MANTEO, N.C. — The group which runs the long-running play “The Lost Colony” has canceled the 83rd season scheduled to start at the end of May because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The board of directors of the Roanoke Island Historical Association announced on the play's Facebook page on Tuesday that the cancellation of Paul Green's play is the first since World War II. 

The board said the association didn't want to risk the safety of ticket buyers, cast crew, staff, and volunteers and determined that canceling the season was the best decision for all involved.
