The first major show at the Barnyard Theatre at Gateway this year is Natural Woman, opening on January 29 and running until March 9.

It's a dynamic show that features the music of all the divas who have made their mark on the music world - Tina Turner, Sarah Brightman, Vanessa Mae, Nina Simone, Anastacia, Kelly Clarkson, Cher, Abba, The Supremes, Nancy Sinatra and many more.

The line-up of hits includes Man I Feel Like A Woman, River Deep Mountain High, Since You've Been Gone, I'm Outta Love, Dancing Queen and We Are Family.

Natural Woman is a party show featuring a broad range of music, from rock to pop, classical, country and even opera.

The 10-piece cast consists of Ramaine Barreiro Lloyd, Celeste Schoemann, Andrea Shine and Liezel Pieters on vocals, whilst Calli Thomson is on keyboard, Josh Thatcher on guitar, Alan Lloyd on drums, Benoit Grigaug on bass guitar, Anita Ruscoe on violin and Kirsty Madgin on saxophone.
