Watch the greatest mystery in American history under the stars, right where these actual events occurred. 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. Under the direction of Ira David Wood III, a company of over 100 actors, dancers, singers and technicians creates 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 the nation’s oldest mystery to life.
