File.12 Magcal Performing Arts Academy 2019 Achievement Presentation
Miyuki Inoue (Magcal editorial department)

The Magcal Performing Arts Academy opened in 2014 with the aim of developing talent for performing arts. Including Kensuke Yokouchi (theatrical writer / director) who is the head of the school, Keiko Fukazawa (composer / music director), Lucky Ikeda (choreographer), Eri Ayaki (choreographer), etc. There are a lot of top-notch names, and as a musical lover, you can't take your eyes off the trend. Last year, Magcal also reported on the performance of this performance in the summer.

Auditions for new members will be held in the spring, but prior to that, on April 7, a results presentation was held by the students. The venue is Kanagawa Prefectural Youth Center Studio HIKARI, which has just reopened. With about 130 seats, a hot stage where 22 academy students sing and dance is unfolded in a studio of a precious scale in Kanagawa prefecture.

Not to mention the dawn, everyone's dance!
You will be drawn into an energetic dance that does not make you feel the narrowness of the stage.
Then, singing the number of the musical "Chorus Line", it seems that the thoughts of the academy students struggling toward their dreams are conveyed.

The stage of the recital is composed of various songs, dances, plays, etc. that have been taught so far, and they are spun like a story. If you think there was an up-tempo dance, there is also a ballad that sings softly, so you can fully enjoy it as entertainment.
This time I will challenge the control for the first time!
Mr. Takeru Ome (presided by Takeru Omai) was in charge of the script and direction of the contest. You can't get the feeling of "laughing" overnight, but the script is interesting anyway! The venue was surrounded by a whirlpool of laughter, and the momentum and seriousness of the academy students were also conveyed.

And from last summer's main performance "Byte Show -BEST Edition-", the idol song "Mirai Create" that sings and dances.
Is it true that you are aiming for a CD debut?

Next is "Message from Whales-Zero Garbage! ~ ”.
In August 2018, there was shocking news that a baby blue whale was launched at Yuigahama, Kamakura City, and plastic waste was found in the stomach. Inspired by this, Kanagawa Prefecture announced the "Kanagawa Plastic Garbage Zero Declaration". The academy student sings the message.

And from the Broadway musical "RENT", select a famous scene.

At the end, it's exciting with singing and dancing!

It may be one step further to call him a "professional" as a stage performer. However, when I see the hot appearance of young people who continue to fight against the harsh reality to grasp their dreams, my heart is thrilled.
I wonder if I had such a hot season ... With or without it, it may be happy to make you feel like you're dreaming together.

It has been 5 years since the school opened. The appearance of academy students playing an active role in various fields has gradually begun to be seen. It's not a world where you'll be rewarded if you do your best, but you have to take on the challenge.
More new members will join this summer's performance. Expecting a deeper stage than ever ... Good luck! Academy student!
