The authentic Barnyard Theatre returns to Durban and will be opening at Suncoast soon!

The Barnyard Theatre is returning to Durban with the launch of its new venue at the renowned Suncoast Casino Hotels & Entertainment – a member of the prestigious Tsogo Sun Group.

The planned opening date is December 12, 2018, and bookings are already live. Suncoast and Barnyard have excellent synergies and both parties look forward to a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship. This will be the third Barnyard Theatre to open at a Tsogo Sun Entertainment destination, following the opening of Silverstar and Gold Reef City Barnyard Theatres.

The Suncoast Barnyard will be under new management and will fall within the same ownership umbrella as the rest of the venues currently in the Barnyard Group (not franchised). Durbanites can look forward to an excellent show experience and the same wooden interior and casual seating-style that creates the distinct ambiance, unique to the Barnyard Theatre.

The Barnyard Group is passionate about local artists and musicians and entertaining audiences across South Africa. They are extremely excited to return to Durban with an incredible show line-up, including new Barnyard Productions as well as local bands and comedians.

The addition of the Barnyard Theatre to Suncoast, Durban’s premier entertainment destination, forms part of the extensive refurbishments that have been underway over the last year. “Live shows six days a week at the Barnyard Theatre will add a whole new dimension to our already extensive offerings,” comments Louise Howell, Suncoast Marketing Manager, “and promoting local talent, fits in well with our existing philosophy.”

The new Barnyard Theatre Suncoast will include an in-house catering division with pizzas, snack baskets, platters, buffet options and more for sale to patrons attending shows. This unique theatre experience provides the perfect night out with live entertainment for couples, families and friends. The Barnyard Theatres are also ideal for birthday parties, fundraising events, corporate functions, client entertainment, day conferencing and more.
