Worcester, MA (PRWEB) November 05, 2013
The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts welcomed its one millionth patron during the Broadway Season kick off of Memphis the Musical. This milestone comes just after the opening of The Hanover Theatre’s sixth season last month.
“I don’t think many people would have predicted we’d hit one million people through the door in only five and a half years,” said The Hanover Theatre’s President and CEO, Troy Siebels. “We work hard to schedule a diverse mix of shows, to attract audiences from a wide geographic area, and to deliver uncommonly great customer service. People find that they can see the same shows here that they’d see in Boston or New York, for less money and with a lot less headache in driving and parking. Once someone’s been here for the first time, they tend to come back and tell their friends.”
Tracy Heinold of Leominster, MA became the theatre's millionth patron on Friday evening during the opener of Memphis the Musical. Mr. Heinold and his wife Nancy are third-year subscribers to The Hanover Theatre's Broadway Series. Mr. Heinold received a congratulatory plaque, theatre tote, Broadway merchandise, and an invitation to The Hanover Theatre’s Franklin Square Society Salon during intermission.
