“longest-running outdoor symphonic drama!”

The Lost Colony is the longest-running outdoor symphonic drama in the world. Since 1937, over four million people have seen this dramatization of the plight and mysterious disappearance of the first English settlers in America. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Paul Green, the show is produced summer nights by a company of more than 100 actors, dancers, singers and technicians. Witness epic battles and Indian dances. Experience the sorrow and heartbreak of tragedy and loss. Be awed at the pageantry of the Queen and her court. Celebrate the birth of Virginia Dare. The Lost Colony is the forerunner of the modern Broadway musical and is a triumph of the American Theatre!

I have amazing memories of seeing this performance almost yearly growing up. As an adult, I have even more of an appreciation for the acting and production value of this program. The history of the Lost Colony is extremely interesting but not very well-known, and the well-written play will pull you in. The fact that you are on the very island the story originally played out on only adds to its authenticity and makes it very easy to immerse yourself in the story.
