The Hanover Theatre Repertory Returns with 2022-2023 Lineup

Born in response to the pandemic, The Hanover Theatre Repertory (THT Rep) established itself as a new initiative of The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts (THTC). THT Rep's 2020-2021 offerings included three wildly different projects: The Edgar Allan Poe Double Header, A Christmas Carol: Reimagined and Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, which played free and open to the public on the Worcester Common.

Looking ahead to the 2022-2023 season, THT Rep will return with a fully staged production of Shakespeare's Macbeth, a limited run remount of The Edgar Allan Poe Double Header, a staged reading of Arthur Miller's The Crucible featuring an all-female cast and a party-performance called The Marvelous Party, inspired by Noël Coward and featuring popular numbers from the musical theatre canon and beyond.

Plans for THT Rep's 2022-2023 lineup have been in development since the close of Julius Caesar. During that same time, THTC's team reopened The Hanover Theatre itself, continued the robust programming of The Hanover Theatre Conservatory and brought the new BrickBox Theater fully online. With all those moving parts, and with COVID continuing its unpredictable course, the progress made on THT Rep was methodical, if nonlinear.

"Troy Siebels [president and CEO, THTC] and I worked through at least six iterations of what THT Rep's 2022-2023 could look like," explains Livy Scanlon, Artistic Director of THT Rep. "I'm thrilled with the lineup we've settled on. It affirms THT Rep's commitment to creating dynamic theatrical events focused on classics and classics-inspired works. It will allow the community to get to know me better as an artistic director and, more importantly, for me to get to know them as an audience."

"THT Rep not only furthers the mission of The Hanover Theatre at large," Siebels adds, "but also helps manifest the vision of the BrickBox Theater as a home for professional straight plays in Worcester."
