The Lost Colony

Description

Bursting with action and excitement, The Lost Colony is the epic story of America’s first English colony. Over thirty years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, a group of 117 weary men, women and children waded ashore on Roanoke Island in July 1587 to establish the first permanent settlement of its kind in the Americas. Recruited by Sir Walter Raleigh, among these settlers was John White, his pregnant daughter, Eleanor Dare, her husband Ananias. On August 18, 1587 Eleanor Dare gave birth to a daughter she named Virginia, thus earning the distinction of being the first English child born on American soil. Ten days later, John White departed for England promising to return with more supplies. It was the last time he would ever see his family. Three years later, John White returned to Roanoke Island to find the settlement deserted. On one of the palisades, he found the single word "CROATOAN" carved into the surface. The 117 pioneers of Roanoke Island had vanished into the great wilderness. Their fate remains to this day unknown & is considered to be America’s greatest cold case. Nestled along the shores of America’s most historic and mysterious island, over 100 professional actors, technicians & designers gather every summer to honor the memory of the brave people who came here to build a new country. The production is as epic as their story. The Lost Colony is a cultural treasure and the best family entertainment on the Outer Banks!
