The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway is appealing its younger audiences when it stages a new production, Bieber & Buddies, in the run up to – and over - the festive season.

After the huge success of Kidz Rock at the venue in 2013 and 2014, The Barnyard Theatres decided Never Say Never, and put together this new show that sees Bieber vs One Direction, in a chart-topping show down.

The Kidz Rock band, singers and dancers will take audiences on an awesome journey with three boys who have the desire to be Justin Bieber. Yes, they want to look like, dance like and sound like their hero; but what will their friends (especially girl friends) think, and what will their challenges be to achieve their goal? Never Say Never as these buddies reach for their dream, which is to stage a Justin Bieber concert at their high school.

Experience all the action as the cast bring to life Justin Bieber songs such as All Around The World, Beauty and A Beat, Boy Friend, As Long As You Love Me and many more. Will these buddies one day be standing in the Hall of Fame when they stage the ultimate Bieber concert?

Bieber & Buddies also includes songs such as Who Says by Selena Gomez, Best Song Ever by One Direction, Give Your Heart A Break by Demi Laveto, Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus, Roar by Katy Perry, and Born This Way by Lady Gaga.

Bieber & Buddies shows will take place as Saturday matinees on October 25; November 1 and 15; December 20 and 27, as well as January 3 and 10. The theatre opens at 12h30 and the show starts at 14h00. This production consists of two 45 minute sets and a 20 minute interval.
