The Lost Colony Play has been a big attraction for many visitors since it started in 1937. As a local resident I have seen it every year since 1975. I attended the free Residents performance last Friday. For anybody who has not seen it, go, its such a big part of the Outer Banks and its History. However, for those who have seen it, especially multiple times you may be surprised and walk out wondering what you just saw. Without giving away script or story line, here are some highlights or closer to "Lowlights". First and foremost the Old Tom Character has been relegated to the Ensemble. A 5 member Drum Line playing College Marching Band Cadences makes you feel like a College Football Game. It's supposed to be 1587. All Religion has been removed from scenes. A "Bellydancer" sends off the Colony from England. Actually she needs a Pole, it would be more interesting. Lastly, all but one Indian Fight Scene have been removed. Death and Hardships are depicted by Puppets. Music has gone Broadway or Hollywood with "Period" sounding music essentially eliminated. Creative, I guess so! For and old timer I would not go again. Go see it and make your own decision.
