Though professional actors frequently are brought in to take leading roles, area citi- zens are used in most of the supporting -parts and also serve in technical and promo- tional capacities. The oldest of the season- long historical dramas is The Lost Colony, performed since 1937 on Roanoke Island off the coast of North Carolina. The drama relates the story of a band of colonists wbo. at- tempted to create the first British settlement on this con- tinent in 1587 and who three years later bad disappeared without a trace, a mystery never solved. One of the best-attended pageants is Unto These Hills, a dramatic production near the community of Cherokee in western North Carolina, which traces how the Che- rokee Indians were forced to leave their mountain home- land in the. winter of 1838. Descendants of the small group of Indians who were able to remain in this Smoky Mountains territory perform many of the roles in the drama. A new production this year win be presented at Jekyll Island in Georgia. Caleld Drumbeats in Georgia, it wfll depict toe successful coloniza- tion of the region in the early 1730s by a band of English settlers ted by James Ogle- thorpe. Other outdoor dramas rec- ommended by the United States Travel Service include: Cry of the Wild Ram, per- fprmed during August at Ko- diak, Alaska, portrays the struggles of Aelxander Bara- nov to forge a new Russia out of the untamed wilderness. Cross' and Sword, presented at St Augustine. Fla.. drama- tizes the story of explorer-ad- venturer Don Pedro Men- endez de Aviles who was sent by Philip n of Spain to estab- lish a permanent colony in the New World in 1565. Southern B.C. interior blooms as vacationland The southern interior of Brit- ish Columbia has become Lotus Land to thousands of fun- seekers over the past couple of decades. Divided into three tourist re- gions by Hie British Columbia government, the vast playland incorporates nearly all of the large lakes of southern British Columbia, and most of the prin- cipal rivers. The Okanagan Similkameen is named for the two main river valleys it the Similkameen flows east from the Cascade Mountains above Princeton as far as Kere- meos, then south-east across the border to join the south- bound Okanagan River near Tonasket, Washington. Famed Okanagan Lake, 80 miles long and a holidayer's delight is the largest lake of (Ms region, but Osoyoos, Vas- eaux, Skaha, Kalamalka and Wood Lakes are all part of the Okanagan River system and all offer clean sandy beaches, sparkling waters, spectacular scenery, excellent facilities and even some great fishing! (Rain- bow over 30 pounds have been taken from Okanagan Lake it- self in recent years. The small- er, tasty Kokanee are also plen- tiful in most of these lakes.) Holidayer also enjoy the .orch- ards and vineyards dotting the Okanagan hillsides. East of tiie Okanagan Sim- ilkameen lies a vast vacation- land known as the Kootenays. The Columbia River flows north from southeastern B.C. up the spectacular Rocky Mountain Trench a broad valley with the Canadian Rockies on the east and the equally spectacular Purcells and Selkirks on the west. This is hot springs coun- try, too, with luxury resorts such as Fairmont Hot Springs and Radium Hot Springs Lodge. Columbia and Windefmere are two of the best-known lakes in this section of the interior. Westward lies big and beauti- ful Kootenay Lake, famed for fishing, boating and "the world's longest free ferry ride." More hot springs appear among tfap myriad resorts surrounding this watery wonderland. After the Columbia makes its "big bend" and flows south again west of Kootenay Lake, it broadens out into the gigan- tic Arrow Reservoir stretch- ing from almost the Trans-Can- ada Highway in the north to Castiegar near the U.S. border. Boaters can now launch their craft at Revelstoke, sail south through the Arrow Reservoir, and thanks to the locks in the Keenleyside Dam, can proceed down tiie Columbia into Roose- velt Lake and on as far as Grand Coulee! Just north of these two re- gions lies the third, which en- compasses the Thompson-Shu- swap-Nicola system of rivers and lakes plus a chunk of the Columbia to the east, in- corporating the 'big bend1 and the spectacular mountain scen- ery of Rogers Pass, between Revelstoke and Golden. Mica Dam, highest earth fill dam in the western world, became op- erational this year and is ac- cessible to tourists via Revel- stoke. Shuswap Lake, boasting the longest shoreline of any lake in the province nearly miles with adjacent Mara and Little Shuswap Lakes is famous for house-boats, beaches- and Kamfloops Trout. Westward flows the South Thompson, join- ed by its northern twin at Kam- loops, Hub City of the southern interior. The North Thompson starts 'way up near the source of the Fraser, not too far from Mt. Robson, and flows down Wells Gray Provincial Park, the waterfall wonderland. South and west of Kamloops is cattle country the gigantic Douglas Lake Ranch lies east of Mefritt on Highway 5; small- er ranches lie all through the Thompson Valley toward Cache Creek and Spences Bridge. Fishing is fabulous the high lakes around Kamloops and Merritt vie with those of the Okanagan Similkameen and those of the Kootenays aa (he most prolific in the west Water skiing on take Okanagan Bahamas starts national airline NASSAU, Bahamas The Bahamas government's new national airline is expected to be off the ground by July 1.
