A full house gives performers a standing ovation at The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts

"The Hanover Theatre generosity gave members of our community, who likely would not have had the opportunity to experience a true holiday classic, not only a phenomenal performance but in a spectacular venue, too.  The Hanover Theatre helped United Way of Central MA fulfill its mission of connecting people and resources to improve the community."

- Tim Gavin, CEO, United way of Central MA

"Participating in UNUM's Student Critics Program last year was an immense learning experience.  It was an honor to take part in a program that celebrates theatre and writing.  Never having watched a Broadway performance before I was inspired by the beauty it gave me an admiration not only for theatre but for critical writing."

- Stefani Falkowski, Junior at Burncoat High School

"During the Youth Summer Program, the classes were great because they gave the "I'm in a theatre camp" feeling, while covering all the basics and creating bonds between all the cast members."

- Shauna Noone, Undergraduate Theatre Major at Clark University

"I've never experienced a live show like that, for me, it's something to remember.  Thank you very much."

- Resident, Hector Reyes House, Worcester

"Thank you so much for donating the Christmas Carol tickets!  Being able to see the play was like icing on a cake for them, after taking about a month to read the book for most of them, this was their first time attending a Broadway production and they were thrilled by the opportunity.  Thank you again for a wonderful night."

- Sandy Kelly, English Second Language Support, Worcester East Middle School

"The donation of 50 tickets to the Boys & Girls Club made it possible for staff and kids to see a professional theatre production - we wouldn't have had this opportunity without the generosity of The Hanover Theatre and United Way.  Thank you for making our holiday season special!"

- Molly Sullivan, Social Recreation Director, Boys & Girls Club

"We wanted to thank you for the experience of sending the men from Hector Reyes House and the staff to see "A Christmas Carol."  Not one of them, including staff, had ever been to a play.  It was truly the best experience you could have given these men, let alone during the Christmas season.  Words cannot say enough for how grateful we were to have gotten these tickets."

- Matilde Castiel, MD, Executive Director of Latin American Health Alliance

"...The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts stands as a beacon to what is possible and provides a tangible example of the positive momentum that is building to support the future of this region."

- Christopher Collins, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, UNUM
