Welcome to The Lost Colony
In 1587, 117 English men, women, and children came ashore on Roanoke Island to establish a permanent English settlement in the New World. Just three years later in 1590, when English ships returned to bring supplies, they found the island deserted with no sign of the colonists. After nearly 450 years, the mystery of what happened to the colonists remains unsolved.
The Lost Colony, is performed each summer on the same site where these actual events occurred. Under the direction of Ira David Wood, III, a company of over 100 actors, dancers, singers, and technicians create a magical evening for your whole family.
Become immersed in epic battles, haunting Native American dances, elegant costuming, and beautiful music in this enormous stage production. The Lost Colony brings our nation’s oldest mystery to life.
If you go I would definitely recommend doing the backstage tour. The show itself was truly entertaining and most informative. This is a must do attraction!
“History, a show and beautiful location”
I have been visiting the Outer Banks and seeing this show for 30 years. It’s wonderful every time! North Carolina has such interesting, rich history and I’m glad my boys got to experience this with me to learn more about the state they live in.
The singing and acting are marvelous but the story will captivate any one interested in the settlement of our country and what happened to those brave souls who decided to risk it all and put down roots here–if only briefly. We enjoyed it immensely
