The Lost Colony - Outdoor Drama on the Outer Banks

Thursday May 21, 2009 The Lost Colony tells the story of the first, but ill-fated, English settlement in the new world. Through drama, dance and song, this uniquely American dramatic form weaves the historical events into a fictional spectacle, portraying the dreams, struggles and courage of the lost colonists of Roanoke Island. Performed at Waterside Theatre, an outdoor theater under the stars situated at the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, The Lost Colony offers a wonderful way for all ages to explore history during your Outer Banks beach vacation.

The Lost Colony's 72nd production season begins on May 29, 2009, following the final dress rehearsal Preview Night on May 28. Performances continue throughout the summer until August 20, 2009: Monday - Saturday at 8 p.m. ((no performances on July 4, 11, 18, August 8, 15). For four nights (June 3, 4, 5 and 6, 2009), valid Dare County residents are admitted free to The Lost Colony. On these nights, residents are asked to bring canned food items to be donated to area food pantries.
