REDEMPTION OF A DOGG - Award-winning, writer, director and producer Je'Caryous Johnson is once again taking the nation by storm with his new stage play, Redemption of a Dogg. The highly anticipated follow up to his sold out stage play, Set It Off, Redemption of a Dogg stars entertainment icon Snoop Dogg and features R&B hit maker and star of WE TV's Braxton Family Values, Tamar Braxton and R&B heartthrob and four-time Grammy nominee Eric Benet. The cast also features actress and singer Demetria McKinney, actor Omar Gooding from Baby Boy and Bounce’s Family Time, and comedian Lil’ JJ. Redemption of a Dogg examines the internal battle one man has between preserving his life-long legacy and losing the love of his life when he is faced with choosing fame and fortune over faith and family. The play’s story takes audiences on a magical music ride as they step into the captivating world of a Je'Caryous Johnson Entertainment production. Redemption of a Dogg is set against a backdrop of Snoop Dogg’s greatest hits, as well as songs from his recently released chart-topping Gospel album, Bible Of Love and makes its debut on the heels of the 25th Anniversary of Snoop Dogg’s debut album, Doggystyle. Audiences will also groove to some incredible musical moments with Tamar Braxton and Eric Benet and see special VIP friends and musical guests along the way.

THUNDERBALL

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2018 @ 8:00 PM
THUNDERBALL (1965) - By 1965, moviegoers know beyond any doubt that Sean Connery IS James Bond... This fourth Bond film from the same team that brought all the early Bond adventures to the screen (director Terence Young, screenwriter Richard Maibaum, cinematographer Ted Moore, title sequence designer Maurice Binder, and composer John Barry) proved to be the most popular Bond movie of all, topping box offices in 1965 and 1966. Also returning is the sinister criminal organization SPECTRE. Now headed by the menacing Emilio Largo (Adolfo Celi), SPECTRE threatens wholesale death and destruction via stolen nuclear weapons unless a huge ransom of uncut diamonds is paid. Luckily, British agent 007, James Bond, is available to foil this nefarious blackmail plot. Of all his Bond performances, Sean Connery seems his most assured in this film - impeccably dressed, armed with his inimitable Walther PPK automatic pistol and a host of espionage gadgets, and with a witty one-liner quip ready for every occasion. And, of course, there are the Thunderball "Bond girls": Largo's mistress, Domino (Claudine Auger) and SPECTRE agent Fiona (Luciana Paluzzi). Special effects and stunts abound, from the opening action sequence to the stand-out underwater shots which are choreographed with such skill that they won Thunderball its Oscar for Best Special Effects.

CASTING CROWNS - The multi-platinum selling and Grammy Award-winning group will hit the road this holiday season for the It’s Finally Christmas Tour, featuring special guest Hannah Kerr. Presented by Compassion International, the tour takes its name from the band’s 2017 Christmas EP It’s Finally Christmas (Beach Street/Reunion) and will give audiences a chance to see one of the most celebrated bands in Christian music showcase songs from this album and their previous seasonal offering, Peace On Earth, as well as some of the group’s biggest hits, setting the stage for an unforgettable Christmas experience.

“Christmas has become clouded with so many different distractions that it’s easy for us to forget to stop and take time to think about the true meaning - how God saved the world through his Son, and the humble way in which he came,” says Casting Crowns' lead singer Mark Hall. “So we are excited to head out this Christmas season and celebrate what is genuinely glorious about this time of year. It’s going to be an incredible night of fun and worship. We’ll be singing some familiar songs, but our hope is that folks might hear some of them as though it’s the first time and recapture the real heart of Christmas.”

With more than 10 million records sold, Casting Crowns has held the position of Billboard’s top-selling act in Christian music since 2007. The band continues to impact audiences with their powerful live shows, having performed for more than six million fans. In addition, the band recently received its seventh Grammy Award nomination and has crossed over a milestone of more than 100,000 child sponsorships generated through Casting Crowns’ concerts.

CAETANO VELOSO - Blessed with an otherworldly voice and an Ellingtonian understanding of harmonic color, Veloso co-led the bossa nova and Tropicália movements of the late 1960s and has since taken on everything from funky samba workouts to ethereal balladry and orchestral pieces. His self-titled 1968 LP was a revolutionary statement, single-handedly launching Tropicália and helping to contemporize Brazilian popular culture in its embrace of international musical influences. Over 40 albums have followed in the ensuing decades that have continued to expand the scope of Brazilian music.
For this night, Veloso brings focus to his musical family in a performance with his sons, presenting a mix of newly composed and classic material from their 2018 Universal Music release Ofertório (Au Vivo). At 76, Caetano Veloso has attained a global stature as a songwriter on par with the likes of John Lennon and Bob Dylan. His influence across musical genres and geographic borders has been vast, yet his riveting concert appearances remain the most important aspect of a legacy still in progress.
