In 1937, The Lost Colony show opened and President Roosevelt visited the Waterside Theatre to attend the performance. The nation discovered the Outer Banks of North Carolina – beautiful barrier islands with a wealth of American history. The Lost Colony has become a world renowned theatrical production and a recipient of the Tony Honor for Excellence in Theatre with amazing costumes designed by William Ivey Long, a Tony Award winning designer. The performance continues to offer a unique Outer Banks experience to all its patrons, and remains a leader in heritage tourism for this region’s economy, drawing visitors from around the world.
