11.8 Dramatic performance and field trips
Provided by The North Carolina Humanities Council.
- Unto These Hills – Outdoor Drama
- This outdoor drama about Cherokee history has been running for nearly sixty years and has recently been revised with a new script, costumes, and choreography in an effort to make the show more authentic and to involve more Cherokee in the production. You can view a documentary about it online from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.
- This performance may provide an excellent opportunity for out-of-class activities, or for your own professional development. The site has a website that provides useful background information about the play as well as details on tickets and schedules for upcoming performances.
- Discover North Carolina!
