“Liberty! The Saga of Sycamore Shoals” enjoyed a star-spangled opening season so far, free of schedule changes from inclement weather.
“Liberty! has been going really well,” said Sycamore Shoals Park Manager Jennifer Bauer. “Attendance has been wonderful.”
Bauer said the weather has been a “huge blessing” for the outdoor drama, held at the recreated Fort Watauga at Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park. While much of Carter County battled heavy rainfall last week, the storms passed around the park during the time of the drama.
“We haven’t had to cancel any part of the drama,” she said. “Last year, there was heavy rain the first week of the drama and it did affect the schedule of some of the performances.”
