Roanoke Island

Every summer the Roanoke Island Historical Society presents, the outdoor symphonic drama, The Lost Colony.  In 2013, this production was the recipient of the Tony Honor of Excellence in Theater award.  The performance was magnificent.  Brilliant staging and elaborate costuming. 

We got up close and personal with many of the actors and toured backstage.  I was especially impressed with the seamstresses that keep the costumes in tact and looking authentic. 

While in the area, we visited the aquarium, too.  This aquarium is also a turtle rescue and rehabilitation location.  You can visit the rehabilitation center and see some of the recuperating turtles.  Once well enough, they are released back to the sea.
