Open-Air Theater

Performed at the Waterside Theatre on Roanoke Island, The Lost Colony is a symphonic drama that brings the eternal mystery of a Roanoke colony that seemed to simply vanish in the 16th century to life on stage. The performance details the story of 117 English women, men and children that were sent to Roanoke in 1587 to establish a settlement in the name of the Queen. Three years later, a fleet of English ships was sent to the colony bearing necessary supplies only to find that the colonists were nowhere to be found and not a single sign of settlement life remained. To this day, what happened to the colonist remains entirely unclear and continues to captivate the minds and imaginations of scholars as well as residents of Roanoke Island. Guests who take time to enjoy The Lost Colony will bear witness to onstage battles, dances, romance, laughter and tragedy as the story unfolds before your very eyes.
