For 19 days…each May over 200 actors, technicians, designers and volunteers rehearse to bring The Lost Colony to life for another summer season. The production is enormous. The stage itself is over three times larger than most Broadway stages in New York. You will be seated in the center of the stage area with action happening on three sides of you and even sometimes right next to you in the aisle. Come see epic battles and Indian dances. Experience the sorrow and heartbreak of tragedy and loss. Witness the pageantry of the Queen and her court and celebrate the birth of Virginia Dare. There is music, laughter, romance and dance. The Lost Colony is widely acknowledged as the precursor to the modern American Broadway Musical.

Arrival…You should plan on arriving one half hour prior to your first scheduled event. For example if you’re doing the backstage tour at 7:30, arrive by 7:00. This gives you plenty of time to park, pick up your tickets, take some pictures, etc. Parking is very close to the box office but there is about a 150 yard walk from the box office into the theatre, so plan accordingly.

Pre Show…The theatre opens for seating at 7:30, but the rain-shelters are open at 6:00. Restrooms, gift shop and concessions are available. Music begins at 8:00.

Curtain…The play begins promptly at 8:30. Late arrivals may be held from going to their seats at the discretion of the house manager.

Length…The drama is performed in two one hour acts with a 15 minute intermission.
