What better way for The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway to celebrate the year-end than by paying tribute to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood? Their festive season production, Hollywood Walk Of Fame, features the greatest music from the greatest movies and runs at the popular mall venue from October 11 through to January 8.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame comprises more than 2,500 five-pointed brass stars embedded in the sidewalks along Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. Now, The Barnyard Theatre presents a tribute to the unforgettable songs that have become as iconic as the films that they were composed for, and whose stars became showbiz stalwarts, with their names etched into our memories and into this famous Hollywood Walk of Fame forever.

Hollywood Walk of Fame is a dazzling roller-coaster ride that starts with a trip to the dance movies of the 80s, 90s and beyond. These movies will inspire audiences to dance and put on their boogie shoes when they encounter John Travolta in the 70’s classic Saturday Night Fever, not to mention the hit singles from The Bee Gees, KC and the Sunshine Band and Yvonne Elliman. The 70s were also responsible for the all-time classic Grease - who could ever forget the sensational Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, and Olivia Newton-John? The 80s produced some of the highest-grossing movies ever, such as Flashdance, Footloose, Dirty Dancing and Fame.

Also featured are some of the greatest ballads ever to be featured as movie themes. Just think back to I Do It For You by Bryan Adams from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves; I Believe I Can Fly by R Kelly from Space Jam; and the ultimate movie ballad, My Heart Will Go on by Celine Dion from Titanic.

Also featured is music from cult movies such as Pulp Fiction, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and The Rock of Ages as well as movie themes such as Space Odyssey, Peter Gunn, Phantom of the Opera, Star Wars and Mission Impossible.

Whether it be a year-end staff function, family outing or festive season celebration, the movie hits of Hollywood Walk Of Fame are sure to get the party started! To accommodate festive season revelry, additional lunch time shows (starting at 13h30) have been added on November 18 and 25, December 2, 8, 9, 13, 14 and 15.
