ghosts of rock earl smith strand theatre marietta

Ghosts of Rock - Marietta
March 4th - 5th / Friday - Saturday; 7:00pm
Earl Smith Strand Theatre - Marietta


Enjoy a Rock Musical twist on the Dickens’ Classic! It’s 1983 and Rock is in Trouble! The Rock Gods (Jimi Hendrix, along with Jim Morrison and a surprise visitor – From Kiss) look down and see peril with the coming of the 80’s electric pop scene.


Case and Point – the BellBottoms, a boy band led by two Very talented but misguided brothers, controlled by “The Man” and the corporate music machine that shelters them from all things Rock and Roll. The Rock Gods must intervene before it’s too late!


They send in The Ghosts of Rock – Past, Present and Future to visit the boys and give them the rock and roll mileage they desperately need. The boys merge with the spirits of blues and rock legends from Muddy Waters to Chuck Berry to Led Zeppelin and take a fast- tracked, hilarious musical journey!


The question is, will they be inspired to break away from the The Man… and Rock? Come Find Out!
