In June 2016, The Hanover Theatre launched the Theatre District Campaign to acquire and renovate the 551 Main Street building in order to develop and open our new conservatory for the performing arts, furnish, equip and program the new Francis R. Carroll Plaza being constructed by the city of Worcester in front of the theatre and create a fund to support creative activities on the new plaza and throughout the district. We are pleased to report that presently the Theatre District Campaign has raised more than $9,530,000 of its goal of $10,000,000. The campaign takes a broader view of the role the theatre plays in creating a 21st century cultural destination. It also demonstrates our commitment to stewarding positive change beyond our current footprint with the vision of a culturally vibrant theatre district and city core.

Dear theatre patron, This is a letter I never wanted to write. For eight years I have had the great good fortune of being your “Scrooge.” Each year I have climbed the mountain that this most special role in this most special production with this most special collection of talent has afforded me. Each year I have discovered more about Mr. Scrooge and about myself and about this “sledgehammer of social justice” as Charles Dickens described his carol. At no time in our country’s history have we needed to be reminded that a life that is lived in a counting house is a life of building enormous chains for ourselves. That greed does not bring riches or pleasure, it only perpetuates injustice. But, at bottom, A Christmas Carol is a story of redemption. After a long night of darkness and fear, Scrooge awakes to the most joyous morning of his life. As for myself, playing Mr. Scrooge, has given me the most joyous mornings of my life. And for that I am so grateful for the wonderful gift that you have all given to me: those up here with me on the stage, those in the wings, those in the box office, in the administrative offices, those in the rehearsal room and you out there in the darkened auditorium who have fed me with your joy, your laughter and your love. Thank you. God bless us every one.

GIVING TO THE ARTS MATTERS. Worcester Center for Performing Arts, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, owns and operates The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.


Living our Mission To foster a love and appreciation for the performing arts in audiences of today and tomorrow. The Access to the Arts (ATTA) Fund continues to be a vital source of support for community outreach programs, providing access to the performing arts to youth and families who cannot afford to participate. Adopt-A-School: On Your Feet! In the spring of 2019, we celebrated the sixth year of our Adopt-A-School Program using arts to enhance the curriculum in our public schools. Superintendent Maureen Binienda and the faculty at both South and Burncoat high schools partnered with us to incorporate the themes, history and sociological impacts of a Broadway show into the curriculum across every subject in preparation for both schools (2,400 students) to see the Broadway tour of On Your Feet! Actors visited the schools the day before the performance and the tour gave students special permission to perform in the aisles during the show’s finale. Many of the students only experience live theatre through this program. We are grateful to the Worcester Public Schools, city of Worcester and Durham Bus Company for continuing to collaborate with us on this program. This program is made possible by the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts, the McDonough Foundation, Greater Worcester Community Foundation, Lamoureux Pagano Associates, The 200 Foundation and our Access to the Arts donors. We thank them for making this program possible every year. At an annual cost of nearly $150,000, this program carries quite a price tag but the experience and impact left on the students is priceless.

Student Matinees Last season, over 16,000 area students attended student matinees of A Christmas Carol, The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical, THURGOOD, Hamlet, The Stories of Peter & the Wolf and Hansel & Gretel, On Your Feet! and The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show. Student matinee tickets are significantly discounted to make these experiences possible for local schools. In-School Workshops In 2019, conservatory teaching artists led 44 in-school workshops at middle and high schools throughout Worcester. A majority of those workshops were done in connection with a curriculum based program entitled Culture LEAP and our Goddard Scholars partnership with Sullivan Middle School. Conservatory Scholarships As we continue to increase our conservatory offerings and expand our reach, financial assistance has become even more important. In the 2018-2019 season, we offered over $50,000 in scholarships representing a $30,000 increase in scholarship funding from the previous year. These scholarships are made possible through our Access to the Arts Fund and by generous donations from supporters. We hope to continue offering financial assistance so that all students, regardless of their socioeconomic background, can benefit from arts education.

Thank you to the Access to the Arts donors who believe in our mission of inclusion and community. Contributions to the fund include individual gifts and foundation grants.

