The stage turns around! Life is also around! "Bite show-BEST board-" performance report

The Magkal Performing Arts Academy is fostering performing arts talents who are led by Yusuke Yokouchi, a playwright and director. The 2018 regular show "Bite show-BEST Edition-" was held on August 18 (Sat) and 19 (Sun) for two days.
Songs and dances that level up each time and the stage to be brushed up become a topic, and tickets for all four performances are all sold out this year. For those who were not able to see it unfortunately, I will report the whole story of the hot stage!

The venue is the Kanagawa Prefectural Youth Center, which has produced many theater people. Although it is the autumnal leaves hall that boasts 812 visitors in normal use, the number of guests is limited to 180 in the “Bite Show” and “the stage that rotates 360 degrees with the audience” is Uri. What kind of stage would it be ...? I was surprised that I was blown up with expectations and suddenly I was guided to the stage from the "back door"!
That's right, the audience was set on the stage!

I often wait while looking at the screen from the inside. An actress appeared inside the curtain along with the bell of the opening performance, and it was enlivened in the "previous story", and she got out and got on Seri. As it is, I fully use the stage mechanism.

When the curtain comes up, actors in a large audience. What if all this space would be an acting area?Both are extravagant productions.
I was thrilled to see the dramatic opening.

The actors rushing to the stage one after another while singing "To Stage".

And all the members dance!
The audience is on the stage where the actors dance, so their liveliness is vibrated and transmitted through the bins. The acting area is so close that it will reach if you reach out and it's great power!
Wrap yourself in a real part-time job uniform, sing the hot thoughts that follow your dreams, and shout the realities of part-time life!

The pose is decided in front of my eyes and my feeling of excitement is MAX!
Although it is such a large hall, the intimacy like a small theater can not be gathered.
"" The goodness of the rhythm that the stage unfolds without darkening is also attractive.

In the left hand, the scene where the stairs of the stage sleeve are used for the set unfolds.
The dream that I could reach was able to play, and the anger and lament that did not go were mixed. It's a tough scene, but it looks like a West Side story scene and I think it's cool!

New songs have been added to the "BEST Edition", which has been revised since the premiere of 2016.
Sing the live piano back "Make it money". I was impressed by the scene of singing a tough reality, as if superposing the appearances of the academy students growing up. The combination of vigor and dignity is reminiscent of the star eggs on the off Broadway stage.

But I can do my best because there are friends!
It is wonderful that there are friends who want to work together, even after fighting.

It swells at once towards the finale ... and I think.


Still, I have friends. I can not get out of my part-time life, but I do not know what the future will be, but I can do my best because there are colleagues who can support the days that continue to run towards my dreams!

And even today, there are young people who sweat their part-time silently while following their dreams.

Finally, while "Let it be" flows, the casts gather in the audience and greet you.
Total about 2 hours 20 minutes. It seemed like a long time, a quick time, and it was like a mountain and valley life.

A total of 31 people from 0th grade to 4th grade The stage of the summer of 2018, filled with each effort and thought, was filled with great applause.
From this in the near futureThere is no doubt that professional stage people will be born musical stars from Kanagawa Prefecture!
