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.

We were worried about attending an outdoor drama, so we ordered the Rain money-back guarantee tickets. Fortunately, we had good weather. The show was wonderful . . . worth the 90-minute drive. The actors did a great job. My only complaint was with the sound...More

During our stay in Cherokee, we attended the outdoor drama of Into these hills that details the life and hardship the Cherokee people endured before, during and after the Trail of Tears. Very informative and well done.

Not worth the money, but not bad. Repeated a lot of info from the museum and around town, good info, just repeated. Not culturally accurate actors. That was distracting - as was the obviously fake long black braided wigs they wore. Dance was ok, but...More

I've worked in Cherokee for nearly 3 years and this is the first time I've been able to attend this event. The lines were manageable, the weather held out too, plus we were able to feel a little breeze in the event arena. The story...More

This was a fun and educational play. It is outdoors so be prepared with a jacket. Grab the small step stool on the way to your seat. The seats are up a little high and your legs dangle without the step stool.

I would take a cushion so you can be more comfortable because the seats are hard but the middle section is the best view for the show and I really enjoyed it.
