Since opening in 2008, The Hanover Theatre has entertained more than two million guests with Broadway musicals, comedy headliners, music, dance, and more. The 2,300-seat award-winning historic theatre continues to establish its place as a world-class center for the performing arts. The Hanover Theatre Conservatory provides performance opportunities, classes, and individual instruction in theatre, dance, and technical theatre and design to more than 500 young people and adults from across central Massachusetts each year. Our success has been entirely due to the excellence and dedication of our team members.
It is essential that our mission, "To ignite and nurture a passion for the performing arts in audiences and artists of today and tomorrow," and our vision "to be a dynamic downtown destination where all people can experience the transformative power of the performing arts," be embedded into everything that we do. Similarly, our core values in professionalism, respect for others, collaboration and teamwork, accountability, customer service and interpersonal communication must be a central part of our culture in order for our organization to continue to be successful.
The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory is committed to an environment of mutual respect where equal employment opportunities are available to all applicants and teammates. We acknowledge the presence of implicit bias inherent in systems and practices in our industry and beyond; and our role in working to dismantle those systems. We believe that diversity and inclusion among our teammates is critical to our success. We seek to recruit, develop and retain the most talented people from a diverse candidate pool, and we strongly encourage applications from the BIPOC community.
Worcester Center for Performing Arts, a registered not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, owns and operates The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory and, on behalf of the Worcester Cultural Coalition, manages Worcester’s BrickBox Theater at the Jean McDonough Arts Center.
