ItâåÛåªs time for an early season plug of the Lost Colony. The first show of the 2014 season isnâåÛåªt until May 30, but there is so much happening this year, and the accolades have been so strong recently, that it may be a good idea to get a little ahead of the season.
A mainstay of an Outer Banks summer, this will be the 77th consecutive year the play has been produced. It has been updated, but through it all it has remained remarkably true to the original script by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, Paul Green.
It is outdoor theatre, and there is magic in sitting at the site of the first English attempt at colonizing the new world and seeing the story brought to life on stage.
It is theatre of the first caliber–so good, in fact that it won a Tony last year for Excellence in Theatre.
The theatre company is not resting on its laurels though. The play is not performed on Sundays–even actors need a day off–but Sundays are binging some really interesting acts to the Waterside Theatre stage, including The Red Clay Ramblers and Molasses Creek on Sunday June 29 and the LovinâåÛåª Spoonful on July 20–now thatâåÛåªs a blast from the past.
The play is suitable for all members of the family and it is a great night out in a truly unique setting. If the opportunity presents itself, take advantage of it.
