The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway is on its ‘final countdown’… not only to 2017, but to when it permanently closes its big wooden doors on December 31.

With less than three weeks and 20 shows remaining at the popular mall venue, patrons are urged to book now for one final foot-stomping, table-banging party. The theatre’s final production, Hollywood Walk Of Fame, features the greatest songs from the greatest movies, and is the perfect parting shot – it offers great music, vocals and dancing in a high-energy, fun family show.

The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway’s Christmas Eve show (December 24) has become a tradition with many families who choose to see in the big day in a festive, family-friendly environment. Domestic goddesses are summonsed to cast aside dishes, as a carefree evening at The Barnyard is the perfect antidote to holiday mayhem. The show will entertain children of all ages, take grandparents on a trip down memory lane and impress out-of-town visitors… all you need to do is kick back and relax.

The theatre will open at 18h00 and the show will start at 20h00, tickets will cost the usual R165 pp and there is limited availability. 

An additional show is also being staged on Family Day – December 26– and tickets will cost R165 per person.

(The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway’s final show will take place on New Year’s Eve, December 31, and is fully booked.)

Tickets are R165 pp from Wednesdays to Saturdays (R130 pp on Tuesday night). Unfortunately, the final Sunday matinee show is also sold out. For bookings and enquiries, phone The Barnyard Theatre on 031 566 3045 or visit
