'Lost Colony' Executive Director To Resign

The executive director and producer of the North Carolina outdoor drama "The Lost Colony" is stepping down in October.

The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, Virginia reported that Carl Curnutte has said the 73rd season will be his final season with the show, which opens May 28. The drama tells the story of the disastrous first attempt at a permanent English settlement on Roanoke Island in the New World in 1587.

Curnutte confirmed his resignation last week but would not talk about it. The chairman of the Roanoke Island Historical Association says the resignation is effective Oct. 20, two months after the season ends.

Curnutte has been connected to the show for 21 years.

    I am so looking for to this summer season of shows. They do so many other shows other than the Lost Colony and they are all great and you can't beat the price. Can hardly wait to take the kidos to see The Frog Prince, The Wizard of OZ & High School Musical! What a great summer vacation close to home!
