Bill Hanney is honored and proud to have been responsible for the re-opening of the nationally renowned North Shore Music Theatre in 2010.  He began his career in show business at age 19, leasing and developing movie theaters, including his first multiplex in Quincy, Massachusetts. Before long, he was booking rock shows (Jefferson Starship, Rush) and other types of live entertainment, which eventually led to the presenting and producing of Broadway productions. One such show was an appearance by the legendary mime artist, Marcel Marceau. As president of Broadway Productions, Bill presented national tours such as Annie, Amadeus, Dancin', Peter Pan, Rocky Horror Picture Show and Mark Twain starring Hal Holbrook, throughout New England including Worcester, Springfield, Portland, Maine and Boston. Aside from his work reopening North Shore Music Theatre, one of Bill's crowning achievements was the 2007 purchase and re-opening of Theatre by the Sea, a landmark 500 seat professional summer theatre and restaurant, which is now in its seventh successful year of operation in Matunuck, RI. Theatrebythesea.com Throughout his career, Bill has stayed focused on his movie theatre chain having bought, built, owned, operated and sold more than 30 cinemas. His company, Entertainment Cinemas, currently operates ten movie complexes in four states.  In 2009, Bill was elected President of the Theatre Owners of New England.  Bill's ongoing work to re-open NSMT inspires him to consider acquiring additional performance venues at which he plans to someday share his productions between his theatres.  Bill is a member of the League of Broadway Producers and is currently a Lead Producer on the Broadway-bound revival of Sugar Babies.  Bill has been named to the North Shore Top 100 by the North Shore Chamber of Commerce.   In 2012 he was recognized by both the Beverly Chamber of Commerce and Salem Chamber of Commerce as Business Person of the Year. In addition to his work with NSMT and TBTS, Bill is involved in Broadway' Tony Award-Winning revival of Pippin at the Music Box Theatre. Bill is looking forward to the 2014 Season at North Shore Music Theatre. NSMT.ORG
