Event Description

"This was such a captivating experience. 10/10. Already recommended to a friend!"

"Clever framing device. Great use of the space. Terrific performance. Very enjoyable!"

"I loved the theater set up and felt like a VIP with drinks and chocolates waiting."

The Hanover Theatre is proud to launch THT Repertory with the first indoor, socially-distanced performance to be approved by Actors' Equity Association in Massachusetts. Generously co-sponsored by The Club at Rockland Trust and Worcester Academy, the Edgar Allan Poe Double Header features "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Cask of Amontillado" in the new Worcester BrickBox Theater at the Jean McDonough Arts Center, a program of The Worcester Cultural Coalition operated in partnership with The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts.

Seated cabaret-style and staged as a séance, audiences will conjure the narrators of Poe’s stories to “visit” through the medium of a single actor: THT Rep’s artistic director, Olivia D’Ambrosio Scanlon, who also directs the piece. In the BrickBox, audiences of 20 or less will enjoy an hour-long evening with bubbly provided by Julio's Liquors and individually wrapped dark chocolates pre-set at their tables.

All patrons will be required to wear masks and have temperatures checked at the door. As part of our taking responsibility to ensure the safety and well being of our staff and creative team, we are pleased to announce St. Vincent Hospital as the COVID-19 testing partner for The Hanover Theatre.

Performances are available for $2,500 by private booking only, either in the BrickBox or at a private residence. For more information on this one-of-a-kind theatre-going opportunity, including information on our extensive safety protocols, please read our FAQs or watch a walk-through of the venue.
