The Lost Colony, Manteo

Bursting with action and excitement, The Lost Colony is the exciting musical re-telling of America’s first English Colony and the great mystery that surrounds it. Nestled along the shores of America’s most historic and mysterious island, over 100 professional actors, technicians and designers have gathered every summer since 1937 to honor the memory of the brave people who came here to build a new country. The production is as epic as their story. Written by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Paul Green, The Lost Colony is a cultural treasure and the best family entertainment on the Outer Banks!
