  • Cradle of Forestry Presents

    The outdoor drama, "The Legend of Tommy Hodges," will be presented on Fri, Oct. 21 and Sat, Oct. 22 at 6:30 p.m., 7:45 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.

    During the outdoor performance, audiences travel to 1906 to hear about the legendary Tommy Hodges, a student of the Biltmore Forest School with a reputation for mischief who mysteriously disappeared. 

    This is the 20th year the Cradle has offered the play, with each year presenting a different twist. The show is 1 mile long - the audience walks 1 mile to see the entire play. Audience members should dress warmly, wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a flashlight.

    Hot cider & cookies will be served after each show. Ponchos & other raingear are welcome if weather is showery, but please leave umbrellas at home. Call (828) 877-3130 if weather is severe as the show may be cancelled. The Cradle of Forestry is located on Hwy. 276 in the Pisgah National Forest near Brevard, NC.
