Catch the last few weeks of The Barnyard Theatre production Hollywood Walk of Fame at the Willowbridge Life Style Centre. On show until October 9, it is a tribute to “the greatest music from the greatest movies to ever hit the big screen in Hollywood, whose unforgettable songs have become as iconic as the films they were composed for and whose stars became showbiz stalwarts, their names etched into our memories and into this famous walk of fame forever.”
‘The Hollywood Walk of Fame’ is a showcase of dance movies of the eighties, nineties and beyond.
Audiences have encountered John Travolta in the seventies classic ‘Saturday Night Fever’, and have experienced dancing anthems like ‘Night Fever’, ‘Jive Talkin’’ and ‘You Should Be Dancing’.

Also featured are some of the greatest ballads in movie music history, such as ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It For You’ by Bryan Adams from ‘Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves’; ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ by R. Kelly from ‘Space Jam’; as well as that ballad of ballads, ‘My Heart Will Go On’ by Celine Dion, featured in ‘Titanic’.
