Hopeless case?
Perfect solution! The Barnyard Theatres offer professional upmarket theatre productions in a cosy, relaxed social environment where friendship, food, wine and brilliant entertainment all come together. Bring the kids if it’s a show that they would enjoy, meet some friends after work and share a few bottles of wine, host a birthday party, plan a weekend date, double date or a New Years Eve bash.
Doors usually open about and hour and a half before the show starts so that you can get comfy at your own wooden table, make yourself at home and have dinner. Pack a gourmet picnic, pick up something from a drive-through, take last nights leftovers, order your favourite Chinese take-out and bring some chop-sticks anything goes on the self-catered food front, no fuss. The bigger Barnyard Theatres have selection of pizzas, nachos and snack platters that you can order in advance and collect on arrival. No beverages are allowed as there is a full bar service catering for drinks (closed during the show) so be sure to stock up before the performance.
The theatres are non-smoking and kid friendly with smoking lounges for smokers. Shows include local and international plays and musicals, live bands as well as special circus productions. The stage, lighting effects, sound quality and performances are Broadway quality set in a rustic Barnyard inspired venue with wooden tables facing the centre stage. The shows are usually so much fun that you might want to be a part of them and since dancing is not allowed on the tables the production company hosts regular auditions for talent. Break a leg!
