The Georgia Players Guild start their 2020 series at the Earl and Rachel Smith Strand Theatre with a Bang on Feb. 7 with one of their most beloved shows in tribute to Creedance Clearwater Revival and Three Dog Night!

Come and relive the classics like “Down on the Corner” and sing-a-longs like “Fortunate Son” from the rich CCR catalog. Songs like “One (Is The Loneliest Number)”, “Joy To The World” and “Shambala” ensure that the Three Dog Night set will be a party no one will want to miss.

This show will feature legendary Marietta singer Barry Lancaster as well as other GPG favorites like Chad Yochum, Travis Cottle, Jacob Deaton, Rashad Shazam, Danny Paschall and more.

This pairing of the two iconic bands debuted over two years ago and always has a near-instant sellout, so don’t wait to get your tickets until it’s too late.

VIP tickets are available and include a private mini-show before the concert, two drink tickets and a signed poster from the members of GPG. Visit for tickets and more information.

The Strand is located at 117 North Park Square, Marietta 30060, on the historic downtown Marietta Square.
