new twists on our favorite obx tale
If you haven’t seen The Lost Colony lately, it’s time to revisit this old friend. If you’ve never been, this is the season to fix that. Changes, both savvy and exciting, are bringing fresh energy to the show that you don’t want to miss! Neel Keller, writing for the Outer Banks Sentinel, has the details.
“When the 78th season of The Lost Colony opens on May 29, America’s longest running outdoor symphonic drama will feature a number of new wrinkles. There will be a new cast of key actors and the return of the “burning girl” character. The play will also start a half-hour earlier and run five to 10 minutes shorter.
Bill Coleman, who signed on as CEO of The Lost Colony in September 2012 after an extensive background managing nonprofit arts organizations in Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio, is excited about the changes being introduced in this year’s production. “We’re re-telling an old story,” he says. In his two years at the production’s helm, the CEO has introduced an impressive succession of innovative changes.”
