One subject I have felt has been over looked in our schools that we need to know is History. But is History was presented to each citizen like this we all would take interest in learning about our past. The tragic story of the Trail of tears is Amazingly told through Sight, Sound, Music , Dance and Words. The Production... More

Very nice show. The outdoor theater, performances, costumes, and story were all wonderful. Our grandson said it was "Awesome". Would recommend it for anyone who loves history and would like to learn about another culture. Made me very sad for the treatment of the Cherokees.

The theater is in a beautiful setting, and the show does a great job of communicating the history of the Cherokee. Everyone should see it at least once. Combined with a visit to the Cherokee village, it makes a fun and educational experience.

The setting of the outdoor theatre and the play was beautiful. Very educational and entertaining. The traditional dress and the use of the stage area were awesome. My grandkids enjoyed it as much as the adults. Would definitely recommend this play if you've never seen it.

We went to the season finale. The performance by the actors/actress was wonderful. The telling of the story was excellent. The only thing I thought was odd was one of the dances. It was done to a bluegrass song and did not think that was from the native American culture so that puzzled me whether this was accurate to history.... More

I paid $86.00 for my husband and 2 grandchildren and was disappointed that we were not given rain checks. I took my children when they were young to the show and my older 2 grandchildren a few years ago and... More

If you have never been told the story of the "Trail of Tears" this is a must see. The acting is very good and the play most informative. You will come away with a much better understand of the sacrifices that the Cherokee nation was forced to make in order to perserve their own lives and the life of such... More
