[Ticket present] Put this summer on the stage!


Theater School for Youth 2018
"Man! Man! Sai!" Pre-performance feature!!
~There is also a ticket present!~

“Theatrical School for Youth” celebrates its 12th year. Young people (from high school students to 29 years old) recruited from a wide range of people and a theater company in charge of the Kanagawa Prefectural Theater Association will challenge not only the cast but also the stage art, lighting, props and props, and production together to create a play.
This is a joint project of the prefecture and the prefectural theater federation that contributes to the development of youth through theater.
This year, 14 people have passed the audition, and together with the instructor Studio Salt, they are taking on the challenge of creating a whole stage, from acting to making props, costumes, and advertising.
Since the application requirements for the theater cram school are wide ranging from high school students to 29 years old, participants of various ages and backgrounds gather every year. Some have had stage experience since childhood, while others have no experience at all. In the meantime, it seems that this year he dared to focus on the basic training of the play. In the August performance, which can be said to be an announcement of the results, we will perform a revised version of "Man! Man! Sai!", which was well received last year.

~What is “Man! Man! Sai!”~
Set in a special nursing home for the elderly, "Furusato," this is a musical drama that interweaves physical expressions such as song, dance, and rhythm ensemble to depict the feelings of elderly residents and caregivers.
This work, which was performed at the Magcal Theater last year and was well received, is for new students.
We will revise the script and perform it as "Man! Man! Sai! -2018ver.-".

One day, about a month before the actual performance. We asked the students, who have overcome the tough practice with tears in their eyes, about their thoughts on the actual performance!

Mr. Yin Hayashi
I want to become a voice actor in the future, so I participated to gain experience. It's my first time doing a play, but it's a lot of fun. I'm always told that my voice is too small, so I want to convey my voice to the hearts and minds of the audience.

Natsuko Hayashi
I became interested in theater about three years ago when I saw a performance at a theater school. This is my first time participating in a theater cram school, but I am satisfied because I can also work on singing and dancing. I will do my best to aim for a stage that the audience can enjoy and that I myself can enjoy.

Dai Shimizu
I like Aso's play from Studio Salt, and I wanted to work with him, so I joined. I've been involved in theater before, but at the theater cram school, my eyes are opened to a world I didn't know, and I continue to make discoveries. At the actual performance, I hope that our enthusiasm will be conveyed to the audience and that the entire theater will be excited.

Ayaka Yamanaka
I've been in musicals, but I'm not good at acting, so I wanted to improve that part, so I participated. So it was a good experience for me to learn the basics of acting.
It seems that the number of participants is small this time, but I want to show the best stage.

Saki Kawai
This is my third time participating in the play cram school. Mr. Shiina from Studio Salt writes a script that sticks to your heart, so everyone tries to respond to it, and I can do my best. We will put in a lot of effort to show you something really good, so please come and see us!

Mizuki Kawano
I have been in theater since I was a child. It's my first time participating in a play cram school, but I can learn a different method than before, and it's fun to be able to play with people of my age.
Being able to face yourself properly and express your emotions. That is my goal.

Yuusuke Yamazaki
It seems that it was at the school arts festival in the 4th grade that I woke up to the fun of theater. I don't remember (laughs). When I entered junior high school, I took a break from theater to focus on club activities, but I wanted to try again, so I joined a theater cram school.
Now that I've grown up a little bit, I'm thinking in my own way and reading the script carefully. We want our rhythm to resonate deep in the audience's eardrums, and we want to make it a stage where they can think, "It was fun."

Mr. Kiriya Hatanaka
The play cram school has been participating for 3 years in a row. I thought I'd take a break this year because I'd be playing for the whole summer, but Mr. Aso invited me, saying, "This year's workshop is going to be amazing" (laughs). But there was no lie in those words. I'm sure everyone's way of expressing themselves will change, so I want to make an even bigger impact than last year. This summer, this member will create a work that will impress those who come to see it!

《Production Note》
"Studio Salt" based in Yokohama is in charge of teaching the play cram school. We usually work on straight-play works, but at the theater cram school, we also incorporate singing and dancing, so it's an initiative that we can learn a lot from.
We interviewed the organizer, Reiji Aso, and the scriptwriter and director, Izumi Shiina.

This is my third year in charge of Aso Shibaijuku, and I am creating works with a different style from our theater company. Therefore, there is no sense of "I will teach you" anywhere, and every time I approach it with the stance of "everyone will create it together."
ShiinaThis time, we will perform a revised version of "Man! Man! Sai!" that we performed last year. The concept and basic story are the same, with young people in their teens and 20s playing the role of an elderly person in their 90s without old age makeup, but the cast and number of people are different, so it may be a completely different work. not.
Asao This year, we invited instructors from outside, focused on basic training such as vocalization, and worked on etude (improvisational drama). I think it must have been painful, but the result should be on stage.
As you can see in the copy of Shiina 's work, "this moment is irreplaceable" is the theme of the work, and at the same time it can be said about the students at the theater school. Don't miss the brilliance of this moment, the glimmer of a moment that only good actors and adults can't do.
