Rock on Beethoven at Barnyard in Tygervalley

Send to Kindle

Rock On BeethovenOne of my gym instructors mentioned he was performing in Rock on Beethoven at the Willowbridge Barnyard Theatre in Tygervalley so I thought I would find out a bit more about it.  Rock on Beethoven is the sequel to the wonderfully popular Roll over Beethoven.  Roll over Beethoven is the longest running and most successful Barnyard Shows, which, when it ended had been watched by over 500 000 people!

Rock on Beethoven is a comedy; Ludwig von Beethoven comes back to life and analyses modern day music!  The show features rocked up cloassic music as well as rock and roll hits that have the audience up on their feet and cheering!  The music is a set of hits from Pink Floyd, Tina Turner, Cold Play, Gloria Gaynor, Whitney Houston, Billy Joel, Toto and many more.

The cast of the show consists of Coenraad Rall as Beethoven (and on keyboards), Richard Hala and Stephan Nel on male lead vocals, Naseera Holland on female lead vocals, Juan Smit on drums, Ringo Ndzuzo on bass, Roger Grant on lead guitar, Raymond Verster on keyboards, Rike Coetzer on sax and Hana Yim Wahl on the violin.  With that repertoire of vocals and instruments the music has to be good!

As with most Barnyard productions, the audience is encouraged to get to their feet and join in on the fun so make sure you take comfy shoes to dance in!

I’ve always enjoyed shows at the Barnyard chain of theatres; most are small enough to always have a good view of the stage and being able to take your own picnic dinner is a great concept – no rushing in and out of restaurants; just arrive at the theatre, find a table and settle down for a night of great entertainment.

When & How Much?
Rock on Beethoven is on until August 29th.
Ticket prices are R110 per person for the Wednesday to Saturday shows and its Buy One Get One Free on Tuesday and Sunday performances (at R150 per person).  Show times are Sundays – 2pm (doors open at 12.30) and Tuesday to Saturday – 8pm (doors open at 6.30)
