Mystery of the Lost Colony

Old Tom, famous for his line “Roanoke, O’ Roanoke, Thou hast made a man of me!” in The Lost Colony, grins with delight as he receives a check from Dominion Energy for a new touring production, Mystery of the Lost Colony. This fall, five additional characters from The Lost Colony will join Old Tom in this new educational production for young audiences about the first English settlement on Roanoke Island in 1587. The production will tour elementary schools in Currituck, Edenton-Chowan and Hertford counties during September and October. Mystery of The Lost Colony was generously funded by Dominion Energy to perform free in these Eastern NC schools. Winnie Wiseman of Dominion Energy (middle) is presenting the check to Old Tom (Matt Gabbard), Bill Coleman and Lance Culpepper of the Roanoke Island Historical Association. For more information on this educational program, or about bringing the performance to a school near you, please call 252 441-2127.
