longest running and most successful Barnyard Shows. The show is
directed by Ian von Memerty and features the hilarious Ludwig
von Beethoven who comes to life to analyse the modern day music
scene.
Ludwig von Beethoven returns to earth from the pantheon of
classical music, with a ghetto blaster on his shoulder, to Rock On to
modern day rock and pop hits along with some snatches of
evergreens from the likes of Bach, Grieg, Mozart and a little
Beethoven too!
Rock On Beethoven features songs from six decades of music
namely Michael Jackson, Katy Perry, The Police, Toto, Pink Floyd
and many more.
Rock On Beethoven is set to become one of the most successful
shows on the Barnyard circuit featuring a variety of music and
entertainment that will leave you screaming for more.
