101 HITS

101 Hits has got to be a record number of songs in one show for The Barnyard Theatre at Suncoast, as they present 101 hit songs in one show. Get ready as they take you on a roller coaster ride through more than 60 years of hit songs.

Featuring a 10-piece cast of singers, musicians and dancers, 101 Hits promises to keep audiences rocking from beginning to end of this music marathon. Watch how the cast manage to perform 20 songs from 20 different artists in a one six-minute medley and how they achieve their ultimate goal of performing 101 hit songs in one show! Experience music from various decades, genres and styles as we tantalize a variety of music tastes.

Hit the Road with Route 66, and rock to Bruce Springsteen’s Cadillac Ranch and Born In The U.S.A. The pace and the power never let up as the show zooms through five decades of South African hits such as Weekend Special, Impi, Waka Waka (This Time for Africa), Substitute and Kaptein to name but a few, before slowing down with the Josh Groban classic, You Raise Me Up.

101 Hits also features a 20-song dance craze party medley, something for the air guitar rockers, and let’s not forget music tributes to Maroon 5, Meghan Trainor, The Chainsmokers and many more.

Music sure makes the world go round and 101 Hits is where the music never stops as we countdown song after song to reach the target of 101 songs in one night!
