The Lost Colony Outdoor Drama - Roanoke Island - Manteo, NC

My Favorite Part of Roanoke

Wow! I loved this!

At the beginning before the play, there was a town's person actor that was juggling knives. He was really good and funny.

Mom got tickets for the front row on the isle and during the whole play, indians, soldiers and others kept running up and down right beside me as part of the play.

There were sad, funny, dramatic and frightening parts. My favorite part was when one of the indians kept chasing Tom to try to kiss him. That was so funny.

I got Queen Elizabeth's autograph, John White's autograph and others. I really had a great time that night.



This was a very special part of the trip for me. I was about Jessica's age the last time I saw this play and it was great being able to share it with her.

It was amazing to see how much they have recovered since the last fire they had a few years ago. The costumes and actors were incredible. The play was great. It did have a couple of slower parts that could have been left out, but other than that, it was a hit.

I didn't realize we would be so close to the stage when I bought the tickets. I just didn't want to have someone's head in front of Jessica so she couldn't see, but that would not have been the case if we had sat further back. The seats are made to have a good rise to them so everyone can see everything.

We were able to take pictures before the play started, but cameras were not allowed during the production. I got the pictures I could before and after.

If you get to that area, try not to miss it. This was a good hit and not a miss of our trip :).
