Toast the beginning of the 2021 season for one of the country’s most acclaimed outdoor dramas, The Lost Colony, with this special opening performance at the famed Waterside Theater in the heart of Downtown Manteo. The Lost Colony is the longest-running outdoor drama in America, and is an acclaimed production that tells the story of the first colonists to arrive from England to the “New World,” eventually creating a settlement just steps away from where the performance takes place.

The Lost Colony remains one of the oldest and most fascinating mysteries in American history, as just a couple years after being established, the entire colony disappeared, leaving few clues behind as to the fate of the settlers. The incredible performance combines music, dance, and intricate period costumes to outline this rich history, and to present theories on what might have happened to these original settlers. An iconic Outer Banks tradition for now 80 years running, this special “opening night” performance is not to be missed by newcomers and longtime fans of the show alike. Tickets can be purchased in advance via the Lost Colony website.
