Talented Performers of Warabi-za!

Warabi-za, Tazawako's theater company, is proud to present high-quality performances. Prospective actors come from all over Japan to try out for an audition to join the Warabi-za actors.

This play features a young talent on the rise of popularity. He is Hiroki Suzuki (鈴木 裕樹;Center top above) who plays Yanosuke (弥之助). He can dance, sing, and play musical instruments (a Japanese flute in this case), while he touches your heart and move you with emotions. Suzuki was featured as the leading character in his most recent work, a romantic comedy about Jindai Curry. Since his debut in 2009, he has been rapidly but firmly establishing his reputation to soon become recognized nationwide!

Sayo is played by Aya Takada, born in Akita and raised in Gifu Pref., has a strong background in folk music. She has been travelling with Warabi-za to Korea and USA and has been mesmerizing the crowd with her beautiful vocal and powerful dance. Shigezo is played by Tetsu Watanabe, who has been highly rated as a leading actor for many James Miki works.
