Dracula is coming. | Cherokee, NC

How will Cherokee affect you?

Dracula is coming.

Friday, October 1 from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm

Hide the kids, grab the crucifixes, and wear something with a very high neck. See this hair-raising performance on select evenings throughout October.
 

The Cherokee Historical Association, in partnership with the Havoc Movement Company, is proud to present “Dracula: The Failings of Men,” happening on select evenings throughout the month of October. Based on the terrifying classic by Bram Stoker, this action-horror production will have you grabbing for the garlic cloves and hiding behind your blanket. It’s so frightening, kids under 12 are not recommended!

The tale launches you back in time to London circa 1897, when a ghost ship carrying a dark and ancient evil washes ashore. The only passenger appears to have been a shrouded figure—one with a distinctive taste for blood. Join Ada Van Helsing as she pursues something that’s part-myth, part-legend, and fully evil.

Get your tickets here! Only 199 seats are available per show!

“Unto These Hills”

Monday, June 27 from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Bring a blanket and an appetite for heart-pounding drama.

You can feel a slight chill run up your spine; but not from the mountain winds shifting their direction in anticipation of the coming dusk. It is from your anticipation of the coming drama. Unto These Hills drama is the tragic and triumphant story of the Cherokee that traces back to the years before the heartbreak of the Trail of Tears to the present day. Millions of people have witnessed America’s most powerful drama, which rewrites the Cherokee’s place in the world. A place based on traditional Cherokee values and modern sensibilities.


Cherokee Bonfire

Wednesday, June 1 from 7:00 pm to Monday, October 31 at 9:00 pm

Amazing tales as told by the Cherokee storytellers themselves.

Imagine you’re gathered around a roaring bonfire, the occasional spark shooting high into the night sky, as a strong but gentle voice begins a story you’ve never heard. As the drama builds, you’re nearly breathless, your own heartbeat matching the occasional beat of the hand drum the storyteller uses. Drawing from a rich oral tradition dating back millennia, the Cherokee Bonfire runs throughout the tourism season, and is an enchanting way to interact with the rich details of the Cherokee people and their stories. Get your room reserved in Cherokee, grab a blanket and someone close to you, and enjoy a cultural experience only Cherokee can offer.

The Bonfire stories crackles from 7:00–9:00 p.m. on the following dates at Oconaluftee Islands Park, on Tsali Blvd.:

May 28-30 and then Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, June 1–October 31, 2022.
