Hovey Players has been producing provocative and timely theater since 1936. Located near the historic Moody Street in Waltham, MA in the Abbott Memorial Theater, Hovey is among the most intimate performance spaces in New England. Neon lights guide the patrons downstairs and into our 50 seat blackbox; reminiscent of a 1920’s speakeasy.
Hovey Players is delighted to share a new twist on our traditional season announcement!
In 2023-2024, we will be piloting a new hybrid approach, where we independently produce two full productions and partner with other arts organizations to produce additional shows and programming at the theater. Next year, the two traditional Hovey productions will include:
· The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe, directed by Katie Swimm; running November 3 - November 18, 2023
· Appropriate by Branden Jacob-Jenkins, directed by Michelle Aguillon; running January 19 - February 3, 2024
The idea for this new model was partially born out of Hovey's currently limited financial and human capital capacity - but also a recognition of how many companies are looking for space to rehearse or produce their work. If you are looking for a space to rent or know of an organization that might be interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you'd like to volunteer with or donate to Hovey, please check our Stand With Hovey campaign!
