Nagoya Players’ 2020 Season•年度の活動

2019 Recap

2019 will go down as one of Nagoya Players’ most prosperous seasons. We brought to stage two phenomenal shows, Aesop’s Fables & The Gift of the Magi. We are so grateful and appreciative for the community’s support in making these productions a huge success.

In addition to our shows we also launched our English Education Initiative which produced a series of popular textbooks and workshops. The response from our shows and activities has been very positive so we plan on bringing you even more!

2020 Theme: Fostering the Next Generation

We are stronger than ever heading into 2020. Our membership, resources and audience have grown considerably. With all this support we will be able to provide you with higher quality shows and more events to cater to every taste. Our theme for 2020 is Fostering the Next Generation. Through our partnerships, shows and workshops we have created a foundation to expose the younger generation to the theater arts. We seek to provide them with the space and opportunity to explore the medium. It is our hope the next generation of artists will embrace theater and all the wonderful potential for storytelling through performance. And for our Japanese youth, we want them to understand that language is not a barrier. English can be fun and exciting if combined with stimulating and purposeful activities.

Nagoya Players’ 2020 Season•年度の活動

MIRAI FES 2020, May 09-10th

We will start the year with a weekend of English-performance workshops for children at MIRAI Fes 2020, May 09-10th, Higashi Playhouse. Nagoya Players is very proud to be a part of the 20th Assitej World Congress.

ASSITEJ (International Association of Theatre for Children and Young People) is a global organisation for the performing arts for children and young people which was founded in 1965 in Paris. Uniting organisations and individuals who make theatre for children and young people, ASSITEJ is dedicated to the artistic, cultural and educational rights of children and young people across the globe and advocates on behalf of all children regardless of nationality, cultural identity, ability, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or religion. ASSITEJ brings people together so that they can share knowledge and practice within the field of theatre for children and young people in order to deepen understandings, develop practice, create new opportunities and strengthen the global sector.

These workshops will also introduce the beginning of Nagoya Players Junior. Our youth programming has proven very popular and we feel it is now time to create a separate team under the Nagoya Players umbrella that will focus on youth-oriented content.

OUR TOWN, JULY 04-05th

Our Town by Thornton Wilder is a Pulitzer Prize-winning play that has become one of America’s best known and most beloved shows. The story centers on the residents in the small town of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire. It’s a story of the ‘every-town’, a place we are all familiar with. Grover’s Corners represents core values shared by communities and cultures all across the world.

The show is performed in three Acts, with each act embracing the themes of Life, Love and Death.

Wilder’s writing has been praised for his beautiful delivery of universal truths. He speaks clearly and openly about what it means to be human. Our Town is a wonderful combination of humor, wisdom and sincerity. It is a fantastic show to experience live and a story that will stay with you forever.






To finish the year Nagoya Players Junior will feature a day of special short performances designed for kids! And to make it extra cool, some of the acts will be performed by kids!! There will be magic, stage, live music, dance and more.

A portion of the proceeds from this show will go towards helping children in need in Aichi.
