BARNYARD CHANGES (article first published : 2007-02-24)

The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway has undergone a R1 million upgrade and introduced some interesting changes.

Although the theatre has seen continual upgrades to facilities and equipment in its five years of existence, the venue’s owners Debbie Davidson and Louis Möller decided to take the venue to a new level.

The most notable of the changes is that while The Barnyard has retained its “bring your own” food policy, it now offers food in the form of gourmet pizzas and platters. Patrons are still encouraged to arrive early, place their pizza orders which will be freshly prepared, and enjoy their meals at their seats in the theatre before curtain-up.

There is a service window for the food outlet alongside the bar which will allow patrons to place their orders for the show. In order to accommodate a kitchen to cater for this, The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway has restructured the seating on the raised area at the back of the venue on the ground level. The tables have been removed, and there are now two levels of counter seating which provide must-improved views of the stage. In the process, however, the capacity of the venue has been reduced from 480 to 430.

In order to comply with health regulations that come with having a kitchen, the theatre’s woodchips have been replaced with an aged wooden floor that will still be in keeping with the venue’s old world charm.
