Welcome to The Lost Colony
In 1587, 117 English men, women, and children came ashore on Roanoke Island with a commission from Elizabeth I 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.
My whole family enjoyed the wonderful performance of The Lost Colony. The costumes were amazing and the story was true to history. I can’t wait to see it again on my next visit to the Outer Banks. We did the backstage tour before the performance. I highly recommend it!
The actors were amazing, the costumes and sets were so realistic, and the story kept us on the edge of our seats. This is a must do for any OBX vacationer!
“Great family time!”
I have not seen the Lost Colony since 1987. I don’t remember it being as good as it was last week! Loved it. I highly recommend this play. Historical entertainment.
