Support Us

Worcester Center for Performing Arts is a registered not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, which owns and operates The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts.  Your support is critically important in maintaining our historically significant theatre and providing education and outreach programs that benefit our community.  All contributions are 100% tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

The Hanover Theatre Resiliency Fund

More than 80% of The Hanover Theatre's income comes from ticket sales, fees and other revenues related to performances. The loss of that revenue will have a significant impact on the theatre. We will emerge from this difficult time, resilient and prepared for the future, but we need your help. Please consider a contribution to The Hanover Theatre Resiliency Fund today as we navigate these unprecedented and uncertain times.
