White Heron is Nantucket's Professional Repertory Theatre. A not-for-profit theatre company, first formed in New York in 2005, by Lynne Bolton and Earle Gister. Now run by Lynne and Michael Kopko, the Company moved to Nantucket in 2011. We produce classical and contemporary works in a transformational, character-driven way. Our goal is to bring meaningful art to the Nantucket community. You can find us directly behind the Whaling Museum!

Loved the production we saw, called SeaWife. Wonderful music, acting and story that was perfect for the whaling community of Nantucket. Highly recommend!

This is a stunningly beautiful new theater with interesting programming. We were fortunate to see SeaWife there. Wonderful art in the hallway, very elegant with high production values. Would like to go back!

Great show from NYC! A whaling story in Nantucket-where else? The musicians/actors were all very talented. I love the part where they all sway as if actually on the ship. Music is lively. White Heron Theatre is a wonderful new facility.

Enchanting intimate theater. Clearly the seven collaborative actor/musicians have an undefinable gift. From the squak of the bird eminating from the cello to the sound of the ocean furies to the love songs these young professionals grace the stage with immeasurable presence.

We saw The Underpants at this wonderful theatre. This Equity production was hilarious and the acting company was top rate. The White Heron recently opened its new building. It's lovely.

As year-round residents, we've had the pleasure of viewing White Heron's plays on Nantucket during all four seasons. This summer we have season tickets and if the first two performances are any indication of what is yet to come, we can't wait for more! This...More
