Backstage Tours

Take a backstage tour for a behind-the-scenes look at how The Lost Colony comes to life. Highly praised by our patrons, this tour is one of very few… if not the only… that allows audience member backstage during final show preparations. You will hear historical and fun facts, see weaponry and stunt demonstrations and actors doing last minute touch ups. The tour is especially recommended for parties with children. Tours begin at 6:30pm and last approximately one hour. Purchase your tickets in advance to ensure your spot!

Rain Policy & Insurance

We rarely cancel a performance prior to showtime.  In the event that your performance is cancelled due to weather conditions, your tickets become rain-checks which you can use at any other performance during the season. You may also add rain insurance to your tickets for an additional charge.

A performance may be cancelled because of rain or other atmospheric or weather conditions which might make it unsafe to continue. If a performance is officially cancelled, an announcement to that effect will be made. Tickets for a cancelled performance will be honored as rain checks and can be exchanged for any subsequent performance during the season. Insurance is available at an additional cost when purchasing tickets and entitles the patron to a full refund of the ticket price. Refunds are only given if insurance has been purchased. If patrons leave of their own volition and the show is not cancelled, no rain checks or refunds will be given.

Rain Insurance is $3 per ticket and may be purchased along with your tickets.  VIP tickets include rain insurance and are entitled to a refund of $20 per adult ticket and $2.50 per child.

Please note that all sales are final.

Donate Your Tickets

If you cannot attend the performance due to an emergency or unforeseen circumstance, you may change your performance date to a future date that season, or choose to donate your tickets to the Roanoke Island Historical Association, producer of The Lost Colony. This request can be made up to 5 minutes prior to the performance’s curtain by the ticket buyer. RIHA will send the ticket buyer a receipt for the tax-deductible portion of the ticket purchase. If you are issued a rain check ticket due to the cancellation of a performance, and you are not able to attend the show on another night during the season, you may choose to donate the tax deductible portion of your ticket to RIHA.

Can we bring an umbrella?
We do not allow the use of umbrella’s in the theatre, as they are a distraction to other patrons. Rain ponchos are available in the gift shop.

Your Purchase is Risk Free!
If you are unable to attend a performance, we welcome ticket exchanges up to 24 hours before the scheduled performance for a credit towards any future available show. There is NO FEE for changing your date. Your ticket purchase may always be turned into a tax-deductible donation to the theatre if you are unable to attend.

We had a family emergency and had to return home. Can we get a refund?
We ask that you call the ticket office as soon as possible to work out an exchange.

What if I lose my tickets?
No worries!  We don’t mail tickets out, so your tickets will be held for you at the ticket office the day of your event.  You don’t need to worry about them being lost in the mail, in your luggage or on your fridge!

What time does the show start?
The show starts at 7:30 pm, seating begins at 7:00 pm.  The lobby areas open at 6:00 PM. We suggest you arrive at least one half hour prior to curtain. The show runs approximately two hours with an intermission.

Where are the best seats?
We believe that all of our seats are awesome! House Right seats offer the best view of the Queen’s stage. House Left seats offer the best view of the Indian stage. Before buying your seats, have a good look at our seating map.

Do you offer Group Rates?
Yes we do! Click on the group tab on the menu to your left for more information.

Do I have to purchase tickets in advance?
We always advise that you purchase your tickets in advance to ensure preferred seating. If you wait until the night of the performance we cannot guarantee seats will be available.

How soon do I need to purchase my tickets?
The sooner you buy your tickets, the better choices you have in choosing your seats. We recommend at least a week in advance.

Can you reserve my seats and I will pay cash when I arrive?
Seats cannot be reserved without payment.

What should I wear?
We are casual. Dress comfortably.  Remember we are outdoors, so a light jacket is a good idea to have handy.

Should we wear bug repellent?
Yes. We highly recommend that you bring spray or other repellent with you. We do offer “OFF” brand spray at the concession stands.

Can I bring my children?
Children are welcome! We believe The Lost Colony is an experience for the entire family. There are loud bangs, so if your little one is scared of loud noises, use your best judgment.  We love children and offer family programming on many occasions, but some shows may not be appropriate for younger audiences based on the nature of the content or on the need for quiet during certain pieces. If you have a question about whether a specific show is appropriate, call the box office at 252-473-6000. Only you know how attentive your children are and how they behave. Do keep in mind that if your child is causing distractions to the guests around them, you may be asked to leave your seat until your child settles down.

Can I hold my child in my lap or do they need a ticket?
Yes. Everyone entering the theatre, regardless of age, must have a ticket even if there is not a charge for it.  So they must have their own ticket for admission, but of course, may sit in your lap if they prefer that over a seat!

Can I bring my stroller?
You are welcome to bring your stroller. Strollers must be left in the rain shelters located at the back of the theatre, unattended and at your own risk.

Is your theatre wheelchair accessible?
Wheelchair seating is available; please call the ticket office in advance for assistance before making your purchase. Wheelchairs are also available for patrons who require them.

Do you offer Sign Language Interpreters?
If you need a sign language interpreter, please let us know two weeks in advance (the required time to notify our interpreter) and we will make every attempt to have one for you. Scripts are always available when sign language interpretation is not. This service is provided by the generous support of the Kealy Family Foundation.

Can we take pictures during the show?
Yes. We ask that you turn your flash off. Also note that due to copyright laws, videotaping is prohibited.

What is your smoking policy?
Smoking is not permitted in the theatre

Can we bring food and drinks?
The Manteo Lion’s Club operates two concession stands inside the theatre. Outside food and drinks are not permitted.

Are there places to eat or stay near the theatre?
Please visit the Outer Banks Convention and Visitors Bureau website for more information on lodging and dining.

Do you have an ATM on site?
We do not. There are several ATM locations in Manteo, approximately four miles to the south.
