    What do ABBA and Bee Gees have in common? Both groups ruled the world in the 70’s with their monumental music and have become best selling artists of all time, selling more than 200 million records each!

The Barnyard Theatre Productions introduces a tribute to two of the most influential pop groups of our time, namely the Swedish pop sensation ABBA and the singing trio of brothers known as Bee Gees.

The cast do an authentic impersonation of Barry Gibb’s falsetto as they go on to re-ignite the disco groove with hits like You Should Be Dancing, Stayin’ Alive, Night Fever, Tragedy and Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight) and more.

Super Troupers also showcases the excellent song writing skills of these two huge groups. You can look forward to Benny and Björn’s classics; One Night in Bangkok and I know Him So Well and also The Gibb Brothers’ number one’s including Islands in the Stream, Heartbreaker, If I Can’t Have You and Grease.

Onze Molen

Old Mill in Durbanville

Looks like a twin of Mostert's Mill. It dates back to about 1801 and and is a bit newer than Mostert's Mill.

Onze Molen was built about 1801 and worked by wind through to the early 20th century. The sails, roof and machinery were removed at some time, and according to tradition the structure was used as a horse mill. In 1984 a restoration was undertaken by the Natal Building Society - I assume at the same time as an estate of luxury houses was built around it. The estate includes a road called "James Walton", in tribute to the leading expert on South African mills.

The restoration included the reinstallation of machinery, but the mill is not operable.
