Spare The Rod, Spoil The Child Starring Pastor Shirley Caesar is coming to Johnny Mercer Theater July 29, 2023!
In this gripping and engaging dramatic piece, a woman known as "Grandma" is the pillar of her surroundings. Her son's family is in crisis and those within her neighborhood are drowning in chronic troubles of their own. Yet, through it all, Grandma seeks God on behalf of those who are not spiritually inclined enough to seek Him for themselves. Even those who resent her ultimately end up on Grandma's prayer list. And when the walls seem to come tumbling down, they know who to turn to for guidance and sound counsel. It's not always advice that they want to hear, but it is consistently the precise word needed to steer them in the right direction.
High drama, bad karma, a supportive pastor, and a praying grandma all come together to make Spare the Rod, Spoil the Child a must-see theatrical production. Infused with foot-stomping gospel music, this soul-stirring show will warm the heart, tickle the funny bones, and uplift the spirits of those who experience it.
