The last time John Whitten recalls being in a play, he was in elementary school.

The next time will be a little more challenging.

Whitten is portraying Jesus in the Easter pageant being staged by Pioneer Drive Baptist Church. The production began over the weekend and continues April 18-20 at the Abilene Convention Center.

“It’s very humbling, emotional,” Whitten said. “I feel very inadequate.”

Not only does Whitten have the lead role, he will be making his first appearance in the pageant. Since 2006, the church has presented the pageant every two years.
