CELTIC ROCK (article first published : 2007-09-2)

When they present their next show, Celtic Rock, the Barnyard Theatre at Gateway will stage the mother of all parties as they travel to the other end of the globe and get caught up in everything that is endearingly Irish.

All the music featured in the show is influenced by the Emerald Isle which has succeeded in producing some of the most popular and acclaimed music of recent decades. Celtic Rock will combine elements of folk and pop and a good dose of pub songs washed down with an abundance of rock.

Celtic Rock features music of The Corrs, Van Morrison, Thin Lizzy, Chris De Burgh, U2, Wilson Pickett, The Commitments, The Cranberries and Simple Minds. Audiences can wash their Guinness down with songs such as Sunday Bloody Sunday, Try A Little Tenderness, Lady In Red, Don’t You Forget About Me and Brown Eyed Girl.

The singalong sections will have audiences banging on the tables as they get caught up in the magic of Ireland with numbers like Danny Boy, Wild Rover, The Leaving of Liverpool and Whiskey In The Jar.

Celtic Rock features a nine–piece cast including four vocalists, guitar, keyboards, bass guitar, drums, saxophone (and Irish whistle for authenticity) and violin.

The Barnyard Theatre will also stage lunchtime shows in the weeks preceding Christmas to cater for corporate entertaining with additional matinee shows on November 30, December 7 and 14, and Wednesday, December 12.

Celtic Rock from September 25 to January 6. is the perfect party to end 2007, regardless of whether you chose to do so with friends, family or work colleagues.

Tickets are R100 per person from Wednesday to Saturday, with discounted specials of R60 per person every Tuesday night and Sunday matinee show. For bookings and enquiries, phone The Barnyard Theatre on 031 – 566 3045, e-mail gateway@barnyardtheatres.co.za or visit www.barnyardtheatres.co.za for more information.
