Young people at Wesley House Thursday rehearsed to get ready for a play presentation.
The youth theatre group will be starring in "The Duchess, the Tea Party, and Tess", written by Anne B. McKee, Meridian playwright and teaching artist for the Mississippi Arts Commission roster.
McKee is also directing the play she wrote about ten years ago.
"If one child is inspired, one child, is inspired by anything of the performing arts, then it's worth our time to come out and work with them," McKee said.
McKee said the play teaches that what you see is not as important as what you feel in your heart.
