Francis R. Carroll Plaza Project

Please be advised that the Francis R. Carroll Plaza directly in front of the theatre is currently under construction as we fulfill our goals for the Theatre District Campaign. The new plaza is being constructed by the city of Worcester and The Hanover Theatre will program performances and other creative activities in this new outdoor space once it is completed.

We are excited to see the new design for the plaza take shape and look forward to the opportunities it presents for diverse programming and further activation of the downtown.

Walkways from the Federal Square Parking Garage, as well as public sidewalks, remain open and accessible for visitors to the theatre and conservatory. Be sure to allow extra time for traffic and parking during the construction period. Thank you for your understanding.
