This outdoor show depicts life around the time of Daniel Boone and is performed in the evening by a great group of actors mostly from the East Coast. We were there on an August evening and it got quite cool so bring a sweater or blanket. You can rent a chair cushion for your chair for 50 cents (worth it). A few of the younger children were upset when some of the actors got "shot" so you may want to leave them home. It was educational and entertaining and if you eat dinner at the Dan'l Boone Inn you can get a discounted ticket ($5 off). You can also get a combo ticket and eat dinner from the Inn right there at the amphitheatre. If you're looking for great good go someplace else.
