ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany native is bringing her first Gospel stage play to her hometown.
Jasmine Green McConico lives in Jonesboro now.
She wrote and is directing "Modern Day: Deeply Rooted."
She said it's a play about love and acceptance for both Christian and non-Christian audiences.
Her upbringing in the church and her life experiences inspired her to write the play.
"It's to teach Christians that our job as Christians is to show compassion and love one another and draw people back to church while realigning the mind set to not be judgmental instead be compassionate," said Jasmine Green McConico Writer/Director .
Tickets are on sale through Ticketmaster and at the Albany Civic Center.
You can see the play August 1st at 7:30 p.m. at the Albany Municipal Auditorium.
