A NANTUCKET CHRISTMAS CAROL

Adapted by Mark Shanahan from Charles Dickens 

November 25 – December 3, 2022 

Thursdays – Saturdays @ 7:30 PM

Sunday matinees @ 4:00 PM

Let the holiday spirits light your way. 

A Nantucket Christmas Carols’ half-price ticket program is supported by the ReMain Nantucket Fund

The spirit of the island meets the spirits of the holidays!  The whale oil trade has made Ebenezer Scrooge a wealthy man, but islanders know him better for his hard heart and miserly ways.  The apparition of his partner, Jacob Marley, and the three spirits of Christmas visit to remind him that “mankind is his business.”  This clever weaving of the beloved tale with Nantucket history creates a wholly original experience for the whole family. A Nantucket Christmas Carol is moving to a biennial schedule, so this is your last chance to see this island tradition until 2024!

WHITE HERON RADIO THEATRE

Original Radio Drama created especially for you, our Nantucket audience.

Ghost Light Series

In the theatre we have a tradition. Whenever the stage goes dark between performances, we always like to leave a single light burning in the house until the curtain can rise again. We call it – a “ghost light.” And until we can all meet once more at White Heron, we’re pleased to offer you something we like to call our Ghost Light Series. Original Radio Drama created especially for you, our Nantucket audience. Nantucket’s White Heron Theatre Company presents White Heron Radio Theatre. Our first series, The Ghost Light Series, is adapted by Mark Shanahan from Blue Baillett’s book Nantucket Ghosts, 44 True Accounts. Performed by White Heron’s award-winning actors. Original music, sound design and audio production by John Gromada.

All episodes are available on Simplecast or wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts.
