Under the glow of summer stars, the Cherokee story comes to life. Performed in our 2,000 seat outdoor amphitheater, Unto These Hills is the family show too large for any screen.

I have had the privilege of seeing many outdoor dramas and would rate this one as one of the best. Even though I saw this during the last week of the season, the actors gave a very spirited and believable performance. I would recommend visiting...More

Really enjoyed play, "Unto These Hills". First rate. Outdoor venue was lovely with seating comfortable and all views great. The only complaint would be the loudness of voices in the play.

There is not a bad seat in this outdoor, stadium-style theater. We recommend you accept a free footstool as the seats are a bit high off the ground. Seats have backs and are comfortable. Rows are wide enough to walk down easily. Concessions and restrooms...More

Have been coming to this show every summer since childhood and passed the tradition on to kids and grandkids. However, we all stopped going about 4 years ago because the "revised" show just wasn't very good. We decided to give it another try when we...More
