English Colonists. African Missionaries

Last night, Steve Sarah and I went to see The Lost Colony, a musical drama which is performed in an outdoor theater every summer here in Manteo. It was local resident’s night so our admission price was just two cans of food. (That made our bargain-lovin’ hearts ever so happy.)

As the oldest and longest running of America’s outdoor dramas, The Lost Colony has been performed since 1937 for over 3 million people.

The queen’s dress weighs 60 pounds; her costuming costs $25,000. (Just think. Whenever she gets undressed, she loses 60 pounds. Sounds good to me!)

One of Andy Griffith's earliest acting roles was playing Sir Walter Raleigh from 1949 to 1953. (He seems to be a bit bemused—or maybe perplexed?—by all the lovely ladies surrounding him.)

The production features music, dance, drama, action, and special effects with lavish sets and costumes. (I can’t even keep my own closet clean so I can’t imagine keeping track of all those amazing costumes.) And speaking of costumes, a couple years ago, all of the costumes were destroyed in a fire and they had to be completely re-made. The new ones are incredible.

Virginia Dare, the first child born to English parents in the New World, is featured.

We do not know the fate of Virginia Dare or the First Colony. We do know, however, that the story of America is largely a record of that spirit of adventure."
-- President Franklin D. Roosevelt in an address to the audience of
The Lost Colony on August 18, 1937.



So that was last night. Today was spent working at the church about four hours, getting groceries, taking a bike ride with Steve, and doing some cleaning. Tomorrow after church we are having a missionary couple from Africa over for lunch so I’ll spend tonight cooking for that. (And getting Sarah to help me fold the bulletins.)

Bike rides, bulletins, cooking, English colonists, African missionaries—it’s turning out to be a great weekend!

We saw The Lost Colony several years ago. It is awesome. We just returned from Atlantic Beach and enjoyed it so much. You really are blessed to live at the beach. We had wonderful weather even though it was windy. I'd fix my hair and when I walked outside--too bad. Enjoy your missionaries. That is a great experience. I remember growing up having visiting ministers and young people in our home for meals and to spend the night. What a blessing! I think young people and children miss out on that today. God bless!

Becky, I have been wanting to take the kids to see The Lost Colony for a couple of years now. Maybe this will be the year! Those pictures make me want to do it even more now. Glad to hear your weekend is going well.

Hope

Hey Ms. Becky, haven't said "hi" in a while so I thought I'd stop in. I haven't gotten to see The Lost Colony yet, but have been wanting to. My Momma saw it when she was young and always talked about how neat it was. Hope all the Smiths have a wonderful week!

I love North Carolina history...through the years the Lost Colony Drama has changed some....not quite so accurate anymore...but it is still a great experience!
The last time we were there we were eaten up by mosquitoes! :)
Sounds like a busy but fun weekend! Can't wait for our annual two week trip to the OBX...
Have a great week!
