Condit: Q&A with The Hanover Theatre’s CEO and President
Sunday, June 21, 2015
The 2014-2015 season was full of diverse shows that brought the best in Broadway, dance, comedians, music and family entertainment to what has become one of Pollstar’s top theatres in the world…right here in Worcester. In addition to the blockbuster hits, community favorites, and traditional favorites, everyone at the theatre is thrilled by the impact of our educational and outreach programs. Initiatives like our Adopt-A-School program with South High Community School have sparked a passion in people of all ages to embrace a life-long love of the arts and a strong sense of community, much like Mr. Poli envisioned back in the early 1900s.
It is obvious that the people, companies, foundations, and other cultural institutions support the theatre’s mission while also helping to stimulate the development and successful launch of a vibrant theatre district. The theatre’s purchase of 551 Main Street is a major commitment and opportunity to expand our operations and educational programming. (For more information on how you or your organization can get involved, please contact our development department.)
The evening ended with a variety of questions from the audience, ranging from questions about Broadway tours to how we can do an even better job of spreading the word about some of the unique, world-class performances that come to our theatre. Overall, volunteers and staff members were enthusiastic about the past and very much looking forward to a fabulous year ahead. Listen to Behind the Scenes with The Hanover Theatre Saturday from 1-2pm on WCRN AM830 to listen to excerpts from the Q&A session.
