HISTORIC TALLASSEE, ALABAMA
| Alabama History
Tecumseh At Tuckabatchee is an engaging full-scale theatrical production that takes audiences back in time to Tecumseh's arrival and great speech to the Creek Council at Tuckabatchee.
Audiences will experience the unique culture, traditions and dances of the Muscogee, as well as, what life was like during this great time of uncertainty for both, the Muscogee and the early settlers and traders in 1800's Alabama.
|- Performance time: 1 hour 45 minutes. Intermission: 15 minutes.
- Our performance takes place outdoors. Dress comfortably and pack appropriate jackets and sweaters for October temperatures and weather changes.
- Audience members should bring their own comfortable folding chairs and blankets. Off-loading chairs and passengers at the front gate is allowed before you park.
- Handicapped parking available near the entrance.
- Blanket space is available around the perimeter of the stage (great viewing location for well-behaved kids!).
- Sodas, water and popcorn available.
- No ice coolers, alcohol or smoking allowed.
Special note: Out of respect for Muskogee traditions shared during this production, as well as, courtesy to the actors and all audience members, no unauthorized photography or recording of any kind is permitted during the performance. After the show, the cast will "meet & greet" and photo requests may be made at that time.
