unto these hills 2

CHEROKEE — More than six million people have witnessed the heart-wrenching action and soaring triumph of “Unto These Hills” over the past 70 years, and the legacy lives on in 2021.

The iconic drama — staged in a large, outdoor amphitheater — debuted for the season over Memorial Day weekend and will run through Aug. 14.

The show chronicles the tale of Cherokee life from 1780 to the 21st century. The show includes action-filled fight scenes, reenactments of historical events, grief of Cherokee removal and resilience of the Cherokee people and culture.

Shows are at 7:30 p.m. nightly except Sunday, with select matinee dates ideal for little ones that can’t stay up as late. The matinees are held at 10:30 a.m. on Saturdays from June 26-July 31.

General admission tickets are $28 for adults, $18 for kids ages 6-12 and free for 5 and under. For tickets or more info, click here.
