The Winter Sanctuary is a local 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to provide a seasonal emergency shelter for the members of our community who experience homelessness. The Sanctuary helps connect guests with resources that empower them to be successful and self-sufficient. The shelter provides warm, clean, well-maintained, and secure facilities for men and women who have had to camp in the open, sleep in cars, or stay with friends or relatives.

“A Christmas Carol” was first presented in 2019 to benefit the Winter Sanctuary with the hope to make this annual performance a tradition in Knox County.

The story has been adapted for the stage by Rev. Scott Elliott of Mount Vernon’s First Congregational United Church of Christ.

Tickets for the show are general admission at $20 for adults, $15 for seniors 65+, and $10 for students of all ages, and are available online or at the door. Performances times are 7 p.m. on Dec. 1-3, with a special gala preceding the Saturday, Dec. 4, show, and 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 4. Gala tickets are $100 and include the show, an hors d’ouevre reception, and one drink ticket.

All proceeds support the Winter Sanctuary.
