Lost Colony Brings OBX History Alive

Now that summer is here, or summer starting on Memorial Day, the Outer Banks entertainment calendar is filling up so fast that you could get dizzy just trying to follow everything.

The one entertainment that is back now for it 78th year is the Lost Colony-the longest running outdoor drama in the United States.

The play is a great show and worth visit, or a revisit, because they keep tweaking and revamping it. With lighting and staging from Broadway professionals, the show truly is a night of theatre on par with anything anywhere.

Presenting a story of what became of the Lost Colony of Roanoke Island in the last 16th century, the play is a feast for the eyes, invariably is very well acted-quite a number of big name stars have graced Waterside Theater since the play opened in 1937-and is great night out for the whole family.

The play runs throughout the summer, with the last performance on August 22.

For more than 40 years, the Lost Colony actors have been participating in a great children's play, How I Became a Pirate. Matinees are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The play is a lot of fun; parents will get a kick out of it and kids will love it.
