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.
