In 1587, 117 English men, women, and children came ashore on Roanoke Island 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.
