Our new conservatory’s education and outreach programs represent the core of The Hanover Theatre's mission to foster a love and appreciation of the performing arts in audiences of today and tomorrow.  We believe education is a lifelong pursuit, and therefore strive to provide accessible experiences for a diverse population of all ages.

At The Hanover Theatre Conservatory for the Performing Arts, we cultivate individual attention, ignite creativity and inspire confidence. The arts play a vital role in helping individuals develop self-esteem, compassion and problem solving skills. Students who study or participate in the arts have proven academic success. They find their voice and discover new avenues for creative expression. It is our goal to maximize a student’s social and emotional development while introducing them to theatre, dance, music and design. In addition, access to state-of-the-art equipment and hands-on training with industry professionals in our world-class venue allows students to gain real-world experience in the performing arts field.

We invite you to play a role in Act ll of our artistic journey.
