Kosciusko plans annual passion play


First United Methodist Church of Kosciusko will present its annual passion play, His Last Days, on at 8 p.m. April 9-11.

This year’s presentation will be the 24th consecutive performance of the one-hour outdoor drama written by the Rev. Charles Wiggers. Performed on the church grounds, portrayers in authentic Biblical costumes depict the events of the last days leading to Christ’s crucifixion and ascension. The play is presented each year on Thursday, Friday and Saturday prior to Easter.

No admission is charged, and a nursery is provided. No reservations are necessary. Parking for vehicles, including vans and buses, is located near the church grounds where the drama will take place. Guests might want to bring their own chairs.

First United Methodist Church is located on the corner of East Washington and Natchez streets in Kosciusko. For information, contact the church office at 662-289-1412 or at chur623@bellsouth.net.
