Setagaya Public Theatre opened in April 1997 inside the Setagaya Cultural Life Information Center in Sangenjaya's Carrot Tower. It is a creative arts facility centered around the Setagaya Public Theatre, a proscenium arch-shaped auditorium with 4 seats*, and the black box Theatre Tram, a 612-seat venue* with a freely transformable space. (*=basic configuration)

In addition to performing at theaters, we have contributed to cultural, artistic, and international exchange activities in Setagaya Ward, including workshops at elementary and junior high schools in the ward, and classical performing arts appreciation classes.

At Setagaya Public Theater, we not only provide finished works of art, but also our artists continue their creative activities every day at the rehearsal hall in Sangenjaya and at the theater. As a public theater, we pursue the various positive possibilities that performing arts activities such as theater, dance, and the circus can bring to society.

We ask for your continued support and cooperation in the activities of the Setagaya Public Theater.
