Bank of America Gifts $250K to Worcester’s Hanover Theatre

Council member Bank of America has donated $250,000 to the Hanover Theatre in Worcester, MA, to build an outdoor theater. The bank has been a long time benefactor of the theatre and will have the honor of naming the new outdoor plaza.

Bank of America’s generous donation brings the Hanover Theatre closer to achieving their goal of transforming their surrounding neighborhood into Worcester’s Theatre District. The $250,000 donation comes in collaboration with the City’s Main Street Reimagined project to restore the street’s public space, including new sidewalks, traffic lights, lighting fixtures, and more. Hanover Theatre President and CEO Troy Siebels has prioritized a strong collaborative relationship with the City of Worcester and their respective downtown projects.

“The Hanover Theatre touches well over a quarter million patrons every year and is a staple in the local arts community,” said Ed Shea, Bank of America’s Central Massachusetts market president. “In addition to the positive impact that performing arts has on the community, the improvements to the theater also play an important role in the rebirth of downtown Worcester.”

The Council commends Bank of America for their generous donation to improve the Hannover Theatre and the City of Worcester.
