The Theatre District Campaign

In June 2016, The Hanover Theatre launched the Theatre District Campaign to acquire and renovate the 551 Main Street building, develop and open our new conservatory for the performing arts, furnish, equip and program the new Francis R. Carroll Plaza being constructed by the city of Worcester in front of the theatre and create a fund to support creative activities on the new plaza and throughout the district.
The campaign takes a broader view of the role the theatre plays in creating a 21st century cultural destination.  It also demonstrates our commitment to stewarding positive change beyond our current footprint with the vision of a culturally vibrant theatre district and city core. 

Play your part in revitalizing downtown Worcester.
