The seven members of Berryz Koubou will star in a stage production titled “San Oku En Shoujo,” though they will take turns playing the story’s lead character. The play is described as a love story bridging the past and the present, using the infamous “300 million yen robbery” as its motif.
A promotional flyer for the play was displayed during a press event on Wednesday. The flyer resembles a “wanted suspect” notice and includes a photo of a girl’s face, which is actually a composite using different facial features from each of the Berryz Koubou members.
“San Oku En Shoujo” will begin with performances at Ikebukuro Sunshine Theatre on September 18 and end with performances at Osaka’s Theater BRAVA! in mid-October. The theme song will be “MOON POWER,” the B-side from the new Berryz Koubou single “Maji Bomber!!” that went on sale this week. Aside from the Berryz Koubou members, the play’s cast also includes Hello! Pro Eggs members Karin Miyamoto (11) and Nanami Tanabe (10).
