Theatre District Campaign

The Hanover Theatre puts downtown Worcester center stage

Downtown Worcester is fertile ground, experiencing a cultural and economic transformation that is ushering in significant development activity on Main Street and core areas of the city.  After almost a decade of operational success and excellent reputation, the theatre is poised to play a larger role in the cultural rebirth of the city and to steward positive change beyond our current footprint. 

The Theatre District Campaign

About the cTheatre District Allianceampaign: In June 2016, The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts launched The Theatre District Campaign to address our organization’s future needs and our strategic long-range goal of a culturally vibrant theatre district and city core.  The campaign demonstrates our commitment to stewarding positive change beyond our current footprint and bringing Worcester to the next level of growth and revitalization.
Goal: The campaign’s goal is to raise $10 million by 2020.  $8.3 million has been raised as of June 2018.
