Priest Tyaire presents
Momma’s Baby Boy
“What happens when Momma holds on to her son too long? That’s precisely what we learn as Vivica Fox, Johnny Gill, Nephew Tommy, Jackee’ Harry, Shirley Murdock, “Lil G” from the R & B group Silk, and more unite to tell the story of a how a man is forced to change the life of a “Baby Boy” and turn him into a grown man.
In the 2001 hit movie “Baby Boy”, Jody plays a young man who resides and depends on his mother preventing her from having her own life. In this modern day adaptation of this classic movie, Autumn is forced to turn the life of her son over to her new fiancé who is committed to turning her baby boy into a man. Autumn’s son, Jody played by Lil G, is a spoiled young man who blames everyone else for his problems and his inability to become a man. Jody is unemployed and his mother still washes his clothes and cooks for him. Jody is used to living a life with just he and his mother that he feels no man is good enough. Jody begins to question Aaron’s true intentions for his mother and challenges Aaron’s authority in the process. Autumn is now faced with the decision of choosing between her son and the man she is set to marry.
Come journey with critically acclaimed national touring playwright Priest Tyaire and his all-star cast as they put a heart felt, comedic spin on the iconic classic movie “Baby Boy”. In a very timely approach, “Momma’s Baby Boy” displays the effects of what happens when a mother holds on to her son too long.
Additional cast members to be announced.

Come celebrate Kwanzaa 2016 with the Afrikan Connection
WHAT IS KWANZAA
As an African American and Pan-African holiday celebrated by millions throughout the world African community, Kwanzaa brings a cultural message which speaks to the best of what it means to be African and human in the fullest sense. Given the profound significance Kwanzaa has for African Americans and indeed, the world African community, it is imperative that an authoritative source and site be made available to give an accurate and expansive account of its origins, concepts, values, symbols and practice.
Moreover, given the continued rapid growth of Kwanzaa and the parallel expanded discussion of it and related issues, an authoritative source which aids in both framing and informing the discussion is likewise of the greatest importance. Therefore, the central interest of this website is to provide information which reveals and reaffirms the integrity, beauty and expansive meaning of the holiday and thus aids in our approaching it with the depth of thought, dignity, and sense of specialness it deserves.
The holiday, then will of necessity, be engaged as an ancient and living cultural tradition which reflects the best of African thought and practice in its reaffirmation of the dignity of the human person in community and culture, the well-being of family and community, the integrity of the environment and our kinship with it, and the rich resource and meaning of a people’s culture. It is within this understanding, then, that the Organization Us, the founding organization of Kwanzaa and the authoritative keeper of the tradition, has established and maintains this website.
Week after week, a wealthy businessman rides the same bus, befriending Shatique, a young single mother putting herself through school and struggling to raise a son on her own. As they get to know one another, their pasts unfold and tensions rise, unraveling a complex web of revenge, social mores and racial biases from a candid and unexpected perspective.

The O’Jays are touring history, a connection to an era and a sound that formed the soundtrack for the lives of several generations. The O’Jays are still hitting the road with the same electrifying energy they’ve had for over 50 years. Walter Williams and Eddie Levert first met when they were the ages of 6 and 7 respectively. As teenagers in Canton, Ohio, they formed a band originally consisting of Eddie Levert, Walter Williams, William Powell, Bobby Massey and Bill Isles. In 1963, the band took the name “”The O’Jays”” in tribute to Cleveland radio disc jockey Eddie O’Jay. Several members have changed, but the core, original lead singers Eddie Levert and Walter Williams, continue to front the group.
The O’Jays scored the first No. 1 and million-seller with “Backstabbers” and subsequently, they succeeded with various chart-topping pop and R&B singles including “Love Train,” “Put Your Hands Together,” “For The Love of Money,” “I Love Music,” “Darlin’ Darlin’ Baby (Sweet, Tender, Love),” “Livin’ For The Weekend” and “Use Ta Be My Girl.” This success propelled The O’Jays to be the first black vocal group to perform in arenas throughout America during the ’70s and ’80s.
The O’Jays were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2005. They were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2005 and honored with BET’s Life Time Achievement Award in 2009. In 2013, they were inducted into The Official R&B Music Hall of Fame. Throughout their career The O’Jays have achieved 10 Gold albums, 9 Platinum albums and 10 No. 1 hits. Eddie Levert Sr., Walter Williams Sr. and Eric Nolan Grant, who joined the group in 1995, continue to thrill fans today.

Out of the Ashes is dramatic expression of the real life journey of father and son who struggled while building a relationship after 14 years of separation. In 1994 Coley Harris went to prison to serve a 16 year sentence and he left behind his 2 year old son Ahmarr Melton. Father and son had to navigate their respective worlds in hopes of reuniting one day and filling the void in their respective lives. Coley struggled to find his identity as a responsible man in a world of steel and stone, as Ahmarr faced an unrelenting world without the guidance of his father. Out of the Ashes captures this intimate journey in a unique blend of dramatic and poetic harmony. This experience is unlike any that you will ever witness, for it is a continuation of a lifelong healing process that this father and son have embarked upon.
