The Friends of Tuckabatchee are revising their production of "Tecumseh at Tuckabatchee"

Auditions for Tecumseh play this week

Staff Report

In association with the 200th Anniversary of Alabama’s statehood, the Friends of Tuckabatchee will present a theatrical production this fall. 

“...and One Fire Still Burns: A Native American Story” is a reimagined version of “Tecumseh at Tuckabatchee” that was performed several years ago in Tallassee.  The production is a historic drama about Tecumseh’s visit in the fall of 1811 to the Creek nation at Tuckabatchee.  The play relives his arrival and great speech in which he tried to persuade the Creek nation to join a campaign against the encroaching European society.
