4th Annual Adopt-A-School Program

As we seek innovative ways to fulfill our mission of fostering a love and appreciation for the performing arts in audiences of today and tomorrow, Kinky Boots presented the perfect opportunity for us to collaborate with school administrators and teachers on a curriculum-based arts integration program. Over a period of several weeks, all South High students participated in lessons within each subject that incorporated Kinky Boots’ themes, historical and sociological elements, artistic aspects and musical score. Around the lobby, you will notice several displays featuring students work related to this project including poetry, essays and art installations.

The Hanover Theatre partnered with the national tour of Kinky Boots and South High Community School for our 4th Annual Adopt-A-School Program. South High, located in downtown Worcester has a student population of 1200 individuals from 70 different countries, many of whom experience live theatre for the very first time through this initiative.

Ballet Arts Worcester’s Jennifer Agbay trained students to perform a musical number from the show earlier this week. Dance captains from the national tour made a visit to the school on Wednesday to offer coaching to the students. During the finale of the student matinee performance, select students will perform this choreography in the aisles. In addition, cast members from the show visited the school, spoke with the students and saw the amazing work happening in classrooms in preparation for the show. To ensure that all students could attend this live production, the Durham Bus Company provided free transportation to and from the student matinee performance this week.

I feel a sense of pride knowing that our children and grandchildren will walk though these doors and be magically transported by the cultural offerings and by the building itself.” - Mary C.
