An excellent production with a strong cast and a great set. The history of the Cherokee's trials was beautifully depicted and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The amphitheatre was the perfect venue and it's hard to imagine a poor view wherever you sit. Highly recommended.

Would highly recommend this outdoor drama to both adults and children. Poignant potrayal of the history of the Cherokee Indians. A must see. The concessions are over priced so have dinner before the show.

Great amphitheater. Friendly people. The play is moving and an authentic piece of American history. The play moves right along and the Eagle Dance is inspiring and spiritual. Worth going to see.

The play has changed. It use to have the flute players and more dancing. It was good, but kind of disappointing as to what I expected.

Five of us went to see the play/reenactment. We all thought the play was fantastic. A word of advise, we went to the museum and did the village tour before the play; we learned a lot about the Indian Removal Act, and a lot of the characters that had important parts during that time in history. This truly was a... More

We made a special trip to Cherokee to see this outdoor drama and came away fully satisfied. This production was very professional and the outdoor setting made for a perfect evening. Good use of Native actors in this production and it was easy to feel their passion and pride in telling this story. The seats were comfortable, but be sure... More

Enjoyed a beautiful summer evening learning about the Cherokee Indians at the "Unto These Hills" outdoor drama. The theater is in a relaxing setting and the play was educational and entertaining. The sound in the outdoor theater was excellent and the actors were well trained. Be sure to get one of the free foot stools that are available at the... More

We took our grandchildren to Unto these Hills and they really enjoyed it. They are 14 and 10.I did notice young children around us being very fidgety during the performance so I would not reccommend for younger children. The show was very well done. We waited to buy our tickets right before showtime at the Indian museum.It was calling for... More

Drama has been redone in the last few years. More accurate and better use of Native actors, but it has a way to go to be great theater. Interesting aspects of story should be added to the script -- like the duel between 2 Congressmen that led to the body's failure to act on Cherokee request. While the occasional riffle... More
