MissionTo foster a love and appreciation for the performing arts in audiences of today and tomorrow.
Our visionTo be the finest performing arts center in New England.
The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts is a 2,300 seat theatre that draws over 197,000 patrons annually with world-class performances and headlining acts including Broadway hits (“Les Misérables,” “Jersey Boys”, Kinky Boots), comedians (Dave Chappelle, Jay Leno, Wanda Sykes, Daniel Tosh), musicians (Neil Young, Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin, John Legend) and everything in between (“A Christmas Carol,” Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Alton Brown, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson). In 2008, the theatre was a winner of a National Trust for Historic Preservation Award for its renovation and restoration of the original 1904 building. Since its re-opening, POLLSTAR consistently ranks The Hanover Theatre as one of the Top Theatres in the World. After nine seasons, the award-winning, historic theatre continues to establish its place as a world-class performing arts venue, acting as a catalyst for the economic development of downtown Worcester. The Hanover Theatre’s acquisition of 551 Main Street houses new function space, offices, rental space for a restaurant on the ground floor and The Hanover Theatre Conservatory for the Performing Arts on the lower level.
