The Hanover Theatre & Conservatory Fund
The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory Fund provides unrestricted support for the maintenance of our historic theatre, enables us to respond to unanticipated opportunities and urgent needs, and contributes to our long-term sustainability. Gifts to The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory Fund are an especially effective way to show your support.
Access to the Arts
The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory is committed to providing access to the arts for youth and families who could not otherwise afford to participate. The Access to the Arts Fund allows us to provide subsidized tickets to school groups, outreach programs for people of all ages and abilities, scholarships for conservatory classes, our annual Adopt-A-School Program and much, much more!
The Hanover Theatre Repertory
A new initiative, THT Rep produces theatrical events made in and for Worcester, with a focus on classics, modern classics and classics-inspired works. THT Rep not only furthers the mission of The Hanover Theatre at large, but also helps manifest the vision of the BrickBox Theater as a home for professional plays in Worcester, filling a void that has existed since the closing of Worcester Foothills Theatre in 2007.
Through December 31, 2023, the McDonough Foundation will match your donation, dollar for dollar, up to $1.5 million. Right now, you can double the impact of your support and help turn $1.5 million into $3 million. Your gift to THT Rep will allow us to pursue inclusive casting, set equitable ticket prices and choose titles that work well for the general public and our student audiences.
Each year, The Hanover Theatre Conservatory provides need-based scholarships for classes and programs that offer performance opportunities and training in theatre, dance, music and technical theatre & design. Gifts to the Scholarship Fund help to make these transformative experiences available to young people who would otherwise be unable to participate. Gifts of $1,000 or more are eligible for named scholarship recognition.
Donald Phipps Mighty Wurlitzer
The staff and members of the board feel fortunate to have been given The Mighty Wurlitzer, the largest of its kind in New England. As stewards of this fabulous gift, it is our responsibility to properly maintain the organ and create opportunities where it can be shared with patrons and the greater community.