THEATRE POLICIES & OTHER HELPFUL INFORMATION The following is presented to inform our patrons and to maintain an orderly theatrical environment and experience. These policies notwithstanding, management will always strive to be fair, ethical and understanding of our patrons’ needs. For answers to frequently asked questions visit TheHanoverTheatre.org/faq. Accessible Seating and ADA Provisions: The Hanover Theatre is committed to providing access and an enjoyable visit for 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, limited mobility, etc. Assistive Listening Devices: Devices are available. 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. Booking Protect: Protect your investment by participating in Booking Protect, a ticket insurance option. You can choose to select Booking Protect as an add-on before finalizing your transaction. Booking Protect is only available at the time of purchase and allows you to receive a full refund of the purchase price should you or anyone in your party be unable to attend due to injury, illness, adverse weather conditions and more. Box Office Hours of Operation: (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 prior to curtain time. Tickets may be purchased online 24/7 at TheHanoverTheatre.org. By telephone, call the box office at 877.571.7469 during standard hours of operation. Visit or mail the box office at: 2 Southbridge Street, Worcester, MA 01608 E-mail: boxoffice@thehanovertheatre.org 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 our patrons by covering lobby signage which lists the standard policy. All members of the press or media must receive advance authorization from the PR dept. (PR@thehanovertheatre.org) to use cameras or recording devices inside the theatre and must display identification upon arrival. Cell Phones: Out of respect to the performers and to fellow audience members, please remember to silence all cell phones while in the theatre. Also, please note, there is no telephone which is manned throughout the performance. Please be sure to leave your cellular number with anyone who may need to reach you during an emergency, and in the event of an emergency please take your call in the lobby. Children: All patrons MUST have a valid ticket. Parents are discouraged from bringing children under five years of age to performances which are not specifically oriented to children. Parents must remove any disruptive children from the theatre into the lobby. For these reasons, and for the comfort of all audience members, please consider carefully whether it is appropriate for you to bring children under five to the theatre.

Concessions: Please do not bring outside food and drinks to the theatre. Snacks and beverages are available for sale in the lobby. First Aid: Please speak with the house manager or any of the ushers if you need first aid or have any sort of accident or medical emergency. Insurance regulations require that such instances be documented immediately. Gift Certificates: These are available in any denomination and are available online, by calling or visiting the box office and may be used by the recipient in full or partial payment for event tickets or conservatory classes. Groups: Attending the theatre is even more fun when you bring a group. Groups of 10 or more may be eligible for a discount. For information, contact Amy Osborn at 508.471.1763. Inclement Weather Policy: It is generally impossible for touring shows and performances to be rescheduled, so we do not cancel events due to inclement weather. As with other touring performances and sporting events, we are unable to refund tickets. In extreme weather conditions we will do our best to exchange subscriber, FLEX package and member tickets to an alternate performance, if applicable. The theatre strongly recommends that you add on ticket insurance at the time of ticket purchase through Booking Protect to protect your purchase. Lost and Found: Management is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Items found at the theatre will be held by the house manager. If you have lost an item, please contact the box office as soon as possible to make a report. You will then be contacted if the item has been found. Retrieval of the item is the responsibility of the customer. Items not claimed within 30 days will be donated or disposed of without compensation. Prohibited items and activities which are prohibited include (but are not limited to): smoking, weapons, outside food or drinks, camera or recording devices, cell phones not silenced or set to vibrate, laser pointers, disruptive or abusive language, pets (except those assisting persons with disabilities), and persons exhibiting intoxication or drug use. Offenders may be removed from the theatre without compensation.| Rental of Theatre and Event Spaces: The Hanover Theatre is available for appropriate organizations and activities. Please contact our special events coordinator at 508.471.1799 or specialevents@ thehanovertheatre.org for further information. Resale of Tickets for Profit: Ticket holders may on occasion be in a position where they have purchased tickets that they later cannot personally use and will want to donate, give, trade or sell these tickets to friends or acquaintances. Management does not discourage private transactions of this nature. However, we may take appropriate actions to thwart the organized resale of tickets for profit by third parties, which we do not condone. The public is advised to be careful purchasing tickets from individuals they do not know personally, as such tickets may be void and in such cases admission to the theatre will be denied without compensation. Standing Room: All persons entering the theatre must have a valid ticket, and are not allowed to stand in the back or aisles. Ushers: The Hanover Theatre uses a dedicated and trained force of volunteer ushers that seat and assist our guests. If you would like to volunteer, please email volunteer@thehanovertheatre.org.

We offer ASL sponsored by FLEXcon and audio description services provided by Audio Journal at specific performances during our season. We offer wheelchair accessibility at all shows. Visit TheHanoverTheatre.org/accessibility for complete information.
