The play, by Jean and Walter Kerr, is adapted from the novel by Franz Werfel, a Jewish writer who was protected from the Nazis by the people of Lourdes, France. Werfel promised St. Bernadette that he would tell her story to the world if he survived the war.

Senior Sarah Reis will portray St. Bernadette, who was canonized in 1933, on this 130th anniversary of her death.

The cost for tickets at the door is $7.

The school is located at 1285 Zettler Road. Call (614) 237-5421.
