Condit: The Hanover Theatre Accepting Applications for Student Critic Program

Sunday, September 20, 2015

 

The Hanover Theatre offers a free educational workshop for high school students who would like attend Broadway touring productions while improving their writing and comprehension skills. High school students are encouraged to apply for this popular and prestigious program and will be selected for participation based on meeting the requirements and criteria outlined in their completed application, letter of recommendation, and essay. All applications must be mailed, faxed, or delivered to Meghan Montaner, director of education, no later than Monday, October 5, 2015.

Students selected to participate in The Hanover Theatre’s Student Critic Program will attend The Producers on October 24, Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas on November 7, A Christmas Carol on December 19, Ragtime on January 30, 42nd Street on February 20, and Annie on March 12.  They gather an hour before the matinee performance and remain for an hour discussion with theatre critic Paul Kolas following each performance.  Students are expected to submit a draft of their review to their teacher (appointed by their school) by the Monday following each show.  Final reviews are then e-mailed to The Hanover Theatre by that Wednesday at 5pm.  New this year, selected reviews will be posted to the theatre’s blog.

Please note that there is very limited space in this free education program, so participation is limited to one year.  In addition, if participants miss a performance or do not submit their review in a timely fashion, an alternate student will be asked to replace them.  The Hanover Theater will notify students of their acceptance via e-mail by 5pm on Friday, October 9, 2015.  

For more information about The Hanover Theatre’s educational programs, visit TheHanoverTheatre.org.  Look for news about expanded educational programming throughout the year by signing up for the weekly e-mail and like them on Facebook.

About The Hanover Theatre

The Hanover Theatre continues to draw over 170,000 patrons annually with world-class performances and headlining acts including Broadway hits (“Les Misérables,” “Mary Poppins,” “Jersey Boys”); comedians (Steve Martin, Jay Leno, Daniel Tosh); musical acts (Neil Young, Aretha Franklin, John Legend, Diana Ross); and everything in between (“A Christmas Carol,” Maya Angelou, Rudy Giuliani, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre). Consistently ranked by POLLSTAR as one of the Top Theatres in the World, the theatre opened in March of 2008 following a $32 million historic renovation. Over the last seven seasons, the theatre has established its place as a world-class performing arts venue, acting as a catalyst for the economic development of downtown Worcester. In 2015 the theatre finalized the purchase of a vacant, three-floor former office building with street-level retail space at 551 Main Street. The building will ultimately house office space for theatre administration, function areas, a restaurant on the ground floor and an educational space on the lower level. The building is set to open in 2016. 

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