Announcing the Cast of ‘Our Town’

Nagoya Players is very pleased to announce the cast for our 2021 production of Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize winning play Our Town.

Due to the effects of COVID-19 we were forced to postpone our 2020 production. However, the cast and crew have remained committed and determined to put on the show. They have been working diligently on an updated version for well over a year now. We are so very grateful to everyone who has contributed to the show in these very challenging times. With the pandemic winding down, we are very happy to announce the show will take stage June 12-13th, 2021 at Chikusa Playhouse.

We have a few returning faces and a lot of new talent to showcase in this production. Nagoya theater veterans Joe Sichi, Leona Cameron, Allan Van Der and John Ahern are all familiar and beloved faces. They’ll be joined on stage by newcomers to the scene Emily Bailey, Holly McNamee, and Shinsuke Tsuda. We also have a family of youngsters joining us with the adorable Uta Tsuchida and her brothers Rintaro and Nikichi. And most exciting of all is our collaboration with Meijo University’s Faculty of Foreign Language. Several students from Meijo’s drama program, lead by Prof. Masami Iwai, will be making their English-acting debuts.

This show achieves so many of the goals we’ve set for our group. The Our Town production will bring in a new batch of young talent that will receive guidance, instruction and training from our experienced pool of actors and artists. Experience and youth working together on one of the true classics of the stage is a beautiful thing to see. We’re very excited to put this amazing show together for the city of Nagoya to enjoy.
