File.12 Magcal Performing Arts Academy 2019 Results Presentation
Miyuki Inoue (Magcal Editorial Department)
Magcal Performing Arts Academy was opened in 2014 with the aim of nurturing talent in the performing arts. The instructors include Kensuke Yokouchi (playwright and director), who serves as the school's principal, Keiko Fukasawa (composer and music director), Lucky Ikeda (choreographer), and Eri Saiki (choreographer). As a musical lover, you can't take your eyes off the trends. Magcal also reported on the performance that will be held in the summer last year.

Of course, everyone started dancing!
You will be drawn into the energetic dance that makes you feel the smallness of the stage.
Next, they earnestly sing the number from the musical "A Chorus Line," and you can feel the feelings of the academy students struggling toward their dreams.
The recital stage will consist of various songs, dances, plays, etc. that have been taught over the years, and will be woven together like a story. There's some up-tempo dancing, but there's also some soft ballads, making it a great piece of entertainment.
This is my first time trying a skit!
The person in charge of scripting and directing the skit was Takeru Ome (head of Takeru Ome's troupe). There's no way you'll develop the sense of "getting people laughing" overnight, but the script is interesting! The venue was filled with laughter, and the energy and seriousness of the academy students was palpable.
And from last summer's main performance "Bait Show -BEST Edition-" is the idol song "Mirai Create" that you can sing and dance to.
Is it true that you are aiming for a CD debut?
Next up is ``Message from a whale - Aim for zero plastic waste! ~''.
In August 2018, there was shocking news that a baby blue whale washed ashore on Yuigahama Beach in Kamakura City, and plastic trash was discovered in its stomach. Inspired by this, Kanagawa Prefecture announced the Kanagawa Zero Plastic Waste Declaration. Academy students are conveying this message in songs.
We also selected a famous scene from the Broadway musical "RENT."
At the end, it's all about singing and dancing!
As a stage performer, I may be one step away from being called a ``professional.'' However, when I see the passion of young people who continue to fight against harsh reality to reach their dreams, my heart flutters.
I wonder if I've had such a hot season too... Whether it's there or not, I might be happy if it makes me feel like I'm dreaming with you.
5 years since the school opened. Little by little, we are starting to see academy students playing an active role in various fields. It's not a world where you're rewarded for your efforts, but you have to try.
More new members will be added to the show this summer. Looking forward to a stage that is deeper than ever... Good luck! Academy student!
