Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area kicks off its 39th July season of “Liberty! The Saga of Sycamore Shoals”

This year, “Liberty! The Saga of Sycamore Shoals,” Tennessee’s Official Outdoor Drama, will be hosting its 39th year of performances in the Fort Watauga amphitheater at Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area in Elizabethton!                         

We would love to have you and your families join us as cast members for our performances this July!  

You will have the opportunity to audition for speaking parts in the “Gathering Room” in the Sycamore Shoals Visitors Center.   When you arrive, you will be given a short section of last year’s script to read for your audition, so you won’t need to worry about preparing something in advance.

We will also be taking signups for cast members interested in participating in non-speaking roles.    If you do not have the appropriate clothing, Sycamore Shoals will loan it to you for the month of July!

“Liberty!” shares the incredible stories of the events that took place at Sycamore Shoals, during the late 18th century, as settlers began moving into this area and beginning new lives.    Throughout the intriguing scenes in the drama, our guests have the opportunity to not only discover events of historic importance, but also experience the traditions of the times.

These stories are your stories!   We hope you will consider becoming a part of our “Liberty” family this year at Sycamore Shoals!

“Liberty!” will be performed the last 3 weekends in July, Thursday through Saturday.   Each show begins at 7:30 pm.
