HENRYVILLE, IN (WAVE) - Henryville High School students put on the play, "Acts of God" Sunday. The play was about high school students recovering after a tornado and portrayed how the teens learned to cope after the devastation swept through their town.

In the play, the characters take the audience through a journey, the year after their fictional town was hit by a tornado.

 

The play was very timely performance, given the fact that Henryville is just a little past the one-year mark of its own devastation. Surprisingly, the play was to be picked to be performed before last year's disastrous tornado ravaged Henryville High School. According to theatre director Jolie Lindley, the choice of the play was purely coincidental.

 

"I got the scripts in about three weeks before we got hit by the tornado last year," said Lindley.

 

Some audience members said the play gave them goosebumps and an "eery" feeling. 

 

The Henryville High School theatre department lost sound and light equipment, as well as some stock set pieces in the tornado. Lindley said some of that will be replaced by insurance, but Sunday's show was to raise money to help replace the items.
