To mark the 10th instalment of SePT’s annual Ohanashi no Mori program for children, rock musician ROLLY — a veteran of the project, performing since its launch in 2010 — again shares the spotlight with the actor Jin Katagiri, who made his debut last year.

While ROLLY is well-known through his role of the commander in NHK E-TV’s popular children’s program “Musica Piccolino”, Katagiri is also known very well to children as the voice of “Mr. Jumoku” from the same channel’s hit show, “Shakeen!

August 4th will see the performance Jin Katagiri. Most recently appearing in the TV series “It’s your turn”, he is a popular feature in radio and TV, and is also renowned for his stage skits — He is most known for his roles from the play “No. 9” and TV series “99.9: Criminal Case Lawyer.” Katagiri is also famous as a clay artist, and has been invited to present his works in Taiwan this summer.

With such talents presenting this year’s phantasmagoric reading performances, audiences of all ages are sure to have a great time.
