The Barnyard Theatre officially arrives at Emperors Palace

04 June 2014

The Palace of Dreams is proud to give The Barnyard Theatre a big warm ‘howdy partner’ welcome to Gauteng’s leading leisure and entertainment resort. Located in the Entertainment Emporium, the popular entertainment venue will officially open its doors to the public on 31 July 2014.

“The addition of South Africa’s best loved theatre franchise to our complex is going to create a long-term synergy between thrilling entertainment productions and an ideal location, Emperors Palace,” comments Complex General Manager, Nigel Atherton.
The theatre will have a seating capacity of 400, including an in-house catering division that will serve pizzas, platters and buffets to show goers.

This fun and exciting theatre experience is extremely popular and will provide the perfect night out with live entertainment for couples, families and friends. The Barnyard interior conveys an old-school farm feel where guests will be treated to a cultural journey inside the ‘kraal’-like housing, enjoying shows that are specially performed to a small community.

 Guests can look forward to the same interior look and feel of traditional Barnyard theatres with warm, wooden tones and laid-back country-style tables.

The Barnyard’s hit show, Time Warp, where “Rock Stars, Hollywood & Broadway collide” will celebrate the opening of the new venue. The production features timeless hits and incredible dance sequences from the best movies and musicals of our time, including Grease, We Will Rock You, Men in Black, James Bond, Moulin Rouge, Footloose, Fame, Saturday Night Fever, Dirty Dancing & more! Time Warp will be performed from 31 July to 31 August 2014.

The show will be performed Tuesdays to Saturdays at 20:00 (doors open at 18:30) and Sundays at 14:00 (doors open at 12:00). Tickets are priced from R100 per person and can be purchased telephonically on 011 928 1108, online at or from the Barnyard Theatre Box Office located at the theatre entrance.

The Barnyard Theatre at Emperors Palace will be the 6th theatre in the Barnyard group and is also an ideal venue to host birthday parties, fundraising events, corporate functions or day conferencing.
