Rock and Roll Circus Show Rocks the Barnyard Theatre Gold Reef City

Big Top Rock is the biggest, most entertaining and daring show ever produced by The Barnyard Theatres. It’s not the usual song and dance that us regular Barnyard goers have become accustomed to.

Big Top Rock, just like the previous installment and predecessor Rock Circus, features live music, aerial acts and funky dance routines with an electric atmosphere that will rock you like never before. The thrilling show will draw you in as the performers bring the heat for the duration of the show. The rock hits from six decades of music, bold acrobatics and impressive choreography will have you on the edge of your seat.

The Big Top Ringmaster will take you on a musical journey with music from Def Leppard, ACDC, Kings of Leon, Aerosmith, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Elvis Presley, Pink, Elton John, Michael Jackson, Pitbull and many more.

Prepare to be thoroughly entertained by a variety of acts that will have you jumping out of your seats and partying up a storm, just like I did.  I enjoyed the show tremendously and found myself moving to the beat.  It was an extremely fun and entertaining evening.

Dare to Dress

In keeping with the theme, theatre-goers are encouraged to dress the part. With a choice between Rock Glam or Carnival Chic. The question is, “What dress code would your sense of adventure drive you towards?”

Cartoon Network Live Tour Hits Jozi

As the cold front gripped Gauteng, parents were left looking for ideas to keep their little ones entertained  that didn’t involve the outdoors.  The timing of the opening show of the Cartoon Network Live Tour in Johannesburg, couldn’t have been more perfect.

In a story inspired by “good can conquer evil”, Cartoon Network Live Tour brings to life the much-loved characters from DSTV’s channel 301. The kids eagerly arrived to take their seats and one could see their anticipation build as they awaited the appearances of their favourite Cartoon Network characters.

The show sees characters such as the Powerpuff Girls, Ben 10, Gwen, Jake and Finn, fighting villains live on stage in a performance filled with music, dance, colourful lights and a willing participation from the kids and parents alike.


Kelvin Gizmo, scientist extraordinaire, transported us into the world of Cartoon Network which is under threat of Zarr, the evil robot.  We travelled through the Land of Ooo, the city of Townsville and Elmore to help Kevin Gizmo stop Zarr and his evil plans.

What was originally assumed to be a show for the kids only, turned out to be a show that catered for the entire family.  The kids clapped, danced and sang along.  There was a definite highlight for the kids and they revelled in every second of it, but you will need to attend the show to fully feel and understand that part of the experience.

The props and effects are rather impressive, resulting in the show providing an atmosphere similar to that of a concert.  Cartoon Network Live ends on an absolute high, leaving everyone wanting for more.  An extremely creative, fun and interactive production that the kids and entire family won’t want to miss this winter school holiday.

Cartoon Network Live will be showing in Johannesburg at Montecasino from 3rd – 8th July 2018
Tickets are available from Computicket: R175 – R390 – up to 50% off all off-peak shows
