Barnyard Theatre’s inaugural Ladies’ Charity Night for August 27 offers fun and festivities.

To quote Kool and The Gang’s 1979 hit, “Oh yes, it’s ladies night, and the feeling’s right…” That sentiment hasn’t changed in the 30 years since they first sang those lyrics, so be sure not to miss The Barnyard Theatre’s inaugural Ladies’ Charity Night, which forms part of Gateway Theatre of Shopping’s Women’s month in August.

The Barnyard Theatre is staging a special ‘ladies only’ night of their current show LM Radio on August 27, which will see lots of fun and festivities and 10% of the ticket price going to Reach For A Dream. The evening and the show will be hosted by Dave Guselli who has traded in his East Coast Radio microphone to play the role of LM Radio’s resident DJ. He will introduce hits brought to life by a nine–piece live band and singers, as well as seeing through the ladies’ night proceedings.

The talented LM Radio cast takes the audience on a nostalgic trip featuring hits from the sixties and seventies in a non-stop party show which includes all time favourites like The Beatles, Tina Turner, Cher, Tom Jones, The Bee Gees and Eric Clapton.

Besides the show, ladies can expect a welcome cocktail, pampering by Mangwanani African Day Spa, Gateway goodie bags, fabulous giveaways, an evening packed with entertainment, and your parking paid for – what more could a girl want? The Barnyard Theatre’s kitchen will be open with gourmet pizzas available on the night, and a full cash bar will also be operational.

Ladies are urged to arrive when the theatre opens at 18h30, while the show will start at 20h00. Tickets R115 pp, except that there will be lots of added value to the normal ticket price. For bookings and enquiries, phone The Barnyard Theatre on 031 – 566 3045 or e-mail
