     Touken Ranbu : The Musical
is scheduled to begin its official run on December 2016. This
musical was also chosen to be specially performed at the Itsukushima Shrine in Hiroshima prefecture, which is one of Japan’s big three sites and also registered on the UNESCO World Heritage (Cultural Heritage) List. The performance is called ‘Touken Ranbu: The Musical, Commemorating the 20th Anniversary of Itsukushima Shrine’s UNESCO World Heritage Site Registration.’

     This special performance will be a part of the event held to commemorate 20 years since the registration of the Itsukushima Shrine, also recognized as a Japanese National Treasure, onto the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1996. Only a single performance is scheduled for the night of November 12, 2016.

     This performance will feature a total of 11 actors including 6 Touken Boys from the ‘The Strange Tale of Atsuga Shimura-san’ and 5 new actors working on a fresh performance that has been in the works since September. The same 11 Touken Boys will come together on stage again during ‘Touken Ranbu: The Musical’ later in December.
The 11 Touken Boys will descend on Itsukushima Shrine’s stage to give a special one-time performance composed of famous scenes and music from ‘The Strange Tale of Atsuga Shimura-san’ stage and a brand new performance. Witness the historical moment within Touken Musical, where the Touken Boys will unite on stage for one night only.
