FRANKLIN, Pa. (EYT) – Proceeds from this weekend’s musical plays at the Barrow-Civic Theatre will benefit a local homeless shelter.

‘Good King Wenceslas’ will open at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, January 5, and will be showcased again on Saturday, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2:00 p.m.

The musical play—based on the familiar Christmas Carol, “Good King Wenceslas”—tells the story of the real Wenceslas and how he helped the poor and homeless of his time.

Ticket cost is $15.

All proceeds from the show will be donated to the Emmaus Haven of Venango, a temporary homeless shelter for men that encourages them to rebuild their lives, personally, and spiritually, in a warm and safe setting.

The play is written by local composer and playwright, John Krumich. It’s directed by Shawn Clerkin and produced by Beth Orris.

Tickets are on sale at the box office, open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Tickets may also be purchased online or by calling 814-437-3440.

The Barrow-Civic Theatre is located at 1223 Liberty Street in Franklin.
