In holding Yokohama Student Theater Festival 2020
To university students who create theater in Kanagawa Prefecture

Nice to meet you. My name is Masaru Masaka and I am the chairman of the Yokohama Student Theater Festival 2020 Executive Committee. After working at the theater circle "Theatrical Company Crescent Theater" at Yokohama National University, I am planning a theater performance in Kanagawa Prefecture after graduating from university. This time, at the "Kanagawa Art Hall" in Hodogaya called Magcal Theater in Art Hall, this theater festival will be held as one of the efforts to "attract people with the charm of cultural arts and create a lively area" in Kanagawa Prefecture. It was carried.

The new coronavirus causes great confusion not only in your student life but also in your theater activities, and it is very difficult to carry out the activities up to last year, such as canceling the performances welcoming new students and canceling performances at school festivals. Isn't it? Now, each one is struggling to continue expressing while searching for a way to live. Can you confront such a situation with you? Can you reduce the burden of performing your work? With that in mind, we planned the Yokohama Student Theater Festival 2020.

Because of this difficult situation, we will hold hands, exchange words, and look for opportunities to move forward. I am determined to make an effort to be a place for everyone to interact and develop. We sincerely look forward to your participation.
