Dwayne Walls Jr. – Backstage at the Lost Colony

Saturday, August 11   |   11:00 am

Backstage at The Lost Colony goes behind the scenes of America’s most beloved outdoor drama to give readers a view of the show the audience never sees-the grinding toil, occasional mishaps, and moments of grace.

 

Seen by millions and honored with a Tony Award for Excellence in Theatre, The Lost Colony has defied the odds for more than eighty years. From its improbable founding during the Great Depression, through fires and flood, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paul Green’s first and most famous symphonic outdoor drama is a study in resilience. And like the Lost Colonists of Roanoke Island who inspired the show, the people who created and sustained it-and who continue to preserve its legacy-are a study in passion and determination. This book is about them.
