We always advise that you purchase your tickets in advance to ensure preferred seating. If you wait until the night of the performance, we cannot guarantee seats will be available.
The sooner you buy your tickets, the better choices you have in choosing your seats. We recommend at least a week in advance.
Seats cannot be reserved without payment.
We are casual. Dress comfortably. Remember we are outdoors, so a light jacket is a good idea to have handy.
Children are welcome! We believe The Lost Colony is an experience for the entire family. There are loud bangs, so if your little one is scared of loud noises, use your best judgment. We love children and offer family programming on many occasions, but some shows may not be appropriate for younger audiences based on the nature of the content or on the need for quiet during certain pieces. If you have a question about whether a specific show is appropriate, call the Box Office at 252-473-6000. Only you know how attentive your children are and how they behave. Do keep in mind that if your child is causing distractions to the guests around them, you may be asked to leave your seat until your child settles down.
Everyone entering the theatre, regardless of age, must have a ticket even if there is not a charge for it. So they must have their own ticket for admission, but of course, may sit in your lap if they prefer that over a seat!
You are welcome to bring your stroller. Strollers must be left in the rain shelters located at the back of the theatre, unattended and at your own risk.
To ensure the comfort and safety of all our guests, we do not permit pets to attend the performance, with the exception of Certified Service Animals.
Wheelchair seating is available; please call the ticket office in advance for assistance before making your purchase. A limited amount of wheelchairs are also available for patrons who require them.
If you need a sign language interpreter, please let us know two weeks in advance (the required time to notify our interpreter) and we will make every attempt to have one for you. Scripts are always available when sign language interpretation is not. This service is provided by the generous support of the Kealy Family Foundation.
Yes. We ask that you turn your flash off. Also note that due to copyright laws, videotaping is prohibited.
Smoking is not permitted in the theatre.
We do not allow the use of umbrellas in the theatre, as they are a distraction to other patrons. Rain ponchos are available in the gift shop.
If you are unable to attend a performance, we welcome ticket exchanges up to 24 hours before the scheduled performance for a credit towards any future available show. There is NO FEE for changing your date. Your ticket purchase may always be turned into a tax-deductible donation to the theatre if you are unable to attend.
We ask that you call the ticket office as soon as possible to work out an exchange.
All prepaid tickets have the option of printing at home, will call or mobile device scan. If you lose your tickets just stop by the ticket office and we will gladly reprint your tickets.
Outside food and drinks are not permitted. The Manteo Lion’s Club operates two concession stands inside the theatre.
We recommend that you bring spray or other repellent with you. We do offer brand spray at the concession stands.
We do not. There are several ATM locations in Manteo, approximately four miles to the south.
The show starts at 7:45PM, seating begins at 7:15PM. The lobby areas open at 6:00PM. We suggest you arrive at least one half hour prior to curtain. The show runs approximately two hours with an intermission.
We believe that all of our seats are awesome! House Right seats offer the best view of the Queen's stage. House Left seats offer the best view of the Indian stage. Before buying your seats, have a good look at our seating map.
Yes we do!
