Outdoor Theatrical Drama
Outdoor Dramas are scripted theatrical productions that take place in the natural environment. These productions can vary in size and scope, all being able to lower the 4th wall between the audience and the actors being staged in the natural surrounds of the larger venue.
Since 2012, "Drums Along the Mohawk Outdoor Drama" a play by Kyle Jenks created from the Walter Edmonds book, has been a summer resident. Now recognized as part of New York State's Pathways through History Tour, several performances are scheduled for this year.

Revolutionary War Re-Enactments have been held since 2009 with "Drums Above the Mohawk". In 2012, the 235th Anniversary of the Battle of Oriskany brought more than 2,000 re-enactors to the Estate for performance, games and recreation. Produced by Jeff Tew, the resident historian for the Estate, re-enactments have been a valuable, free public event that offer "edu-tainment" and allow spectators to be immersed in the experience of the Colonial era.
