With Easter around the corner, local churches are gearing up for their annual plays.

The Duluth Gospel Tabernacle held rehearsals over the weekend. William Sorensen of Duluth is playing Jesus, which he said is a difficult role to fill. He said he's glad his part doesn't require any singing, though.

Sorensen said the play tells the traditional Easter story with a twist.

"It depicts Jesus' life and his ministry," he said. "But the thing about it is, it's got a really good love story about a Roman soldier and a Jewish girl and it talks about how he chooses to follow Jesus instead of serving Caesar."

The play will be showing at 6:30 p.m. on April 11, 12 and 13.
