Bursting with action and excitement, The Lost Colony is the epic story of America’s first English colony, and the longest running Outdoor Historical Drama in the United States. 3 years after leaving 117 men, women and children, Gov. John White returned to Roanoke to find the settlement deserted. On one of the palisades, he found the single word “CROATOAN” carved into the surface. The 117 pioneers of Roanoke Island had vanished into the great wilderness. Their fate remains to this day unknown & is considered to be America’s greatest cold case. Nestled along the shores of America’s most historic and mysterious island, over 100 professional actors, technicians & designers gather every summer to honor the memory of the brave people who came here to build a new country.

Now based in New York City, he’s become a regular in the town’s best rooms and grown into an act that thrives in any setting, from upscale country clubs to divey pubs. Weaving sly topical jokes with crafty material and a dash of crowd-work, Moody’s likeability shines in any setting.
