To celebrate the birthday of Virginia Dare, the first English child born in the New World, on Roanoke Island on August 18, 1587, The Lost Colony has released a special tribute video.
“The birth of Virginia Dare brought hope to the ill-fated Colony that their brave dreams would outlast their struggle,” stated a message from The Lost Colony accompanying the video.
“Each year on Virginia’s birthday, The Lost Colony production features newborn babies from our local community. Unfortunately the 83rd Season was cancelled, so our alumni have created this special tribute in her honor!
“We wish to celebrate this day and recognize all the performers who have played the role of Virginia Dare or her mother Eleanor. Ye are remembered!”
