Front of House
The Lost Colony is one of the Outer Bank’s tradition. 2023 marks our 86th Anniversary Season of welcoming guests to come see our show. Since 1937, we have welcomed over 4 1/2 million people into the gates of the Waterside Theatre. Our guest’s experience starts as soon as they enter the gates of the theatre, and if they don’t have a pleasant experience before and after the show, it doesn’t matter how good the show is. We are looking for friendly faces to help sell tickets, help guests to their seats, and sell items out of our gift shop. If you’d like to spend a summer helping our guests make memories, we’d love to have you as Front of House Staff for the 2023 season. See below for details!
