The Georgia Players Guild celebrates two things: The greatest music of all time and the finest musicians in the Southeast.

Musical Director, singer, and multi-instrumentalist Travis Cottle and Production Manager, singer, and guitarist Jacob Deaton carefully tailor each Georgia Players Guild show to meet each market’s needs.  Then, Travis and Jacob then join those selections with the best musicians for the task that Georgia has to offer. 

Their combined decades as leaders or members of countless musical endeavors have afforded them a long list of cohorts to call upon, who happen to be some of the most talented musicians in Atlanta and throughout Georgia. The result is a reverent exploration of some of the most iconic pop, rock, and country music ever made, tinged with the unique talents and personalities of the musicians chosen to make it. The Georgia Players Guild began producing concerts at the historic Earl Smith Strand Theatre in Marietta, GA, just outside Atlanta in 2016. “The Strand” still serves as it’s home stage, but the Guild’s reach and demand have expanded to an ever-growing list of theatres and venues throughout the country.
