An unforgettable theater experience for children and adults alike

The Setagaya Public Theater will once again hold the Setagaya Children's Project 2023 from July to August 7.

Since its opening in 1997, the theater has developed various projects with the aim of becoming a theater that is familiar to children, a theater that children can enjoy, and a theater that they can enjoy. In 2014, the "Setagaya Children's Project", a project to develop a wider range of performing arts, was launched, and every year we plan creative performances and workshops for children.

"Stage Edition" will present a variety of performing arts that can be enjoyed not only by children but also adults during summer vacation, such as plays, musicals, dance performances, and rakugo.And "Workshop Edition" will hold various "Engeki Workshops" for elementary school students to high school students.
Through works and workshops that stimulate children's creativity and nurture rich sensibilities, we will deliver an unforgettable "theater experience" for children and adults during summer vacation.

Artistic director message

Do you know Setagaya Public Theater?
This is the theater on the third floor of the Carrot Tower near Sangenjaya Station.
And one more thing.There is also a theater called Theater Tram near the Setagaya Line station.

What is theater?
Have you ever been to a theater?
A theater is a place where various things such as plays, dance, circus, music, and rakugo are performed.
When everyone gathers, the theater lights up and various works begin.

People called actors appear and act and sing.
People called dancers come out and dance.
A person called a musician plays an instrument.
When the staff turn on the lights, the curtain rises and the music starts, look!
There is a mysterious world and time that you can't usually see at home or school.
Interesting things, surprising things, laughing, crying, and being moved.
There's a lot of excitement in the theater that I've never felt before.
Perhaps, there should be an experience that you will never forget.

So, why don't you come to the theater to play?
There is a lot of excitement that can only be felt here.
We are looking forward to seeing you all at the theater.
