Scrooge gives back


Join the Indiana Repertory Theatre for Scrooge Gives Back on November 8 from 11 – 2 PM at 140 W. Washington Street. This annual event allows our nonprofit the chance to support other nonprofits in Indy. The IRT invites the community to donate to the Versiti Blood Center of Indiana and The Salvation Army as they collect their most needed items this holiday season.

Donors will receive one free ticket to select A Christmas Carol performances and can purchase up to four additional tickets at 25% off. To receive this offer, donors must give blood to the Versiti Indiana Blood Center or donate items to The Salvation Army with a recommended donation value (or monetary gift) of $25.

Schedule an appointment here to donate blood, or simply email Courtney Howay at choway@versiti.org to schedule an appointment for you!

The Salvation Army will have an Angel Tree ready for adoptions, and be collecting items for "Forgotten Angels" who are not adopted this year. Most needed items include twin bedding, popular toys, children's clothing and shoes, and baby items (especially diapers).

Select A Christmas Carol performances include:

  • November 16 | Performance at 3 PM
  • November 23 | Performance at 3 PM
  • November 29 | Performance at 5 PM
  • November 30 | Performance at 3 PM
