Witness the epic life story of the legendary Shawnee leader as he struggles to defend his sacred homelands in the Ohio country during the late 1700’s. TECUMSEH! has been labeled as one of the most mesmerizing dramas in the nation.
The huge, outdoor stages of the Sugarloaf Mountain Amphitheatre afford the audience a unique viewing experience. Sit beneath the stars as sheer spectacle surrounds you with a herd of galloping horses, live military cannon in action, and the most dazzling battle sequences offered on the American stage.
Often emulated within the outdoor drama industry, TECUMSEH! continues to set the standard for innovative production techniques. Over 100 people are involved each summer in bringing this exciting drama to life. The sights and sounds of natural elements serve to heighten this one-of-a-kind theatrical experience.
TECUMSEH!’s reputation for artistic excellence in performance, staging and design has garnered international acclaim. Quality production elements such as the play’s hauntingly beautiful native American Music Score – (recorded exclusively by The London Symphony Orchestra) – and its narration sequences recorded by Oscar Nominated Native American Actor Graham Greene continue to thrill audience members of all ages.
This professionally produced outdoor drama was written by seven-time Pulitzer Prize nominee and Emmy recipient, Allan W. Eckert, nationally known for his buckskin bestsellers…The Winning of America Series. The script has been acclaimed as the best of its kind within the outdoor drama industry.
