The 80th season of “The Lost Colony”— a combination of history, drama, laughter, song and dance — opens May 26 at Roanoke Island's Waterside Theatre.

The award-winning symphonic play was penned by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paul Green, a native of North Carolina, and commemorates Sir Walter Raleigh’s doomed colony on Roanoke Island, the first English settlement in North America.

The play made its debut before a sold out crowd on July 4, 1937. It was intended to be a one-summer run, but after President Franklin D. Roosevelt attended a performance on August 18, 1937, its future was brighter than anyone expected.

In 2013, “The Lost Colony” was awarded a special Tony Award for Excellence in Theatre by the American Theatre Wing. After eight decades, it’s still going strong.
