Nagoya Players are big fans of the Chubu Walkathon and the incredible efforts they make to raise money every year for a variety of charities in Aichi, Japan. In 2019 NP was invited to perform live at the Walkathon where we put on a special mini-performance of Aesop’s Fables.
This year the 29th Walkathon moved online and hosted a very fun live-stream. NP prepared a small slideshow of our Aesop performance for the virtual event. Please enjoy the memories with us:)
You can still support the Walkathon by making a donation or purchasing a t-shirt on their website. You can also learn more about their charitable works:
Congratulations to the organizers and volunteers at the Chubu Walkathon for breaking new ground and running another successful event. Here’s looking forward to 2021! I hope we can all be together next year and NP can perform live at the Walkathon again.
Special thanks to our amazing performers Denise Hewitt, Naudia Patterson, Atsumi Yamamoto, Amy Braun and Biagino Cristiano.
Original costumes by Shoji Fujii of Arimatsu Shibori Some.
