The opening of The Hanover Theatre in 2008 was the culmination of an ambitious vision and the dedication of an entire community.

A Connected Community

Today, THT is the hub of a vibrant downtown cultural district attracting visitors from across central MA and beyond, thanks to the partnership of many generous individuals, organizations and businesses. 

The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory is a community effort. We’re constantly striving to live our mission and vision. From partnering with local businesses to providing multiple educational programs for our youth, getting the top Broadway tours of today to future programming on the new plaza, our ambitions are mighty. 

Creating Lasting Business Relationships

From promotions and advertising to mainstage sponsorships, we strive to create maximum value for our business partners with unequaled visibility and outstanding service. With our uniquely loyal and supportive audience and our growing geographic, we offer a wide range of opportunities and a flexible, creative approach.
