History on the Summertime Road IV: "Tecumseh!"...The Ultimate Outdoor Drama Experience - Chillicothe, Ohio
Saturday we joined 1500 other viewers in a packed house closing night for Tecumseh!, the "story of the legendary Shawnee leader as he struggles to defend his sacred homelands in the Ohio country during the late 1700's." The cast is now on their way home to whichever university they hail from, the stage is battened down for winter, and you will have to wait til next year to take in this or most any of the outdoor dramas.

Is there an outdoor drama near you? Ninety nine are held in thirty-six states, according to the Institute for Outdoor Drama. And, should you visit Tecumseh! next summer, you can camp on the backside of Sugarloaf Mountain - about a half mile away. A splendid evening.
