Pontine Theatre Presents: A White Heron

 A White Heron

Join Pontine Co-Artistic Directors, Greg Gathers & Marguerite Mathews, as they share their original staging of Sarah Orne Jewett’s beloved story A White Heron

Sarah Orne Jewett (1849-1909) was an American writer born into an old New England family in the coastal town of South Berwick, Maine. Drawing from her native region, she is admired for her stories celebrating small town life set on the Maine seacoast. Pontine brings Jewett’s story to life through storytelling, toy theatre figures, shadow puppetry and rolling panoramas. You can watch A White Heron at your convenience anytime between December 7 and New Year’s Day.  The video includes a behind-the-scenes look at the production with Greg and Marguerite.  If you’ve never seen a Pontine Theatre play, we encourage you to view this unique and beautiful show which is suitable for the whole family.
