POLICIES + IMPORTANT INFO The following information is presented to inform our patrons and to maintain an orderly and thriving theatrical environment and experience. These policies notwithstanding, management always strive to be fair, ethical and understanding of our patrons’ needs. For other answers to frequently asked questions visit TheHanoverTheatre.org/faq. Accessible Seating: The Hanover Theatre is committed to providing access and an enjoyable visit to persons of different abilities. Spaces are reserved for patrons who use wheelchairs and for their ambulatory companions. When purchasing tickets, please be sure to mention if any special accommodations are required, including low vision, hard of hearing and limited mobility etc. It is the intent of the theatre to comply with all ADA provisions where practical. See page 31 for info. ASL/Audio Description: See page 31 for info. Assistive Listening Devices: Devices are available from the house manager. Please inquire at the box office or ask an usher. These cannot be reserved in advance, but the number of devices available should be sufficient for the usual demand. You will be asked to leave your driver’s license as a deposit when borrowing an assistive listening device. Box Office Hours: (in person and by telephone) Monday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm; Sunday (if there is a performance), noon until 30 minutes after curtain on performance evenings. So that we may best serve patrons attending each event, please avoid visiting the box office to purchase tickets to future events during the hour just prior to curtain time. Cameras (Recording Devices): Our standard policy is that all such devices are prohibited from use in the theatre, and offenders may be ejected without compensation. On rare occasions, specific performers or engagements may request that this policy be suspended, in which case we will advise patrons by covering lobby signage which lists the standard policy.

Therefore, with very rare exceptions, our policy is that the show will go on regardless of the weather as long as the performers are able to perform. Please make travel plans in accordance with anticipated weather conditions, but please DO NOT endanger yourself.
