The world of art to go, see and feel
Kanagawa Prefectural youth center theater data room

Miyuki Inoue (Magcal Editorial Department)

I also want to do theater ... ...!
Have you ever been driven by such an impulse when you were moved by seeing a wonderful stage? The Kanagawa Prefectural Youth Center Theater Resource Room is a reliable entity that supports that feeling.

The establishment is July 2005. Established based on theater books and materials that have been collected for over half a century, the Yokohama Drama Research Institute has, of course, continued collection.
The collection includes domestic and foreign drama collections, theater books (mainly contemporary theater), theater scripts, theater magazines, performance materials for Kanagawa Prefecture and other parts of Japan.
We will also find a theater script for "Theatrical Produce" Spiral Stairs "that has appeared in the Magcal Theater!
The three major new plays, "Teatro", "New play" and "Tragedy comedy" are almost completely owned. In addition to "Seriff era" and "Quarterly high school theater", there are a large number of magazines of each theater group, and it will end up saying "Oh!"
Near the ceiling, there will also be posters actually used in major theaters of the 80's Europe. There is only one (or maybe only) valuable thing in the country, but it is modern, fashionable, and the tension rises just looking.

And, most of the books and materials are open racks!
You can turn around the pages, taking about 9,000 books, about 10,000 magazines, and most of the theater materials.
Furthermore, it is nice to be able to lend aside from some scarce materials (up to 3 books once, 2 weeks, ID card required).

What I would like to pay attention to is that the materials for high school theater and junior high school theater are substantial. As the screenplay of amateur theater is limited in publishing, it is rare in the country to have only this. Sometimes the school theater members come together to choose a performance, and sometimes they come to search for materials from outside the prefecture such as Kanazawa.
Of course it is not possible to create a stage just with a script and actors. It also needs technical staff such as theaters, public relations, lighting and sound.
The theater library is run by the volunteer staff of the Kanagawa Prefectural Theater Federation, and in response to such consultations, it will introduce experts as needed.

There is a small theater space "Studio HIKARI" right next to it, and on the first floor is the autumnal leaves hall with 812 seats. Here you have everything you need for theater.
I was convinced that the youth center was called "sacred place" by many theater people.
