The hammers stopped pounding, the hard hats came off, and opening night arrived on cue.

Somehow, everything was ready.

It was March 14, 2008, and the magic hasn’t stopped re-appearing at the Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts since singer/actor Bernadette Peters raised the proverbial curtain on the place that fine Friday evening.

In its eight years, the Hanover has proved itself nothing short of a star player on the downtown stage [the global stage, too, having been ranked 33rd in a list of the world’s top theaters in 2012 — at the tender age of 4]. The gleaming theater is an example of vision and excellence that does Worcester proud. And, as exemplified by a major expansion underway, it’s still reimagining itself.

Happy Birthday to Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts!
