Send­ing Pray­ers Lighter than Air: Saint Joan of Arc Cath­olic School marked The Feast Day of Our Lady of the Ros­ary Oct. 7 in a very spe­cial way. Their pray­ers were released to heav­ens, car­ried in a bal­loon sculp­ture.

Stu­dents in grades kinder­garten through eighth grade gathered in the school gym­nas­i­um to pray the ros­ary togeth­er. Mem­bers of the stu­dent coun­cil brought in a giant ros­ary con­struc­ted of blue bal­loons to rep­res­ent ros­ary beads, where the Hail Mary is prayed, and gold bal­loons for the pray­ers, Our Father and Glory Be.

Stu­dents in the upper grades led the recit­a­tion of the ros­ary, explain­ing each set of pray­ers that recall events in the lives of bib­lic­al icons, Jesus and Mary. After that, the entire stu­dent body went out­side to release the bal­loons in the school’s park­ing lot. Chil­dren were told to think of spe­cial people and thoughts they wanted to pray for as the bal­loons were released.

“It took a bit for the wind to catch the bal­loons, per­haps some spe­cial pray­ers were said, then off it went,”” said school spokes­per­son Teri Ker­nicki. ““All watched in silence as the giant ros­ary lif­ted again­st the clear blue sky.””

Cel­eb­rate Nation­al Chem­istry Week: The Chag­rin Falls Branch Lib­rary will allow stu­dents in grades three to six to do just that 7 – 8 p.m. Oct. 18 in its pro­gram, Solv­ing Mys­ter­ies through Chem­istry.

Led by volun­teers from the Amer­ic­an Chem­ic­al Soci­ety, fam­il­ies are invited to stay and par­ti­cip­ate. Register at 4402473556. The lib­rary is loc­ated at 100 Orange St. in Chag­rin Falls.

Who’s Afraid of Vir­gina Woolf: What’s more scary than a bad mar­riage? It’s not exactly a haunt­ing, but, Edward Albee’s clas­sic 1960s drama ““Who’s Afraid of Vir­ginia Woolf”” will hit the stage 8 p.m. Oct. 21 at the River Street Play­house, 56 River St. in Chag­rin Falls.

Dir­ec­ted by Claudia Lil­libridge, it stars Rob Wal­ter as George Dar­le­ne Roc­co as Martha, and John Hick­man as Nick and Jen­nifer Betz as Hon­ey.

The intim­ate play­house guar­an­tees that the audi­ence will be not just be close to the stage, but be swept up in the intox­ic­at­ing drama about the break­down of a middle-aged couple’s mar­riage as it unravels with the aid of too much con­sumed alco­hol.

Set on a col­lege cam­pus, char­ac­ters, George and Martha, have a mar­riage defined by vit­ri­olic verbal battles and an emo­tion­al depend­ence upon each oth­er. George is an asso­ci­ate his­tory pro­fess­or and Martha’s father is the uni­ver­sity pres­id­ent. Late one Sat­urday even­ing after a fac­ulty mix­er, Martha invites Nick, an ambi­tious new, bio­logy pro­fess­or and his mousy wife, Hon­ey, over for a night­cap. As the even­ing pro­gresses, Nick and Hon­ey, plied with more alco­hol, get caught up in George and Martha’s games of need­ing to hurt each oth­er and every­one around them.

Albee’s play blends illu­sion with real­ity, as 6 per­form­ances 8 p.m. Fri­days and Sat­urdays through Nov. 5. It is not inten­ded for chil­dren, and includes pro­fan­ity and sexu­al themes.

Tick­ets are $12. Con­tact or the box office at 4402478955, or stop in at 40 River St. 1 – 6 p.m. Monday through Sat­urday.
