About Us

With the grand opening of the theater in the summer of 2016, White Heron Theatre Company was finally poised to pursue the expansion of it's educational mission. In December of 2016, Tiffany Gallo joined the team as managing director of the Institute, now known as the Student Company, and focused on launching the inaugural summer season with Practical Intensives for students that, true to White Heron's mission, related directly back to the work being produced on the White Heron Theatre Company's main stage. 

Tiffany broadened the educational opportunities for dedicated student and adult members of the community, through NTI's A.I.R. (Artists In Residence) initiatives and Practical Intensives. These programs offer applicants the opportunity to expand their theatrical knowledge and proficiency, under the tutorage of accomplished artists and theatre educators. 

By providing educational Intensives in the various disciplines of the performing arts, White Heron and the Student Company seek to enrich the creative and cultural life of our island community.

White Heron's Student Company is thrilled to engage students and the community in the study of theatrical disciplines by providing access to local and nationally recognized professional artists and arts institutions.


In addition to providing theatre education intensives, White Heron and the Student Company are committed to bringing distinctive and diverse new plays to Nantucket; providing a space where artists are free to create, experiment, receive feedback from live audiences, and fine tune their work. This is the final phase in a new play's development as it gains a foothold on the national stage.

White Heron Theatre Company and the Student Company are proud to play a role in the education and creation of new plays for the American Stage.

A Humble Ask...

White Heron's Student Company relies on the generosity of friends, neighbors and patrons of the arts, like you, to help underwrite the cost of creating and producing unique theatrical Experiences for the community (including UnScripted talk-backs, Free tickets for Teachers & Students, and our Artist in Residence (A.I.R.) programs) along with our advanced level training for dedicated students who are interested in taking their skill-set to the next level.
