The actors were difficult to understand. They seemed to be attempting some fake accent. There was too much loud gunfire. The actors seemed to be shrieking and speech was difficult. I had seen this before and loved it. I was excited to go back but after this time, I wouldn't bother going back again.

My children and I were there on July, 2014. I have heard of the drama for many years on how wonderful it was. You did not let me down! You brought the history of the Cherokee to life, some of the history I knew about but other parts were new to me. My children throughly enjoyed it also. Will visit... More

We were at the drama on closing night. It was very entertaining and the actors were wonderful The seats are comfortable, and they provided small footstools to make you even more comfortable. I would advise anyone who goes to Cherokee to see this drama. It's excellent.

It was great just make sure you bring a cushion..! Not for young children, history lessons is given through acting.

It is good but as I said not as good as the original drama. I did enjoy it and it is worth seeing because the story line is something everyone should see in my opinion. I was disappointed the Indian village closed at 5.... we drove over from Gatlinburg only to find out it was closed. I would think it... More

Very good; glad I saw it. Saw the program many decades ago and was happy to have the opportunity to see it in my 60s. Seats were good, could see and hear all the action. w

The show is great, especially it's my first time. The man sat next to me had seen it several times and keep coming back for more. The story basically repeats what I have learned at the museum, but nice to see it enacted. Wish it has more tribal songs and dances. Remember to grab a stepping stool on the way... More

The story has been shown on this stage for 64 years this season. Took my son to see it this year, have been myself several times. Only negative is food & beverage.... bring your own! They could make some money from concessions if they simply expanded the limited stand. Also, be prepared to hike back to your car when the... More

This is my 4th visit and will have more in the future. The play is truly an adventure into American history.

On our vacation we decided to see this show after visiting the area. The show wad surprisingly good, touching, a little sad, and educational. My 11 & 9 yr old boys are still talking about the trail of tears portion days later. Well done. Would recommend as part of your trip to this area.
