The Roanoke Island Historical Association has been awarded a $2,000 matching grant to hire a coordinator for The Lost Colony’s educational outreach programs, including its theater arts camp and the launch of a new fall arts program.

“The Lost Colony is thrilled to begin the search for a theater educator to join the team for summer, 2018,” Lance Culpepper, associate producer of The Lost Colony, said in a press release.

“Having an educator on staff will allow us to further develop and enrich our theatre arts camps, Mystery of The Lost Colony Tour, and Ghosts of The Lost Colony experience,” Culpepper added.


The grant is one of seven inaugural grants from the Southeastern Theatre Conference to professional theaters across the United States. Their purpose is to provide resources to help professional theaters with hiring, staffing and networking opportunities.

The Roanoke Island Historical Association is the nonprofit that produces The Lost Colony outdoor historic drama, and is a member of the Southeastern Theatre Conference. The theater conference is a network of theater practitioners that provides extensive resources and year-round opportunities to its members.

“The Roanoke Island Historical Association is very excited about this new opportunity,” a press release from the association said. “We are very grateful to SETC for this grant, which offers creative resources and funding that will assist with our programming goals.”
