Donors have a direct impact on everything we do.

Support our mission

Membership is our thank-you to any donor who makes a gift of $75 or more each year. As a not-for-profit organization, we rely on tax-deductible donations to maintain our historic theatre, underwrite our school and community engagement programs, provide need-based conservatory scholarships, and even support our mainstage season–ticket sales only cover a portion of the cost for these activities.

In return, we gratefully offer members an array of benefits that will enhance your experience every time you walk through our doors, from advance notice of new shows and invitations to behind-the-scenes events, to complimentary parking and access to the historic Franklin Square Salon (for Franklin Square Society Members). 

The Hanover Theatre was created with tremendous support from the community, and our members continue that legacy with their annual contributions – their investment makes our work possible, and that is something to celebrate.

We feel fortunate to be able to support the Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, not only annually as members of the Franklin Square Society, but by being members of the 1926 Legacy Society. By doing so, we trust that the efforts of The Hanover Theatre will continue to enhance the community, not only through its productions and programs, but also by creating a truly bright spot in the city of Worcester.
