HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US!
" I just went to see the Last of the Mohicans Outdoor drama this past weekend with my 16-year old niece.  We both loved it!  The acting and overall production were wonderful.  Horses, fire, and waterfalls- on a moonlit evening in the great Adirondacks! whether you're a local or vacationing from out of town with your family- if you enjoy outdoor events I highly recommend that you make plans to see The Last of the Mohicans outdoor drama at the Wild West Ranch.

"It (LOMOD) is a real service and gift to the community and gives people not only a piece of history and poignancy re: what was done to the Native American population and that loss.... but a way to know the book if they haven't or are not going to read it."
Lisa A, Diamond Point, NY, 2011


"We enjoyed the two hours and for the price we felt it was the best value in Lake George Summer Entertainment!"

" I'm so impressed that your company was able

understandable and rewarding presentation!
The staging was impressive, the lighting was superb,
and the whole production was top-notch!
 
The LOMOD is an ambitious undertaking,

ABOUT OUR UNIQUE HISTORICAL OUTDOOR DRAMA PRODUCTION:   This award-winning theatrical production is a brand new, live adaptation based on the timeless novel by famed New York author James Fenimore Cooper.

The Lake George and Lake Champlain areas of upstate New York were the epicenter of a military chess game in the 1750's. Two major superpowers, France and Britain were fighting for control of these important strategic waterways, the natural riches of the land and control of the Native peoples.

In 1757, specific events unfolded around Fort William Henry (which has been reconstructed into a museum open to the public). Fort William Henry lies strategically at the southern end of the majestic 32-mile long Lake George and surrounded by the Adirondack Mountains. During most of the 18th Century it served as the northern most outpost for the British Empire.


The story of the Last of the Mohicans, originally penned in 1826, has been translated into nearly every language in Europe and several in Asia according to Wikipedia. The novel is recognized around the world for its compelling messages of human struggle, prejudice and bold attempts at military world domination.


Fast forward with us from 1757 to today as the talented and dedicated cast of the Last of the Mohicans Outdoor Drama enchant and educate their audiences through a lively and compelling evening of entertainment under the stars.  The script written by playwright and Last of the Mohicans Outdoor Drama founder, Michael Dufault.


Experience Native dancing, natural woodland setting, military skirmishes, elaborate costumes, cannon fire, unfulfilled love...and the timeless story....of the Last of the Mohicans.


Enjoy an evening with us... where over 250 years ago soldiers fought and died during the "War that Made America".
