ABBA and Queen are two of the most influential pop and rock groups of all time, and as a result, The Barnyard Theatre Productions presents Dancing Queen – A Tribute to ABBA and Queen. This elaborate production takes you on a trip back through space and time when glitz, glam and some of the greatest pop tunes ever written, emerged in the 70’s and early 80’s.
Dancing Queen kicks off in 1973 when ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest with the song Waterloo and soon became Sweden’s biggest musical export ever. The ABBA side of the show continues with hits like Ring Ring, SOS, Does Your Mother Know, Thank You for the Music, Knowing Me Knowing You and many more. Their music is staged with an authentic reproduction of this era and sets the show alight.
Queen – a band that symbolised the excessive and over-the-top showmanship that characterised the decadent 70’s and early 80’s. Showcased are their hits like Killer Queen, Somebody to Love, We Are the Champions, Don’t Stop Me Now and many more. The album ‘Night at the Opera’ – one of Queen’s most popular albums, receives a special tribute in this show with songs like Death on Two Legs, You’re My Best Friend, Love of My Life and the full version of the epic Bohemian Rhapsody.
Don’t miss the chance to catch this amazing tribute show and support a good cause at the same time. The Johannesburg Childrens Home are holding a special performance of Dancing Queen at the Barnyard Theatre Cresta where all the proceeds will go to charity.
Venue: The Barnyard Theatre, Cresta Shopping Centre, Cresta.
