One of our local musical maestros has whipped up another sure-to-please act.
Check it out:
What: “WELCOME TO KOMATSU!” – an original musical
Where/When: Komatsu Dome 2 pm on March 13
In honor of the 20th anniversary of the sister city-relationship between Komatsu and Gateshead, UK, Osugi Musical Theatre will present a musical on March 13 in Komatsu and March 22-23 in Gateshead.
The story takes characters from Komatsu history and catapults them into the present – the haiku poet Matsuo Basho puts his poems online and in a chat meets 12th century dancer Hotoke Gozen, whose dream it is to travel the world…
The comedy is played in Japanese, with English narration and bilingual songs.
SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCES by ALTs SARAH KELLY and MICHAEL MARKEY not to be missed!
There are 10 people in our cast, supplemented by a chorus of 25 schoolchildren. In Gateshead, college students will sing in the chorus.
