Hanover Theatre & Conservatory

Sensory-friendly performances are unique theatre experiences that those impacted by autism or other sensitivities can attend without stress or self-consciousness. With guidance and training from Autism Alliance, The Hanover Theatre has completed the Autism Welcoming Initiative℠ training and is pleased to be recognized as an Autism Welcoming Partner through the organization.  Accommodations of support will be provided, including a quiet area for individuals and families that need a break from the experience where staff and volunteers can assist patrons’ needs. We are thrilled to join Hanover Theatre into our Autism Welcoming community. Since opening in 2008, The Hanover Theatre has entertained more than two million guests with Broadway musicals, comedy headliners, music, dance, and more. POLLSTAR consistently ranks The Hanover Theatre as one of the top theatres in the world. The award-winning historic theatre continues to establish its place as a world-class center for the performing arts, a venue for local cultural and civic organizations, and a catalyst for the revitalization of downtown Worcester.
