About: It's back! The 87th year of Roanoke Island Historical Association's production of The Lost Colony is hitting the stage May 30, 2024! This play was first staged in 1937 and is the nation's longest-running outdoor symphonic drama. Filled with intense battles, beautiful indigenous dances, and tears of both joy and sadness, this production tells the story of 117 English men, women and children from our history.

This is a huge production with over 120 actors, designers, technicians, and volunteers who all came together in the Spring to begin preparing for this summer's incredible season. Come to The Lost Colony and find yourself engulfed in this drama, not only through its compelling story but sit right in the middle of the action with the show taking place on three sides of you! Not only that, the stage is over 3 times larger than most Broadway stages in New York City! Talk about an experience! No visit to the Outer Banks is complete without a visit to this unforgettable performance.
