GREENSBURG, Kan. (AP) -- Some Greensburg residents will mark the fifth anniversary of a tornado that nearly wiped out their town with a play based on the experience.

The play, called "Rooted: The Greensburg Odyssey," is the creation of author Marcia Cebulska of Topeka. It is sponsored by The Cornerstone Theater Company and the William Inge Center for the Arts in Independence.

A cast of 22 will present the play at 7 p.m. Saturday in the fellowship hall of First United Methodist Church in Greensburg.

Producer Lois Lessman told The Dodge City Daily Globe (http://bit.ly/K8Np8u0 the group wanted to perform the play when Greensburg's Twilight Theater was completed. But the group decided to go ahead with a dramatic reading of the play to mark the anniversary, even though the theater is not ready.
