WORCESTER – The Worcester Center for Performing Arts announced that Troy Siebels, the president and CEO since its opening in 2008, will step down and transition to another role with the organization.

The Worcester Center for Performing Arts is the nonprofit organization that owns and operates the Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts.

Siebels said he is “working with our board of directors on a leadership transition that will allow me to focus on curating and booking performances on our main stage and on Carroll Plaza.”

Since the opening of the Hanover Theatre, Siebels has led the organization’s establishment of a vibrant conservatory, introducing the BrickBox Theater at the Jean McDonough Arts Center (JMAC), the formation of The Hanover Theatre Repertory, and the creation of the stage on Francis R. Carroll Plaza.

Siebels also led the annual direction and adaption of “A Christmas Carol.” Over 260,000 patrons, including 65,000 students, have seen the annual production. Auditions for the 17th annual production of “A Christmas Carol” begin on June 24.

“Troy’s care and commitment for The Hanover Theatre and his impact on the broader Worcester community is so evident,” said Hanover Theatre Board Chair Kellie Thibodeau. “Troy is humble, inspired and focused on making a meaningful difference in this community.”
