Outer Banks, NC – The Roanoke Island Historical Association (RIHA), producers of The Lost Colony, is pleased to announce 2019 “Dare Nights”. Dare County locals can receive a free ticket to the show on the first 3 Fridays in June – the 7th, 14th and 21st — with a donation of non-perishable foods or paper products. This is an excellent opportunity for Dare County residents to see The Lost Colony while supporting the local food pantries. “Dare Nights” are sponsored by Midgett Insurance Agency.
The show starts at 7:45 PM and theatre guests are encouraged to arrive early. Tickets will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis. In addition to the food or dry goods donations, residents are required to show proof of Dare County residency. Pre-performance donation collection begins at 6:00 PM. Recommended items for the food drive include canned vegetables, fruits, meats, soups and beans; tomato and pasta products; cereals; toilet paper and paper towels. There are no rain checks with these free tickets.
