Theatre Zenshinza was established by some young Kabuki actors in 1931,and in 1937 built in Musashino City the Drama & Film Institute with a studio and dwelling houses as its base. We have developed wide range of activities such as Kabuki play, historical play, popular play, present-day play, foreign play, and play for young audiences. In 1982 we built a new theatre house equipped with a turning stage and runways.Since celebrating our 70th birthday in 2001, we would promote our creative work to comfort children's heart and to face up to the future.
