A legacy of community support

The opening of The Hanover Theatre in 2008 was the culmination of an ambitious vision and the generosity of many individuals and organizations. That legacy of community support continues today through our supporters.    As the heart of a thriving cultural scene and an economic engine for a revitalized downtown Worcester, The Hanover Theatre has had a transformative impact across Central Mass. Our supporters are at the heart of everything we do, from our annual production of A Christmas Carol to our Conservatory and engagement programs that serve thousands of young people each year.
