New 7:30pm Showtime For All Performances Monday-Saturday, May 29-August 22! More than 400 years ago a group of English colonists sailed across the ocean to Roanoke Island. Their adventure has been memorialized in a dramatic play that is performed during the summer at the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site. These men, women and children attempted to settle in America but met with hardship and subsequently disappeared. Some historians believe the group split up and some went to what is now Cape Hatteras and were assumed into the Croatoan tribe while others went north to Chesapeake, Virginia and were killed. In the play filled with music, dance, pageantry and outstanding costuming, visitors will witness Indian dancing, elegant Queen Elizabeth and the birth of Virginia Dare, said to be the first child of English descent born on American soil.
