WORCESTER – Do you like to laugh? Have fun? Meet new people who have similar interests? All while experiencing new things and getting a great deal? The Hanover Theatre and Bank of America partner to offer discounted tickets on over 20 shows for $20 this season. Plus, there’s always a chance that participants may receive great seats previously on hold when they’re seated on the day of each performance.
On October 14, prepare yourself for The Princess Bride: An Inconceivable Evening with Cary Elwes at The Hanover Theatre, one of the first shows included in the new 20 for $20 program. In this highly anticipated event, fans of the hit film The Princess Bride will join the heroic Westley, actor Cary Elwes, in a behind-the-scenes look at life on and off the set of this classic film in a special Q&A session after the screening.
Founding Director of POW! WOW! Worcester Che Anderson, like many of us, is a huge enthusiast of all things Princess Bride.
Anderson said, “The Princess Bride has been my favorite movie since my mom and grandmother introduced it to me. To have the opportunity to not only belt out every amazing quote at The Hanover Theatre but to also ask Wesley himself some questions is one of the most exciting things I’ve ever had the chance to do,” gushes Anderson about his upcoming role as the Q&A moderator.
Anderson is equally enthusiastic about the 20 for $20 program and the opportunity for him to extend time with friends both before and after shows at a variety of local restaurants and watering holes, many of which are included in the theatre’s gourmet program. When the program was being developed, there was also a lot of positive feedback about a price point that is attractive as well as the excitement associated with potentially having amazing seats. The way it works is that participants select three or more performances from a list of more than 20 upcoming shows for just $20 per ticket and will receive the best available seating the day of the show. For shows with multiple performances, the offer is good for opening nights only.
“At Bank of America, we believe that a thriving arts and culture sector strongly benefits economies and societies,” Ed Shea, Bank of America Worcester market president, said. “We are thrilled to partner with The Hanover Theatre in bringing a young professionals program to the Worcester community and increasing access to the arts to our local students and young people.”
