This was a great outdoor play. Very enjoyable. Be sure to wear bug spray. The surrounding cabins were also interesting to explore.

We came by in February when everything was closed. We were able to walk through a bit and see the outside of the cabins and the amphitheater. Hope to return in the summer months to see the drama.

This is a wonderful play showing the life and times of early America. The outdoor venue is spacious and well put together with good viewing of the stage areas from any location. This is a must see at least once in a lifetime. Make sure to check if it is running as it is a seasonal show.

We took off the next morning on the Blue Ridge Parkway, taking in the Cone Mansion, Linville Falls, The Orchard at Alta Pass, and... More

This is a nice local play. Lot of history that I did not know about. Sometimes the outside noises (motorcycles) were a distraction. A little long for me.

We did the living history museum before the play, and I highly recommend that for the kids. My kids (6 and 16) loved the living history museum. My little guy had a hard time following the characters in the play, but he really enjoyed it. I loved it!!
