater, as you walk in take a moment and see the eternal flame. Before you go down the stairs, you will see plastic... More

This is a story everyone should see. I can't say I liked it. Not because it wasn't good, but because of the subject matter. It was well done, and educational. It is a must-do in Cherokee.

Another item off the old bucket list! In celebration of her birthday, my wife and I attended this play on Thursday, July 23rd, 2015. We thoroughly enjoyed the program and the cast was professional. We were lucky the rains held off for the entire show as they ran out of the plastic rain gear but I did have my umbrella... More

Easy to make reservations online. The show is extremely professional in a large open air arena. The show flows smoothly from Act to Act. Pay attention though. You're seeing some of the most monumental moments in the history of the Cherokee nation! Witnessing the glory, sacrifice, and steadfastness of the people is a profound experience. It can only be experienced... More

We absolutely loved this show! It rained a little but the show went on and it did not diminish how much we enjoyed it. Beautiful story! The seats were comfortable and there were affordable refreshments available. We will definitely go back again and recommend this to all.

Excellent telling of Cherokee history. Skilled actors and clear narration throughout. Venue is an open-air amphitheater which had seating made comfortable by providing foot stools. Website describes parking in town with a shuttle to the theater, but that is no longer offered. There is parking at the venue for handicapped visitors, and parking for others a couple hundred yards up... More
