Performing with the People of Beppu
Musical Company is a student group formed with the goal of creating a musical with the cooperation of APU students and citizens of Beppu City. The executive committee members are mostly students who withdrew from the Kizuna club (a theater club that has performed musicals at APU for many years) to begin job hunting. After finishing their search, these students felt compelled to get re-involved in the creation of musicals, leading to the launch of the group.
The desire to “create musicals together with local people” was inherited from the Kizuna club, which last year successfully delivered a public performance of its own musical at Beppu City Public Hall, an event that was driven by the desire to expose the people of Beppu to the world of musicals. On this occasion, the Musical Company planned to actually create a musical with Beppu locals.
