Tall One Outreach Ministries presents Spare the Rod, Spoil the Child, on Nov. 5, 2016 at The Lincoln Theatre in Washington, D.C. Spare the Rod, Spoil the Child focuses on taboo issues that are often ignored in the Black Community.Spare the Rod, Spoil the Child is a professional play that speaks to all ages, said Shirley Caesar, gospel legend and 2016 recipient of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I was particularly amazed to see young people so accurately depicting what our youth are going through. Everyone should see this exceptional play. Your life will never be the same. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will laugh again. You need to see it.In this gripping and engaging dramatic piece, a woman simply known as Grandma serves as the pillar of her surroundings. Her sons family is in crisis, and those within her neighborhood are drowning in chronic troubles of their own. Throughout the scenes of the play, we see the importance of family sticking together through peer pressure, abuse and many other dysfunctions.Its going to be a family affair with amazing talent gracing the stage including LeAndria Johnson, an American Gospel music singer, songwriter, recording artist and actress. LeAndrias career has garnered multiple awards including a Grammy Award, Dove Awards, and Stellar Awards, and, she is known as Winner of BETs Sundays Best. LeAndria is acknowledged and honored by millions across the globe as the star of Preachers of Atlanta on the Oxygen network and her many significant contributions to the arts and entertainment industries.Gospel singing sensation Shawn McLemore, known for his hit single I believe with James Fortune, comedian and actress Trina Jeffrie aka Sister Cantaloupe will join with LeAndria, providing viewers with an unforgettable experience.A must see story, the play is alternately a moving drama and a sidesplitting comedy that will be talked about in families to come, said Dr. Mildred Summerville, producer of the show.Summerville and Pr
